Increasing number of adoptable children

The typical profiles of mothers who put their children up for adoption are: (1) very young mothers who accidentally got pregnant; (2) older women who already have several children and did not plan to have another; and (3) women who for cultural reasons or in insecure circumstances choose to give away a child in order not to put their own survival, or that of their family, or the future of the child itself, at risk. Less often, there are cases of rape or near-rape. The woman feels that keeping the child will always remind her of that man and that she will never be able to give the child the happiness it needs.
