There are many reasons why people may be interested in adopting a child from another country. Adopting a child from overseas is a very significant step to take, both for you and the child. You will need to consider carefully how adoption will affect you and your extended family and how you will be able to support a child’s needs and identity throughout their childhood and into adulthood.
Intercountry adoption is a different process from domestic adoption with its own set of practices and requirements. Some of the procedures are similar to domestic adoption, such as the home study, but adopters also have to deal with the regulations of the countries they are adopting from.
Unlike domestic adoption, intercountry adoption is not free and a charge is made for the assessment process.
