Scores of international couples brave all the strict issues involved in the adoption processes that sometimes drag on for more than three years. This is so even with the high numbers of orphaned children, or those abandoned, tortured and those left to languish in foster care homes and orphanages.
Well, with good luck many well-wishers or couples manage to secure their preferred kid’s adoption safely after the long struggle and then go ahead to give these children a better life style.
There are people who adopt children from their countries but the common cases are of those privileged people from developed countries who adopt from developing countries especially from eastern parts of Europe, Africa and some poor parts of Asia.
This means that it is rare that those seeking adoption use the same language of communication as the one used in the country where the child to be adopted is. This becomes crucial since the adoption process is a vital one that also involves legal issues and thus communication has to be very effective.
How to effectively communicate during the adoption process
It is strongly advised that during delicate issues like adoption, one should hire translation services for effective communication and smooth running of the entire process.
The adoption process involves official documents like birth certificates that ought to be certified or translated and any slight mistake in these documents could lead to the painful prolonging of the adoption process, or even to its cancellation.
Problems that occur during the adoption process due to Language barrier
Misunderstandings between the adoptive or would be adoptive parents and the biological parents of the child or children in question. Such cases come up, usually later in life yet the problem could have been dealt with right from the beginning if only there was effective communication with the help of translators or interpreters.
Mistakes with information from official documents that may be birth certificates, names of the biological parents of the child in question or digits of the age or birth date.
How to solve adoption process problems
Hire interpreters who speak the child’s biological parents’ k3 language so as for both sides to be perfectly clear about all the issues and stages involved. There was an instance of a child adopted from Africa by Americans that got bitter when the child was adopted and taken to live in the USA, yet the biological parents thought these were just sponsors of their child’s education and so wanted their child back yet the child too did not want to return after experiencing the good life.
