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
- 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.
