Thanks!

Is it possible for these ages: 5-yo and a 3-yo pair of siblings to be adopted? Elder is a girl and younger is a boy.

Helping a friend, a single mother who is struggling financially and their father is running away from responsibilities. Parents are divorced.

The mother hopes to find a good family for the siblings and grow up in a complete and happier family.

Hi I am new here and also a single female trying to adopt. I have not done HSR as I wonder if it is difficult to get approval for single. How is your HSR experience so far?

Hi everyone

Came across this forum and hope to meet fellow adoptive/prospective parents.
I'm a single mother looking to adopt. I already have my HSR (a long and tedious process) and starting my search.

I have the briefing few months ago. I am filling up the home study and submitting it soon. I just have a feeling that it's not easy to pass the home study as a single adopter
Hi there....how did it go for you? I'm also a single looking to adopt...so can understand how tough it can be.:)

Yes, I had encounters with 2 such agencies. Quite a disappointing experience.
Some withheld info, like not breaking down what the costs involve etc. Some send me photos and chase me whether I want and if I didn't respond immediately they will chase quite rudely. o_O

<font color="ff0000">Hi Chris,</font>
the process of BC is you go to ICA with all documents stated in the letter you get from lawyer(ICA will send to the lawyer instead of us). an appointment will be given. an officer will help to process the BC n you will get it on the spot. The officer is so friendly n greeted us "CONGRATULATIONS!!" when he handed us the laminated BC. Chinese characters can now be printed together with the other particulars.(i am so worried bcos of my lousy chinese handwriting).

On the same day, with same officer, we applied the citizenship for my daughter. officer will helped check thru whether we had filled the form correctly, documents are ready as requested in the letter. then officer will send to the dept. who in charge of it to process... they will leave contact number n names who r in charge for u to call them in case u wanted to know abt the status...

DH n i had thumbs up for ICA services yesterday. we r impressed with their services n efficient...

<font color="ff0000">Catherine,</font>
i would think the so called whole process is over only when we receive the citizenship for my younger DD. another 3 mths to wait... but my family r very happy when we brought back the BC yesterday...

Thank you for all your help & advises!!

I have just received my in-principle approval for my dependent pass. MSF took more than 3 weeks to issue.

Hi all!

I just applied for HSR and will be going for my first interview in a few weeks time. Would just want to know of the experience that you guys went through during the HSR assessment?

And would the VWO also be able to match us with a baby after they assess us and after we got the HSR?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, for me, it is a very emotional experience as I have to recount my infertility journey and my loses. However, there is nothing to fear. Just answer the questions truthfully. The counselor is very understanding.

The counselor is also looking for the support between the couple.

The VWO is able to match you with a baby but just bear in mind that it is not easy to find a baby in Singapore. You would also need to pay $200 to register with the VWO.

In the end, I opt not to register with my VWO as I have already identify my baby.

Hi Lis,

I would like to share with you. My aunt(now i know SHE is suppose to be my aunt!=P) fm indonesia called my mom just now, telling us that there will be a newborn girl and boy available for adoption, who will be borne in Jan2007!!!

But after asking my mom what r my DH, DD n mine chinese horoscopes. My aunt said the newborns r not suitable for us as they will "Xiang-Cong" with 3 of us. She advised us to wait for 2007 after chinese new year's "little piggie" who will be good for 3 of us. I didn't know there r such believes too!! Anyway, i know my aunt is doing us good!!!

Hi

I read your post and got excited. Would your aunt be willing to help someone else adopt. Our first child is from Indonesia but I don’t want to go back to an agency and would rather go through real families and let the birth mother

Thank you so much

Hi VQ,

Yes, you did sound like it... I guess that is the problem with writing... miscommunications do happen...


Hi Elizabeth,

I guess all of us go into adoption with a lingering fear and doubt. But we are all doing well now aren't we?

Hi all,

Looks like we could move on to start another thread on bringing up adopted kids? Issues and concerns? Babies are cute and all that but they do grow and start to talk, think, etc etc, then we'll have new things to grapple with? Even my 3-year-old now is asking questions already - I have told him that he has two daddies and mummies since he was about 2. Of course he can't really get the concept of adoption but I can see that he will ask more really soon, with the way this chatterbox is progressing.

So why not we start a thread to keep in touch as our babies grow?

What say you? I might start a thread asking for mummies/daddies who were adopted themselves or have siblings who were adopted. It'll be great to hear their growing-up stories, especially the emotional part. Will have to find time to do this... will keep you people informed.

Please do start a thread or support group on bringing up adopted children. We so need one selena

Hi,
We are still discussing at home for possible adoption. Could you share here how did you take the decision? You sit around the table and decide or what? I want to ask something else also. Do you think that you will be able to replace the real mother. I am really afraid that I won`t cope as a mother.

I have brought up the topic of adoption to my husband after my still birth. To pacify me, he went along for the pre-adoption briefing with me. After the briefing, both of us felt that we were not ready. Subsequently I have another miscarriage. After that, we went ahead with the adoption process.

Actually once baby comes into your life, you would not feel any different from biological kids. You would feel that you are the mum as this little life depends on you entirely.

Till now I keep telling my husband that I am satisfied with my life now as I have my son. I cannot imagine the sadness and emptiness that we would be feeling if he did not come into our life.

Discuss with your family and go for the pre-adoption talk. From there, you would know if you are ready.
