International Adoption Survey

adoptionAdoption studies come across my desk from time to time.  This one looks to be legitimate, and possibly helpful to those coming after us.  It’s a study at Tufts University encouraging the sharing of personal experiences with intercountry adoption— the good, the bad, and the ugly, one could say.  The research covers both those who have completed adoptions and those who are still in-process.  It’s anonymous and takes about 30 minutes, depending on how detailed you wish to be.  Here’s the info:

In conjunction with the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute (EBDI), we are conducting a survey of adoptive parents about their experiences adopting a child from another country. As you may know, the Hague Adoption Convention on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Convention) was created to improve the experiences for children who are in need of permanency. The results of this survey will inform a paper on the impact of the Hague Convention on intercountry adoption practices and policies.

This paper will make recommendations about how to improve intercountry adoption practices and policies for children and Adoption2families. We are recruiting adoptive parents who adopted a child after 1982 to take the survey. This survey presents an opportunity for adoptive parents to draw on their experiences to provide feedback/information about adoption practices and policies. We hope to have parents in countries around the world who read English and have adopted a child from another country participate in this survey.

Please also share this link with other parents whom you know adopted a child from another country. We welcome the feedback from parents in countries around the world who are able to take the survey in English.
