Adoption Myths Busted, Part 6
X "If you adopt a baby, you'll get pregnant."
Despite this couple's experience that seems to perpetuate this myth, after their story you'll hear from experts that this really is a myth and why.
According to RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association, this is one of the most painful myths for couples to hear. First it suggests that adoption is only a means to an end, not an happy and successful end in itself. Second, it is simply not true. Studies reveal that the rate for achieving pregnancy after adopting is the same as for those who do not adopt.
