Infant adoption is very popular and desired by many hopeful adoptive parents. In most cases, the birth mother decides on the adoptive family she would like to parent her child; this is called an independent or private adoption. Infant adoption can mean many things including newborn adoption to a toddler.
As to whether is it “hard,” it depends so much on the specific preferences of the adoptive parents. A couple who seeks a Caucasian baby girl born in June has unrealistic preferences and that may mean a longer wait. If their adoption preferences are more open, it’s likely that they will adopt a baby more quickly.
