The meaning of Adoption in dream | Dream interpretation

If you adopt someone in a dream, it means that relatives will soon ask for your help.

If you’re adopted in a dream, it means that enemies may soon raise their hands against you.

If you adopt children in a dream it means that you will have difficulties in your love life.

Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

(see Baby, Orphaned)

If you see yourself being adopted by a group or family, this means acceptance among the people pictured, or self-acceptance with regard to your perceived roles and responsibilities to that group.

Seeing yourself alone waiting for adoption is an alternative type of desertion dream. Alternatively, this reveals insecurity about not being accepted or loved, or feeling totally out of place in your surroundings.

What exactly is being adopted? This symbol can represent an aspect of yourself— an idea or a characteristic with which you’re becoming more accepting and comfortable, thereby adopting it into your being.

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

Bringing in a brand new aspect of self, new beginning can be had now. You’ve earned it.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

If the dreamer does not have children in real life (but the individual does want them), these types of oneiric thoughts will simply reflect such unrealized wishes. Otherwise, the adoption may mean that you are accepting responsibilities that do not belong to you. Although you might receive admiration by doing so, it really makes your life harder. On the other hand, these images are also related to infertility and distrust in your own capabilities. Therefore, you should rely more on yourself and try to develop the creative aspects of your personality.

Dreaming that you are being adopted ensures a profitable future, while adopting a child predicts wealth accumulation during old age, or an inheritance if it is a relative’s adoption.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

1. If adopting a child, dreamer is accepting some proposal made in waking life, such as a new idea.

2. If child is rejected, a new idea is rejected.

3. If dreamer feels adopted, he/she is feeling out of place.

4. Not being dealt with honestly by someone.

5. Feel­ing that one wants to be adopted by and protected by someone.

New American Dream Dictionary | Joan Seaman - Tom Philbin

Taking on something foreign—giving aid. Longing for the “child within.” Here you should always ask what is missing that would make you happy. What would you like to take on?

Little Giant Encyclopedia | Klaus Vollmar

Signifies acceptance (if you are getting adopted), rejection if you are putting someone up for adoption. Also it could mean adopting new ideas, or a need to do so.

Encyclopedia of Dreams | Michael and Elizabeth Thiessen

Formally selecting as one’s own; see “transplant”

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

Symbolic of caring for orphans or being welcomed into God’s family, Rom. 8:15

Dreams of fostering and adoption suggest a new approach to life, or taking on the responsibility of someone, or something, that needs your care and help to grow.

If you fostered or adopted a baby in your dream, did you welcome the child into your home with love and gratitude? If you are thinking about adopting or fostering, your dream could reflect your feelings about this, but if this isn’t in your plans, the dream may be showing you how satisfying it can be to offer love and guidance to someone who needs your care. Do you need to find an outlet for your urge to love and nurture selflessly in waking life? This doesn’t have to be a child, but perhaps a partner, a pet, a friend, a project or a charity.

If you dreamed of fostering or adopting someone you know in waking life, perhaps you long to lavish attention on that particular person.... The Element Encyclopedia
