Re: International Adoptions: where to begin?

Animo Angela y Felices Fiestas Patrias!

(i just said happy peruvian national day and wished her well in Spanish)

I really loved hearing that you are doing well...would you be adopting from PEru? As a peruvian myself, we would like to explore that road sometime in the future...

I wish you the best, keep us posted!

Re: International Adoptions: where to begin?

Hi Guys,

As I promised to keep you guys posted on how the procedure and paperwork were going, I have to say we are almost, almost done with the proceedings prior to the decision the social workers will take about letting us adopt. The road was a bit thorny as we got asked personal/private/you would not imagine!! questions but it is going to be worth it. It has been almost 10 months since we started collecting paper work and meeting with social worker, filling questionnaires and attending a course.
At th beginning on April we have our final meeting with the social worker so YAY! Cross your fingers for us please, after that, if we are approved then we can send our file to Peru and wait for a match

Phew!!!!!!!

PS: If anyone has questions about the procedure please PM me

40 years ago, my brothers, sister and I had the privilege and fortune to be adopted by the two amazing people who became our parents. It is a wonderful and selfless thing that you and all others who have adopted, or are seeking to adopt, are doing.

I wish you all the courage and success in the world.
Thanks so much for sharing such a personal story with me, you touched my heart! HUGS!

Re: International Adoptions: where to begin?

Good luck Angela, I know this has been a very bumpy path and tough on the emotions. I'm rooting for you as you know all of us who know you are. I can't imagine a kinder lady so they would be mad not to approve you.

Fingers, legs, toes, arms and even eyes crossed for you

Re: International Adoptions: where to begin?

While im not adding any particular information to this thread, I give massive respect to anyone who goes through this process to help out a child in need. My godmother just adopted a Chinese boy in Australia and it has made her and her husband so happy, while giving a child in a poor situation a better life. I hope it all goes well

Re: International Adoptions: where to begin?

Is the process of adopting from that country facilitated by the fact that you're a Peruvian citizen (you still are, I presume)? Or do they only look at the fact that you're doing it from Switzerland?
