  • whats the question? I dont mean to be harsh but there isnt one. I am sure plenty of people would be willing to adopt if it was that easy. My husband and I looked into it. I have 5 kids, 2 grandkids, and a large house, and income enough to support more kids. I was denied because I had been divorced in the past.

  • Ummm... I hate to tell you guys, but those are bull reasons to be denied and the Chinese government and the US government don't deny for those reasons. I've adopted from China...oh, and those videos are OLD! As in really old and pretty much are false. They love those kids in those orphanages...you should see how the ayis look when they have to hand over their babies to the adoptive parents. It is the most heartbreaking thing to watch. I bawled for hours the day we met our daughter because her ayis were so heartbroken.
    Not to mention the current wait for adopting from China is over 5 years from the time your dossier is accepted to referral. The wait is extending every month. They have matched up to June 2006. China is Hague compliant and they are req'd by international law to place children in country before internationally. The regs have become stricter, but age is 35-55 and single women can again adopt.

  • PAPs cannot have a BMI over 40, no depression meds regardless of reason, no prior convictions...
    It takes at least 6 months to finish the documents necessary for a Chinese adoption, many layers of government have to be dealt with, and then the wait... it is emotionally draining to say the least and it should be thoroughly researched before embarking on the journey. Posts like these that are intended to draw sympathy are the worst reasons to adopt...

  • :( my husband and I would love to adopt a child, however we don't have 20 grand plus to adopt a child. Makes me so sad that adoption is so expensive.

    Foster- adopt is typically free or a minimal fee. You don't have to go through a domestic infant or international adoption to adopt a child.
