Hi! I'm new here and just need some answers to a few quick questions. My DH and I are thinking about adopting from the U.S. Is this terribly expensive? We live in Sask. and are not sure where to begin. What might be the average wait time? Is it longer than in Canada? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I don't have any answers but I just wanted to wave hi! as I am also from SK. Carolyn
I'm curious about this myself, since I'm in SK, and was recently told by the Saskatchewan foster support system that we should "consider private adoption as the goal of foster care is not to put children in adoptive homes".... It seems like Saskatchewan is private adoption, or foster care, not too many cases of people actually adopting *from* foster care though, and other provinces (so far) seem reluctant to even consider placing their waiting kids in SK. Nevermind how many statistics you see about X number of children waiting for homes all the time....
You could only Adopt Privately.Privately, there are more Adoptive Families . Than there are Babies and Children...You would probably have the same amount of wait as in Canada with time!!!
