Adoption in South Africa

21 May 2014, 07:42
I want to adopt, and am almost done with screening.  The reality is that children are institutionalised and not deemed adoptable because a parent visits them at least once year.  That child remains in the care of the state and in that institution with no hope of a loving home or better education.

  UNICEF world wide has implemented changes wherever they can in every country that they possibly can, in promoting same culture and foster care rather than valued adoption that has no race or culture base.  They should be challenged for their anti adoption stance and the bleed through of legislation is very clear in our own legislation by promoting same culture adoptions over multicultural adoptions. This is a crying shame in a country like SOUTH AFRICA. I WILL adopt in this country, and I will find that little girl that would love a mother like me.  Child Welfare is probably the most unfriendly adoption organization that I have had the displeasure of encountering.  So yes, I did go private, and yes it is expensive, but the children need a voice to be heard and to be seen.  These MILLIONS of children deserve better, and it begins with changing and implementing policies and frameworks that benefit the children FIRST.
