First of all, single parent adoption provides a much more solid environment: a home free from the issues of an unstable, broken home and its effects on the child. Single parents are usually of higher education and have higher incomes in comparison to the countries average. They have concentrated on their careers and have established a stable home that would benefit a child. Divorced parents, on the other hand, are dealing with emotional and financial stress, which can negatively affect a child. According to New York Times, “out of one-fifth of the nation’s 51.1 million Caucasian children, over half of the 9.8 million African American children and almost one-third of the 7 million Hispanic children live with one parent due to divorce and unwed mothers”. With these types of statistics, there is no reason to discriminate against a single person for adopting a child when he or she is quite capable of providing a stable and nurturing environment.
