Quoting Book_Worm:" All important points but the question I had is what suggestions would you have to help fix all these problems."
Quoting crazy coupon lady:" I dont know if its this way in the states, but here it can be very simple to adopt, if you foster first ... [snip!] ... I hate the fact that it is easier to adopt overseas then children from your own country state/province whichever. Its a shame"Here it is rare that termination happens. At least in our county, so while becoming attached to a child you have to also watch their parents still have visitation, until the termination actually happens which can take up to a year.
Quoting xTJ:" Do you guys have a problem with the race/heritage type thing? In the UK they prefer to place a child ... [snip!] ... of a different race so they have went on and adopted say a Chinese/Indian/etc baby from those actual countries. It's crazy! "I find it ridiculous. It is more common here in the native americans, then it is very difficult to find them foster homes because only so many people are willing to take older children yet they can only be with Native American people.
Quoting Saffy Sly:" The problem with adopting through the foster system is a lot of those kids have all sorts of issues and ... [snip!] ... the process of adopting in the states. I'd also perhaps have a bit of a tax credit for someone who adopts within the country."I agree with everything you said!
