In evaluating any adoption opportunity, prospective adoptive parents must always look closely at the medical, financial, legal, and emotional risks that will be associated with that opportunity. They must then determine if the result of an evaluation in each of these areas falls within a range they can accept. This will help determine not only if a particular adoption opportunity is "right" for them, but also if they are "right" for that adoption, based on a realistic comparison of the existing risks with their own personal comfort level.
