Why does it take a lot of years to be approved as adoptive parents in Denmark?
Well, we as a nation want to make sure that parents are taught what kind of difficulties they could face. Parents who want to adopt are tested and interviewed a number of times.
When I searched of news related to the Sofia Roberts case and the problem bringing together children and adopted children I found that while they also interview and test adoptive parents in the United States it is rather easy to dump the child off with new adoptive parents who are not tested to the same extend as the original adoptive parents.
A teenage girl ended up in a family where the social service had removed children and where she was to sleep in the same bed as her new “parents”. I find it rather bizarre and I do think that such a family should be the center of a massive investigation. I have children of my own and they do sleep in their own bed and have done so since age one. OK. We have been on holiday and have slept right next to each other in a tent but then we didn’t share sleeping bags.
I don’t understand such a system. Can anyone be helpful explaining to me how it is allowed.
