Advice on adoption agencies

Post by SH123 on Thu 1 Sep 2011 - 12:24

Hi there! I wonder if anyone has any advice on adoption agencies? We are looking to adopt interracially and have now been to an orientation meeting at Child Welfare and ABBA adoptions and do not know how to pick! We did not get a "gut" feel at either of them - perhaps someone has some good / bad experiences to share that will help me make up my mind!

Hi SH, sorry Im not clued up on adoption agencies at all.

Can you not get a list of agencies from a social worker or the child welfare?

Hi SH123 i'm sorry i only saw this post now. I adopted my daughter through a private social worker so i haven't dealt with Child Welfare or ABBA but do have friends that have gone through Child Welfare so if you need any help or advice you can email me on michele@sujean.co.za

Hi there,

We are currently on the waiting list with Child Welfare.

I personally believe the service any Welfare Organisation offers can not come close to the service you will receive privately.

We have adopted our daughter privately but unfortunately this time around have to go through Welfare.

I'm afraid that with the list being so long we might never be considered.

But we have to have hope,...

Good luck!

The 1st time around we did an inter-country adoption, so cannot eleborate on the difference between a private/welfare agency, however, the 2nd time around we adopted here in SA and worked through a welfare/church agency, and the service was great and the process went smoothly. I have absolutely no complaints! I've however spoken to many other families and seems that the only difference between what we experienced and what they experienced by utilising a private agency/social worker, was the difference in costs.
Wish you all the best! Smiley
