Why might an adoption not work out at the last second?

For many people who look into adoption, their biggest fear is that the whole thing is going to fall through at the last second.

After all, for the prospective parents, they have to make a choice to love a child enough to bring them into their family. This is a big mental and emotional step, but they have to take it before they actually know 100 percent that they're going to get that child. It's a risk, and it can be devastating when it doesn't pan out.

If this happens to you, you are not alone. It's more common than many people think. One woman was trying to adopt for a little over a year and had five different agreements fall through.

Why does this happen? There are plenty of reasons for every case. In some instances, it's a foster care situation where the authorities expect the parents to give up their rights, but they don't, and the child gets placed back with the birth parents. In other cases, a woman who is pregnant decides that she wants to give the child up, but then, after actually giving birth, she can't bring herself to do it, and she decides to keep the child.

The reality is that these things do happen. Adoption is complicated. There's no way around that. The key is simply to understand how the process works, what steps you need to take and what legal options you have. It may take time to actually get through an adoption that does pan out, but it will be worth it when you do.
