Singles Adopting- Unmarried women building families

The trend is continuing: women are developing careers, staying single longer, and wanting children. Many adoption agencies are still clinging to traditional views on whom can adopt, even though the increase in single women adoption continues. Single women are more agressive than couple when it comes to the adoption of healthy infants. Agencies try to steer these women towards older children or children with special needs. One women says that her adopted children have fulfilled her need for a family, she doesn't need a husband right now. Then the article goes on to talk about single women and artificial insemination. But the article is basically about strong women making a families for themselves even though they have to overcome many obstacles.
