Need some info

Post by Lameez on Wed 31 Mar 2010 - 6:11

Hi ladies

After our failed IVF DH and I spoke briefly about adoption, although we are not ready yet for adoption because of all the emotional issues and IVF that we want to deal with, I would just like to know for future references what the procedures are for going through the adoption process, I am based in Cape Town and will obviously not be able to afford private, but if we do consider it what would be the first steps we would have to take. Your info will be appreciated.

Hi Lameez,

Although I'm much more clued up on private adoptions I do have some information I can share with you.

Please send an email to hannahshope@24.com and I will gladly forward them to you!

Hang in there!!
