  Baby boom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some contest the general conventional wisdom that baby booms signify good times and periods of general economic growth and stability, but this is a controversial position that ignores much of the well-documented historical record from the 1500s to present.
The term Baby Boom most often refers to the dramatic post-World War II baby boom (notice the rate of change on the chart below), with the term Baby Boomer referring to the persons born during that iconic era.

 Post-World War II baby boom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As is often the case with a large war, the elation of victory and large numbers of males returning to their country triggered a baby boom after the end of World War II in many countries around the globe, notably those of Europe, Asia, North America, and Australasia.
In Canada, the baby boom is usually defined as the generation born from 1947 to 1966—Canadian soldiers were repatriated later than American servicemen, and Canada's birthrate did not start to rise until 1947, and most Canadian demographers prefer to use the later date of 1966 as the boom's end in that country.
The birth years of the baby boom as noted being both short and long lived, creates what many believe to be a myth to the notion of defining baby boomers as one "generation", as a unified concept is clearly not possible.

 Domestic Adoption Baby Boom - Exploiting Women and Families in America
But by announcing domestic adoption "baby booms" these agencies might as well be announcing their role in the exploitation of United States citizens.
The cruelest tactic used to obtain a baby is the use of the open adoption "carrot", the promise to a mother or family of continuing contact with their child.
A domestic adoption "baby boom" should not be a source of pride, but of shame on the part of agencies, medical experts, the government and others for having exploited citizens of our own country, the United States, to obtain babies.
