Group Description

ADOPT-CHINA-UK Welcome to our group! Our group provides support and information for families who are in the process of adopting or have adopted Chinese children from the People's Republic of China, and who live in the UK , or are adopting via the UK process.

We welcome lively discussion, but we ask members to respect and value the fact that we all may have different views on the adoption process - and different views on parenting our children. Our discussion ranges over pre and post adoption issues. Re-posting material from our discussions breaches the privacy of our group. Instead, please suggest that your contact join us if their profile fits that of our membership criteria.

Our group is open to members who are in the process of or have adopted from China. To be eligible for membership, applicants need minimally to have been accepted on to the Homestudy process to adopt from China. If you decide to withdraw from the China adoption process we ask that you inform the Moderators of your decision.

If you are simply considering adoption from China, contact Children Adopted from China (http://www.cach.org.uk),OASIS (http://www.adoptionoverseas.org/)or the Intercountry Adoption Centre (http://www.icacentre.org.uk)for initial information. The official UK government publication with the regulations for adopting from China can be found at http://www.dcsf.gov.uk/intercountryadoption/countries.shtml#china

**Opinions on legal/procedural matters expressed on list are not necessarily the same as those held by the Owners/Moderators of Adopt-China-UK. Members are strongly advised to adhere to best practice as laid down by DfES, DCSF, CCAA, and other legally authoritative organizations**
