Open Letter to UNICEF South Africa on ADOPTION Difficulties

03 June 2014, 07:37
I would like to know why I am having so much trouble in trying to adopt one of South Africa's neglected orphaned children.

Being South African, and having the means, I want to adopt, but have faced the barrage of unpleasantness from Child Welfare who will only place babies and NOT children?

What is UNICEF doing about promoting adoption and interracial adoption, because this is my request too. Why is the South African Government not being made to see the short comings and implement a drive to increase social workers to help with the case load.

Why must children be placed in the same cultural backgrounds when the largest available pool of children come from a culture of non adoption.

Please, there are many women out there, I am Jewish, single, financially stable, and I have a home......why is the process so horrible, unfriendly and quite frankly it is not in the child's best interest to remain institutionalized when a home can be given.
