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