Single Father Adoption
Single fathers are more common in today’s world than you may think. Yet, they want to adopt, just as much, as couples such as LGBT, military, younger couples, etc. Adoption Choices of Kansas hopes that you will work with a caseworker in looking at potential single prospective adoptive fathers to adopt your baby.
Single adoptive fathers bring joy to the world, and should remain open as a choice for you when deciding the type of adoptive parent you may be looking for in regards to adopting your baby.
Who is a single father?
A single adoptive father is a male adult who may or may not have a child of his own. Most often, a single adoptive father may seek adoption because he longs to expand his family. He may have been married, divorced or not interested in a relationship at all. Each and every single adoptive father will have his own array of reasons for choosing adoption; yet, they all share one thing in common: the dream of parenthood.
Single adoptive fathers make wonderful parents as they are usually better off financially, better educated and wholly devoted to raising a family.
Types of Single Adoptive Fathers
If you are in the process of selecting the best adoptive parent for your child, you may have a preference as to what type you want. Adoption Choices of Kansas would like to share with you the types of single adoptive fathers you may encounter as you look through our adoptive parent profile books.
- He may have a child (or children) of his own. As stated above, single fathers come from a wide variety of circumstances. A common one is that they may have a child (or children) of their own, but want to expand. Some circumstances of single adoptive fathers may include, but are not limited to:
- He is divorced and has custody over his children.
- His partner may have passed away.
- He may have adopted previously.
- His partner may be incarcerated.
- He may be raising children of other family members, like his brother or sisters.
Single adoptive fathers with children may come as an advantage to you. They are familiar with raising a child. They understand what a child needs and how to make sure those needs are met. Basic necessities — food and shelter — will never be an issue, and they will always be loved and cared for.
Single adoptive fathers may also be financially stable, and could be fully prepared to adopt your baby. Most adoptive fathers will not attempt to adopt your baby if they know that they cannot properly take care of him or her. Financial stability is important, because it shows that a father is capable of providing basic necessities, and it can help, because taking care of any baby is expensive, and costs quickly add up. Middle aged to older adoptive fathers may especially be financially stable, which can work to your advantage. Younger adoptive fathers may receive support from their parents, and this could help if you are considering a younger adoptive single father.
- He may not have any children. Single fathers without children are an interesting, yet good type of adoptive single to keep an eye on. They are of varying ages and they may have been single their entire lives, but have always wanted to be a father. Fathers without children can be a great experience not only for you, but also for them. They can experience having a child firsthand, and can do so without having to worry about processes like conception. For single fathers without children, your baby can bring light into their world and help them fulfill their dream of fatherhood.
Despite being childless, single adoptive fathers are known to be more motivated to start a family as they are more settled in their lives. They may be older and retired, or middle-aged and have an excellent career. Some may even work from home, allowing for your child to always be around his or her adoptive father. Whether he has children or not, though, a single adoptive father can make an amazing choice for your son or daughter, and we hope that you will take the time to consider them as an option.
