How long does it take to adopt?

Answer

There is no specific period of time; every adoption is unique and the time it takes to complete will depend on several issues. For example, if you want to adopt a white or Indian child it will take longer as there are less of these children available for adoption. If you want to adopt a black child the waiting period may be shorter due to the fact that there are many children requiring placement. You should discuss the time frames with your social worker, but remember that this is a life-changing event that cannot be rushed.
