Our paperwork was delayed because our adoption agency “forgot” to ask us for CRB checks from Spain!!!!! This is now underway and our dossier sits in the DCFS waiting for all this new paperwork to be completed, because it has all taken so long our medicals have gone out of date and need doing again, more time to wait around.
Our yearly review is now due and the costs for this have gone up 350% in last year’s prices, as we are ICA adopters we just have to roll over and hand the money without any guarantess of becoming parents.
The whole adoption system in the UK for ICA adopters is a disgrace and it is about time parents were treated with some respect and sympathy where problems arise, there are many walls along this long and bumpy road and all adoptive parents should get support from their respective adoption agencies.
I hope one day this journey will end with joy and wonder.
