What is the whole process of adopting a child from somewhere in Africa?

Question by Tilly!: What is the whole process of adopting a child from somewhere in Africa?
Well, just to get this across the table, I am not adopting, but my family wants to adopt. My dad has already adopted from Mexico, my brother, who is now 19. I am his biological child… Anyway, I’ve asked him about the process, but he is quite…impatient and it’s difficult to extract info from him about this. All I can get out of him is that they always ask for more money. We live in Canada, and he is still married. Can you list the general things we would have to go through to adopt? By the way, if this is relevant, we all are fluent in Portuguese, French, and of course English, haha. Thanks all, please don’t give me stupid answers. I’m asking for info, not for rants or opinions (unless I would be interested). Time is not a problem, I know it will potentially take years for this to happen!

Go to the first house on the left, and bag the first boy/girl (depending on which one you want) you see.

  1. 1)Easiest way is to join one of those Jeebus freaks christian “charities”,….go to Africa (and by that I meant Sub-Saharan).

    2)lure any lone wandering starvin Marvin with the promise of one gram cracker and a photograph of a tomato (shoving the bible up the skinny’s a$ s should be held off for a bit later),…. pay the parents (if you can find them laying around somewhere under separate Bunyan trees) a fortune of exactly 6 cents and a brochure or take away menu of Denny’s or IHOP (just so that they too can indulge).

    3) Scurry back to Podunk Alabama (your family will have to surrender their Canadian dream…it was one of the conditions with which they agreed to comply when they joined the Jeebus freaks)..and then lobby whatever diseased bastard is sitting on the throne in washington to massmurder some 3rd world country (your Christian charity would probably prefer that your family lobbied to bomb and mass murder some mooslim country).

    4) You can always ask for help from other loving Christian freaks such as Benny Hinn, Pat Robertson, Falwell, Hagee….pretty much anything which sports a crucifix hanging on the building-front with a skinny a$ s bearded guy sculpted into the wood or stone with Europoid features (cuz Jesus was either Italian, German, a Spaniard, or from Texas).

    5) Then sit back and enjoy, knowing that Jeebus loves you, and you helped make the world a better place. On top of that, you even lobbied to shower mass murdering Divine retribution ( i.e. Red White and Blue baby!!!, + “I support our troops” golden ribbon sticker) on some heathens and devil worshipers. But its for their own good…..cuz it says so in the Bible.

    ….6) oh…and of course because of your generosity, there is one less skinny in Africa. Not to mention that IHOP menu will keep Marvin’s parents very happy. They may be even able to muster enough dynes of effort to make love and make another Marvin.

    Go ahead, you can now regale and torture the rest of us by sporting Marvin every single fkin night on TBN.

    Goodluck.

  2. Well, you would first have to be more specific. Africa is an entire continent with 54 countries in it. Just like any other continent, these countries all have different rules and regulations…even pertaining to adopting. So, it is hard to be specific. But, generally what you would have to do whenever adopting a child internationally(this is a VERY broad generalization) is fill out paperwork, wait to be paired with a child or children…often times they’ll send you pictures once you’ve agreed on the child. You’ll have to undergo home checks, etc. etc. Pay a lot of money for plane tickets, VISA, etc., etc. Go to whatever country for however long that country requires(ranges anywhere from 2 days to several months) and then usually you’ll have to go to court to have the adoption finalized. Some countries require more than one visit. Some countries require you to be of a specific religion…it all depends on what country you choose…Some countries will even require that you become a legal citizen of that country first, so, the country you choose is pretty important…

  3. If it’s not worth doing his own homework to get a kid, your daddy doesn’t need one.

    Africa is a continent, not a country. There are 47 countries in Africa (53 if you count the islands). Ergo, Dad would need to educate himself rather a lot about rather a lot of very different countries with different cultures and attitudes before he could even begin to say where in Africa he thinks he would like to adopt from.
