Our International Adoption Panel Discusses the Adoption Process

An Adoption.com Original Video | International Adoption Answers

What are the pros and cons of international adoption? This group of panelists share their experiences and their expertise about international adoption.

Parents who have grown their family through international adoption will tell you that it is a lot of work. It’s also time-consuming.  There is red tape involved with governments, agencies and individuals. International adoption can also get expensive as time drags on, visits are required, etc.  However, those who have adopted internationally have done so because they knew that’s where their children were.

International adoption specifics vary by country. For those hoping to adopt, the first step is deciding what type of adoption you want. If you choose international adoption, this panel suggests you take a deep breath and go in ready to work!
