The difference between a career and a job is that a career is a chosen path, something we consider as a pursuit to follow throughout our professional lives. A job is something we often take in order to pay bills while we search for that special career opportunity.
Adoption careers are some of the most rewarding, and truly fit the definition of "career" in that they involve a commitment and devotion to children, one that can last throughout the lives of many people - children and families. Whether those children are yet to be born or have been removed from their family setting for the saddest of reasons, adoption workers have the opportunity set standards of best practice and best outcomes by making carefully considered and researched decisions that help children find permanent homes in loving families.
Careers in the adoption fieldare in the professionals areas of law, counseling and therapy, medicine, mental health, and social work, as well as in areas of Internet technology, and areas that provide support and ancillary services such as office management, investigation, translation, and others. Another area that often develops into a career is in the volunteer segment, such as CASA volunteers, information dissemination, and others.
If you are devoted to children and want to do something to help, there are many wonderful opportunities.
