Divorcing and Thinking about Adopting a Baby as a Single Parent?
An article recently published in the Huffington Post discusses a new trend emerging in Hollywood: recently divorced celebrities adopting babies. The list of Hollywood’s recently divorced mothers with newly adopted children is growing. Madonna adopted a child after her split from Guy Ritchie. Sandra Bullock also adopted a child after she divorced Jesse James. Most recently, reports circulated that suggest that Eva Longoria is looking to adopt a child after her divorce from Tony Parker is finalized.
While this trend may be growing, particularly within the celebrity community, the Huffington Post article tries to make a point: while adoption is a wonderful thing, adoption immediately following a divorce may pose a variety of difficult challenges . As any divorced person could recount, divorce is a stressful, life-changing event. Recently divorced individuals must cope with a new lifestyle while dealing with raw emotions. As cute as babies can be, they need ample amounts of love, attention, and patience. As many new divorcees are running low on emotional stamina, it may be difficult for them to cope with the demanding needs of a newly adopted child.
