Our adoptions team assists adoptive parents in understanding the adoption process and takes them through the screening, training, and matching to a child that has been either abandoned or consented for adoption.
Children are placed with adoptive parents in South Africa, Belgium and Finland as part of our partnership with Spence-Chapin. Children with special needs are placed with parents in the USA.
Many birth mothers are counseled on the choices available to them, and we often help them communicate with their own families before they make a final decision as to whether or not to allow their children to be given up for adoption. Destitute mothers are also referred to our Princess Alice Adoption Home where they receive accommodation, skills training, and counseling during their pregnancies.
We are active members of the National Adoption Coalition and liaise with all the other adoption homes and centres in South Africa.
