Book Classifications:Parenting and Family, Politics and Government, Professional and Education, Reference
This self-help adoption book is organized around 23 steps and includes detailed coverage of every aspect of the process, including organizing a home study, fulfilling your state’s requirements, meeting U.S. immigration prerequisites, and picking a country with adoptable children in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, or Oceania. It includes filing with U.S. immigration and traveling abroad to meet, adopt, and emigrate your child.
For updated information, I recommend researching the websites of the U.S. Consulates in countries that interest you. Review the U.S. Immigration and Citizenship site for forms and procedures. www.usimmigration.com.
Be certain to find an experienced international adoption agency by contacting the Joint Council on Childrens Services www.jointcouncil.org and the National Council for Adoption www.adoptioncouncil.org for experienced, trustworthy member agencies.
