Adoption

Opt to adopt

Many people choose to become parents by adopting a baby, either because they cannot have children of their own or because they want to give another child a home and family. So what does adoption entail?

The adoption option

Adoptive parents overwhelmingly report experiencing tremendous joy and satisfaction from adopting, and in most cases consider an adopted child as fully “theirs” as a biological child.

The decision to adopt is not taken lightly and usually involves much soul-searching on the part of the adoptive parents. There are many considerations including the race and age of the child, as well as the fact that you will have to undergo intense scrutiny to ensure your suitability as a parent.

The process of adopting can be stressful and frustrating, especially if it follows a long period during which a couple has tried to conceive and have had come to terms with not being able to.

Private adoption agencies offer services such as counselling of birth parents, counselling of couples, screening of applicants for adoption, adoption placements, international adoptions and home studies, family adoptions and post-adoption aftercare.

There have been many changes in South Africa regarding adoption in the past few years, including changing social and economic circumstances, birth fathers’ rights, a specified waiting period before finalising an adoption and the legalisation of abortions.

How does it work?

South African law requires that prospective parents be screened and every application is considered individually according to circumstances. The screening begins with an interview and involves a full psycho-social assessment by a social worker.

You will be required to furnish your social worker with various documents, your life history and photos of yourself. This becomes your profile and is subsequently used to match a child with the adoptive parents.

Once applicants have been fully screened and accepted as potential adopters, they are placed on a waiting list until a suitable child becomes available. The waiting period depends on what your parameters are in terms of the child you are looking for.

Closed adoption

In a closed adoption, the adoptive parents have no contact with the birth mother and it is only the social worker who deals with her.

Open adoption

In an open adoption, the birth mother and the adoptive parents meet and have the opportunity to get to know each other. The adoptive parents also have a number of choices in terms of what they are willing to pay for and how they want to support the birth mother, including such things as court fees, social worker’s fees and medical costs.

As much as there are strict protocols and legal requirements, there is also a degree of flexibility that is supportive of the emotional and psychological outcomes of adoption. In some cases, the adoptive mother can opt to breastfeed with the help of medication and techniques to stimulate breastmilk production, and she can be present at the birth.

There is a window period of 60 days during which the birth mother can change her mind and ask for her baby back. This is a period of extreme anxiety for the adoptive parents.

Families often find themselves in circumstances where children need to be adopted by either step-parents or other family members. It is helpful to explore these issues with a professional person before embarking on the legal process.

What about the birth mother?

The decision to give a child up for adoption is heart-rending and takes great courage. It is important for the birth mother to avail herself of the counselling and other services available to ensure she gets all the emotional and practical support she is going to need.  

Adopting a child is a difficult process but if you are armed with the right information, a strong professional and emotional support base and the right frame of mind, the journey towards parenthood can be made much easier.

Hi, my husband and I are researching adoption in South Africa. I am 28 years and my husband 30 but due to health issues I get miscarriages. We have been told there are no white babies available to adopt in SA and we might as well give up! Is this true? We dont know which way to go from here.

Hi, my husband and I have been married and trying to conceive for 10 years now, but with no success. We are both 37 years old. Its really tough because all I want is to be a mother so badly. My husband and I will give a baby a loving and stable home. I know we will be good parents because we have so much love to give a child. I have no siblings and have lost both my parents, and i feel that I will be able to give all my love to a child. I will then have my own little family. We would love to adopt either an indian or white baby. Please if anyone wants a loving home for your baby, with a mother that will focus all her attention on him/her, please contact me or post a reply on this website.

Priscilla

Hi I am currently pregnant 4 weeks and I am considering having an abortion as I can't pay for the hospital fees or check ups or the clothing changes as my belly grows and more importantly I can't provide for this baby and before any one starts judging me I did not just have unprotected sex and expected not to get pregnant me and my so called fiancé from the beginning saiid we want a baby then when I finally do get pregnant he says he doesn't want the child I also found out he is still married I was living in a house of lies I never knew he wants me to leave if I don't have an abortion I just have no place to go and I don't have enough money to move into my own place. I know he will also be responsible financially for this baby but do I really want some one like that to have any influence over this baby or have to raise the baby in an already messed up situation besides that I am not strong enough to do this on my own. I'm white he is indian which I am so sure would make for a beautiful little boy or girl. So I just wanted to know if there is a loving couple who is in the right position emotionally physically mentally and financially who would like to help me financially and see me thru this and adopt this baby growing inside me I was thinking abortion but I really feel that I should look at people that will be great parents and give the baby an operyuninty of life and the potential parents the gift of fulfillment. I just feel this is a baby not a pet you shouldn't have to ask can we keep it and I prayed so hard to be pregnant so I want this baby to have a family he or she is a gift My email if anyone wants to contact me is priscillastruwig@gmail.com. I am in South Africa

Good day, My husband and I have been trying for five years now to have a baby we have tried sperm donation as well as going through with inseminations and IVF (12) times with no success. Only to find out that I had endometriosis which caused me to have a hysterectomy along with removing the lining covering one of my kidneys, and a muscle to the uterus. We have since put in an application form to the CMR Middelburg, Mpumalanga for adoption, but they have turned me down saying that I am too old. They say that you are not to be older than 40 years of age, I turned 42 years a few days ago. I find this to be very unfair, they say that younger couples receive preference. Why I don't know, I just know that I could be a better mother to any child than some younger parents in today's world. Please help

Air Jordans were an instant hit thanks to a high flying rookie as well as one of the best marketing campaigns put together by Weiden and Kennedy. Jordan shoes have been the top selling signature basketball shoe that Nike has ever produced.? In addition to the signature Air Jordans, Jordan Brand has a major presence in the basketball and lifestyle market. Despite the fact that Michael Jordan retired from basketball in 2003 (for the 3rd time) Air Jordans are still the top selling models for many sneaker retailers. The legacy of Michael Jordan lives on with the release of new Jordans each year and re-releasing retro Air Jordans. Air Jordan 10 Retro

Hi. We've been struggling for over 5 years with infertility. We so badly want to have a child - to be honest we haven't decided on adoption - I've been so obsessed with having a child of our own flesh and blood that so far it hasn't even been an option, but now we may have to look at adopting as I have several fertility issues that we don't even know if assisted conception will be successful. We are both fulltime employed, non smokers, non drinkers. The child would be raised with Christian values. Would like white baby, gender doesn't matter. Johannesburg area. I so desperately want to be a mother it is all I can think about. I just want to know more about the whole process - how long it takes, what are the birth mother's rights, what are our rights, what are the costs and above all... it MUST BE LEGAL!

After much soul searching and prayer and 5 years of trying to have another child and many miscarriages, we are at last being screened as an adoptive family. Our son longs to have a brother or sister. If we can give your unborn baby or young child a home and a family and you can help God to answer our prayers. Please consider contacting Margate Child Welfare, KZN, there is an excellent social worker who can assist.

Hi I live in Durban and am married to a wonderful man and we both would love to adopt a little baby after being told that we would not be able to conceive naturally which we have tried for 7 years now including a few unsuccessful IVFs. We both love and adore children so much and would love to bring in a precious little one into a warm, caring and secure home. We would be willing to travel for our little bundle if need be. We pray that God answer everyone's prayers on this type of journey and grants ease on both ends of the spectrum for both the biological parents and adoptive as well. Ameen!

I stumbled across this website after another trp to the doctor, only to be told that my lady bits still aren't working.Ifelt so emotional as I read through these post when I recognised the same desperation my husband and Ifeel. We have only been married 4 months, but have been together for four years.we waited to get married till I finished my degree, tillwe could support the family we have always dreamed of. I am a teacher at a private school and he is in the hospitality industry.we have 2 dogs and a cat and have been waiting for God to bless us with a bundle of joy. People keep telling me to wait, that miracles do happen and that God will bless us when the time is right. Its a tough thing to wait for. But we keep hopeful. We spoke about adoption recently and a new spark of hope has been ignited in us. If there are girls who are looking for adoptive parents for the unborn or infant children, please get in touch with me.Iam still reading the literature and am not entirely sure what steps should be taken but rest assured, we would do anything to be able to become parents.

I am a 33 year old mom of 2 wonderful little boys. My husband and I can't have anymore kids ourselves, but we very much want a baby girl. I have always wanted a daughter. We are trying to adopt but cannot afford the last 10,000 dollars so far. We are not rich but we are full of faith and love. We are a happy family. Our food is great and our home is clean. If anyone knows of a way for us to find our money or knows of a baby that needs a mama, any race is lovely btw :), please let us know. God bless.

Hi I am a 30 yr old Caucasian woman and my husband is 34, we have been married for 3 yrs. We have been trying to fall pregnant for 2 yrs, unfortunately no success. The problem is with my husband and it's been a humbling experience, we are a Christian couple and if God has a plan for me to love and care for a child born from another then that would be great. If there is anyone who has considered adoption for their baby. Please could you email me so we could chat.

Hi Tina. We hope all is well with you. My husband and I are very interested in adopting your baby. We are married 9yrs now..soon to be 10yrs. We are both unable to have children and have been on an adoption waiting list since 2009. Even though we are financially secure, we just have so much love and time and attention to give and yes your baby will be raised in a gujarati home. So we ask that you please consider us. God bless you for making a brave and very emotionally difficult decision.

My husband and I are hoping to adopt. We are home study approved, licensed to foster to adopt. We are in our early thirties and Caucasian. We have been at this for years now and keep hitting walls. We can't have children and all I ever wanted was to be a mom and spoil some little miracle and give them a life and future that I always dreamed of giving this child I long to have. We recently were picked and after all was said and done and ready to go and I was told I would have a daughter, birth mother changed her mind. I understand her situation and anyone who is in this situation I understand the degree of hurt one feels. Anyone who is seriously looking for a loving devoted family that is truly committed to choosing adoption and lives in the US please please contact us. michellefejes at yahoo dot com

Hello out there, my Husband and I have not kids and have tried IVF and it's failed as well as AI twice. We are a white couple who own our own businesses and are financially secure. We would like to adopt a baby, it doesn't have to be white. To us we would really like to be parents, to love someone, give him/her a home, teach him/her values and give the baby lots of love and protection. I have tow little Yorkies whom I love dearly, they fill a void but not the same as a baby would. I'm in my late 20's and my hubby in his 30's we have been married for 4 years. If anyone feels giving their baby up for adoption is this option, please could you consider us. Please email me on Chanique at stratumb.co.za thank you xxx

What can I do,I have two kids who I cant support their father ran out of our lives,I couldn't finish my matric and I can't get a job I get frustrated and angry most of the time and end up beating them hard.I don't want to see them suffering that's why I want to give them up for adoption to parents that can look after them.*please help* I currently live in pretoria [Joanah, well done for realising there's a problem - you need to find help as soon as possible. Please try to get emotional support from a friend or family member, and contact SADAG Mental Health Line (8am-8pm) 011 262 6396 or Dr Reddy's Help Line (8am-8pm) on 0800 21 22 23. You can also try the Post-natal Depression Support Association of South Africa (PNDSA) on 082 882 0072 or 021 797 4498 or email info@pndsa.co.za. For adoption, your first step would be to call Adoption SA (http://www.adoption.org.za/) on 0800 864 658. They can put you in touch with social workers who will discuss your options. This is very urgent. All the best on your road to recovery - and again, well done for being a good mommy and wanting the best for your kids!! - Sophia]

Hi all, My husband and I have adopted our first son in September 2011. He was almost 6 months old, I can't believe he's turning 2 already in April this year. We are now in the waiting period for a little brother for him.The only way to adopt legally in South Africa is by going through a state or private adoption agency. We've used PROCARE, they are based in Pretoria and in Cape Town. They help you through the whole, sometimes emotional, process. They also guide pregnant moms who've choosen for adoption. Take the first step and contact them !! Good luck to all of you !!

Hi there...I'm 30weeks pregnant with twins..so far it looks like 2 girls. Unfortunately I've realized that I will not be able to give them the financial support, that is needed to make sure they have a good and happy life..I believe that God has bestoved this blessing on me, to give someone the gift of a child..I'm my case 2 of them. I have 2 boys already, and to be a single mother of 4 kids, is a selfish thing to do...

My family and I are planning on adopting a sibling group through the U.S. foster system, but have recently decided we might want to also adopt a baby from South Africa. We would like to have the baby in as little time as possible, and we know most adoptions are very lengthy. We know Morrocco is 6-8 months to adopt a baby, what about South Africa? Thank you!

Ons het n seuntjie aangeneem via n oop aanneming aangesien ons die ouers geken het. Dit was n lang en moeilike pad omdat die mamma dinge moeilik probeer maak het. Maar die Here weet wat Hy vir boetie wil he en ons het na n jaar en paar maande die saak gewen! Die aanneming is geregistreer en sy name klaar verander! Mammas kan gerus met my chat oor aanneming as hul wil!

We adopted a little boy on 23/04/2009 , he was born 01/01/2009. I have laways considered myself a strong woman , but after only one round of insemination and one IVF , I could not see myself doing it again.The emotional strength that it takes ........... Now our son is going on 3 and beautiful , happy and healthy. He's had his challenges , developmentally and now a speech delay , but we have faith that Allah(God) has planned his course and plotted his road to triumph and success. We would not change him for the world , he's ours in every corner of our hearts , he take us to our "happy place" every night coming home from work and seeing his beautiful little face , with those cute spectacles, oooooooh , that's our son! My husband had reservations with adoption and said that he could not promise that he would love this little boy as much as he would his own , well it took our son less than 24 hours to win his dad over , now they are totally besotted with each other. He starts creche in Janauary 2012 and thinking about a sister for him to play with soon. I would recommend adopting a child to anyone , they fill that little space in your heart , you know , that space that longs for the touch of little chubby fingers.

Hi there, Something you might consider including in an article on adoption is information on things like: - claiming UIF if you adopt a baby (I only found out I could too late) - right to maternity benefits if you adopt a baby - how medical aid works for an adopted child (and the Discovery Vitality Benefits for Adopted Babies - again I found out too late I qualified for these benefits) There is plenty information on the screening processes etc on the internet. But what benefits etc. you qualify for are not mentioned at all. Regards, Chantalle

My husband and I chose to adopt our little girl and it was the best decision we ever made. She has taken over our world and holds a very special place in both our hearts. It was difficult for our families at first to accept that we had chosen to adopt, however, once they met her they all love her to bits (never had so many visits from family as this year ;)). We read up a lot to prepare for the process and found books to educate our parents on the process too. We were fortunate to meet the birth mother and spend time with her. And the day she placed my baby in my arms, was definitely one of the happiest days of my life. Our daughter has been in our care since she was four hours old and we have not looked back since - people keep telling me she looks just like me ... I just keep quiet and smile to myself :) The screening process is tough and sometimes feels like an invasion into your privacy ... However, sometimes, I just wish everyone had to experience that before having children. There are so many children out there who are born into circaumstances that are not acceptable ... I work with a children's home and see the damage that is done to children who are born to parents who are not able to cope with caring for them.

I adopted a baby in 2010, she was 5 months at the time I brought her home. It took me years to finally start the process due to all the bureaucracy and red tape in the system. I wanted to do it through a private agency, but later decided against it and did it through the Jhb Welfare Services. As a single parent (widowed) and an 18 year old daughter, I thought I would not be considered, that the process would take even longer and frustrate me more, but to my surprise I was not discriminated against due to my marital status. I went through the motions, all the processes, felt despondent at times, but I never gave up. The whole process amazingly took 7 months, something I did not expect. On the day when I met my angel for the first time, I was told that if I don't want the baby, they would look for another baby. That really hurt me so much, because I felt it would be so unfair towards the baby and saw it as double rejection. I prayed alot about this and when I got the call to meet my baby, I was convinced that she was the baby God blessed me with. She is almost 20 months and an absolute joy! I started believing in the system and due to my experience, a few friends decided to follow because they could see the positive results.

Alicia, if you want to give a child a home, why is the skin colour an issue? Surely God wants all children looked after & raised in a loving family, not just the elusive white baby? The bible talks about children being a blessing from the Lord, not just white children.

Me and my husband are in the process of being screened as adoptive parents. We firmly believe that it takes an extremely good mother to give her child up for adoption. Clearly she shows an inner strength which very little of us have. It takes someone who really cares deeply about their child’s welfare to acknowledge that they cannot give the baby whatever is needed and provide that little treasure with the ground stones of growing up at a family that can do so. We sincerely believe that parent ship is a privilege that GOD will never deny anyone especially when the intended parents have pure motives for the child in their care. Although HE does not allow all of us to have one of our own I believe that it is part of HIS bigger plan. God knew that there will be helpless children in need and therefore had to keep some of HIS special children (adoptive parents), who HE knew will be capable to excel in taking care of these little ones. Although the stats are made clear to us and we understand the limitations of adopting a white baby especially when regarding the fact that I already do have two (nearly grown up 15 & 18) children from her previous marriage I believe that GOD will not take the chance away from my husband to have someone calling him daddy. He so dearly deserves to be called daddy. He will most definitely be the best daddy this world has ever seen. He is an extremely kind, generous, GOD Loving and dependable person who lived his life to serve GOD. Why would GOD not give him this? He will be any child's dream father. To make this worse we do not have thousands and thousands to spend on "buying" the favour of the birth mother. We do have a stable income and the ability to live comfortably but we do not have banks full of spare cash that waits to be used. I've read lot of messages from adoptive parents clearly stating that those with the most money get chosen first. In actual fact I believe that we are very settled and I know from taking care of my sister's baby during a difficult time she experienced that I now am much more relaxed and self confident in looking after a baby. The fact that I also do know what it is to have a child of your own are in actual fact making me believe that the baby we adopt should grow up with the truth. I will ensure to keep the birth mom updated if this is what she wants and also give her details to her biological child on a suitable age in order to prevent the placing of newspaper/huisgenoot articles in order to find each other. We fully believe that the birth mother suffered enough by giving up her baby and we will definitely consider her wishes for the babies future (within the law off cause and not to the expense of the little one) In our house there will definitely be love and cherishing in more than triplicate as the older brother and sister are as excited as us and will definitely spoil their little brother or sister rotten If GOD has a child booked for us no stats or human predictions will stop HIM from delivering that child to us. GOD surely knows that we will be wonderful parents who will be able to provide in all the needs of such little one in need. With constant love and attention any child can have a perfectly healthy emotional and physical childhood. In the end the main ingredients for any child to flourish are LOVE, discipline, Security and routine. We have been through the school of life. We are homely with no destructive habits and will be able to provide any child with all the above and a good measure of stability. We are secure in our knowledge of being able to bring up a little one to the satisfaction of any onlooker but most important to the approval of GOD. It does however sometimes get to us to know that the waiting list for white babies is extremely long and that chances are very slim. We already have all baby equipment and clothing for up to 2 years and the cot in our room ready this is how big our faith is but in the end we are human and then we take a dip of worry and doubt. The next day we get up again and start all over. Believing and praying. This is a roller coaster ride but believe me the day we get that little baby all the hardship will be forgotten immediately and joy will overflow the rest of our life’s. I would like to hear from: Other adoptive parents - maybe this will give me a bit of hope to hear your stories Mothers that gave up their babies or intends to do so - we've been told that most birth parents wants their child to be with a couple with no other children and that chances are that we will never be picked. In our case however our children is independent and soon to be out of the house going on with their own futures (don't worry we are still under 40. I also had my first child at young age) Your baby will therefore be even more treasured. We no longer go out to parties and will never leave the baby with baby sitters etc whilst younger couples are still very active with their own needs. I guess what I actually want to hear from you is if you would have considered us as potential parents for your child?

Children placed for adoption are NOT 'unwanted children'. Birthmothers WANT to parent their children. But, usually they are not able to provide a safe and stable home due to financial reasons. Therefore, they make an adoption plan to provide a better future to their child with another family. Ayone that calls these children UNWANTED does not understand adoption! It is a wrong, ignorant and hurtful comment. 'Unwanted children' are put in dumpsters or are killed through abortion - 'wanted children' are placed in loving homes through adoption.

What will happen to the baby during the 60 days window/wating period. Does the baby stay with the adoptive parents after the birth mother give birth and her consent?

What do you feel the guiltiest about as mom?

I feel I don't spend enough quality time with my kids.
I shout at them.
I don't listen to them attentively and am always distracted.
I probably should have breastfed them for longer.
I'm not able to give them more material things.
I'm not organised with scrap books and albums and memory boxes.
My kids are overweight.
My kids watch too much TV.
I feel guilty for sometimes wishing I could just go away and be by myself.
Someone else is looking after my kids while I work.
I don't feel guilty!
