Research suggests that adequate preparation and having realistic expectations of an adoption are identified as significant family factors influencing the success of adoptions. Research also suggests that families who utilise particular parenting strategies and attitudes, report better outcomes with children. The type and degree of support received by the adoptive family in the form of pre and post placement services and broader community and family support are also key predictors of success.
We have developed an APP that seeks to make applicants for intercountry adoption aware of the support that is available to them and pointing them to key information to assist them in their preparation in a condensed, usable format.
Some of the key areas of details provided in the APP are how to access support networks, join forums, watch videos by specialists in the field, follow our blog. There is also information on which books would be good to read and there is the ability to request to borrow the book from our library. There is also information on new and significant developments in the field.
Our APP is available for both Android and iOS by clicking the pictures below. For Android devices, click the Google Play link, for Apple, click the App Store link.
We hope you enjoy the information contained in the APP and would appreciate any constructive feedback on what information to add in future updates.
