For the past year Carol and I have been discussing adopting a child. We officially started the process when we met with Susan Wasserman a few weeks ago in February.  Susan is a private social worker based in Krugersdorp. Since the first orientation meeting, I have been working on acquiring all the necessary documentation. This includes:

  • Certified copies of ID docs
  • Marriage certificate (if applicable)
  • Proof of residence
  • Income/Expenses
  • Police clearance certificate
  • Form 30 clearance certificate
  • Character references
  • Medical certificate
  • Psych assessment report

One of the requirements is to meet with the social every 2 weeks or so for about 4 sessions. We have had our first session this week.

I personally don’t have any preference to race or gender of the child.


I’m really touched by the reference letters that people have written for us.
