The following are some recent case studies from Adoption
Lucy and her husband wanted to adopt a child from another country but they weren't sure which country. The information we provided explained what was involved in adopting from another country, the eligibility criteria, possible costs involved and more information about each country to assist them with their decision. After this initial information we continued to support Lucy when she needed advice on filling out documentation such as the Expression of Interest form and answered any further questions that she had. We kept in touch and communicated with Lucy to ensure that she had all of the information we needed.
My husband and I wanted to adopt a child from another country but we werent sure about what was involved or which country we wanted to adopt from. Adoption Australia sent us a lot of useful information including lots about the different countries we could adopt from which greatly helped us with our decision. She even helped us when we weren't sure about how to fill out some of the forms
Nicole and her husband already had a family with two children and wanted to adopt a child from another country. They weren't sure if they would be eligible to adopt considering their age and the fact that they already had children. Luckily they came to us for advice because we could tell them that, yes they are eligible to adopt from some specific countries. We provided information on the eligibility criteria for each country that had an adoption agreement with Australia, along with recommendations on which countries they would be more likely to have success with.
We weren't sure if we would be able to adopt but Adoption Australia provided us with lots of information regarding the different countries we could adopt from and how to go about this. She explained the criteria for each country which greatly helped our decision making.
An email from Tracey indicated she was really interested in adopting a child, possibly from overseas. She had built up a good life for herself running her own business and being in a house of her own, and she wanted to find out more about adopting, which was something she'd been considering for a few years. We sent her details about the different countries open for adoption and the requirements for applying to adopt. She found the information very helpful and was really happy with the details we provided.
Danielle and her partner knew they wanted to find out more about overseas adoption but didn't know what the options were for the different countries. They emailed us saying any information would be helpful, so we sent them the details surrounding the countries that are open for adoption to help give them a clearer idea of what's required. Each country can have quite different expectations for people wishing to adopt, so we knew the information would be invaluable to them for helping them narrow down their choices.
Horst and his wife had been married for over a decade. They were both financially stable, with a cozy four bedroom home. Unfortunately, they had been trying to have kids for several years but had not been able to conceive. They then decided adoption was right for them, and were curious about adopting children from Lithuania to fill their home. Our staff gave them all the important information about adopting children from Lithuania, what would be expected from them, the estimated costs of the process, and what to expect from the procedure.
