Does anybody know how difficult it would be to adopt from Germany? I've always wanted to adopt, I'm adopted as is one of my adopted parents, so I'd like to adopt if I can. That being said, I had a dream where I adopted twins from Germany, I'm just wondering if anybody knows how diffiuclt it owuld be to adopt even one child from Germany. I can't seem to find any information about it. Knowing me it's probably rigth in front of me and I'm overlooking it.

Germany

There is alot of information about adopting from Germany.

I dont for-see it being a very hard place to adopt from. Just as hard as all of the other places. (No matter where you adopt, its never easy)

I realize it's never easy, I didn't mean to make it sound like it was. Thank yo for the information! Like I said, it's probably right in front of me and I'm just missing it.

Germany typically does not do international adoption. You rarely find first world countries that do. There were less than 10 IR-3/4s issued for germany in the last 5 years which means only 1-2 kids are being adopted from Germany every year. These are probably private family adoptions.
Sorry, but it doesn't look hopeful.

Well, based on the information that snicole90 gave me I'm not even old enough to adopt from Germany. So even though there aren't many international adoptions from Germany right now, things can change. I won't be 25 for a few more years maybe things will change in that time.

Also Germany is part of the Hague Adoption Convention. So that will make it easier for you.

I wish you all the best, I would contact an adoption agency. See if you can start the paper work before you turn 25. That way the day you turn 25 you can start getting referrals. (If that is your choice)
