I’m a big fan of international adoption. I even have a sister-in-law named Maia Weisberg who was adopted from China!
But this week’s important Washington Post article on rising rates of international adoption among Jewish families also discusses a terrifying trend- 54% of Jewish women in their early 30s are childless in comparison with 28% in general American society.
It turns out that a significant percentage of Jewish women are pushing off marriage and motherhood in order to pursue career and advanced degrees, but when they finally want to have children, their bodies aren’t able. Heartbreaking.
