Our Pre-Adoption medical record service was designed to be an educational and support program for adoptive parents.
Our goal is to educate adoptive parents using the sometimes limited medical information available about their child.
It is this knowledge that empowers adoptive parents them to make an educated decision, and not just take a leap of faith. We never tell families which child to adopt and we do not pick out children.
After speaking with Adoption Agency Directors, I came to the conclusion that with the 2007 Hague accreditation mandates and Department of State regulations many agencies have been struggling with the educational training of the accreditation process. Some directors have informed me that they have tried to create adoption educational manuals for parents to read, others want to conduct group classes in their agencies, while others leave it up to the parents to become educated, and just provide a list of references and reading material.
The most successful post-adoption cases have consistently been the ones where the adoptive parents were properly educated with regards to the medical possibilities that could be associated with their adopted child.
Because of this formal education, when a problem did arise, they were able to recognize it and bring it to the attention of their pediatrician before it was too advanced.
Parents that expect to adopt a child and immediately place him in GAP clothing and anticipate him to function in our society without difficulties and a great deal of effort on their behalf are in for a rude awakening.
If you as a parent do not have the knowledge to identify when your child is having a problem, you will not be able to help him.
