Adoptions have been back in the news quite a lot lately with the Russian Government's recent decision to stop their children being adopted by US parents. It stemmed from a rather ill thought out decision by one American woman to 'send back' an apparently unruly child she had adopted but had proved too difficult for her to handle. The adoption process is a difficult one at the best of times and, to have the best chance of success, it makes sense to have all the information you need at your fingertips. TheAdoptionApp is a comprehensive guide to the international and domestic adoption process that was previously only available for iPhone. Now this highly regarded knowledge tool is available for Android and helps individuals and couples understand and navigate the whole adoption process.
Do you know the difference between a 'Hague' and a 'non-Hague' adoption agreement is? If you dont, and you are thinking about adoption from another country, you had better start doing a bit of research now. TheAdoptionApp is a home study guide to help individuals and couples navigate the complete adoption process while on the go. Its a mobile app that will guide you through the many steps and tasks that need to be completed before your domestic or international adoption is approved. It gives detailed information on the home study, clearances, course requirements, state, federal and international documentation needed and other household considerations in a quick and easy checklist. The app has been described as one-part information and one part 'hand-holding' through the steps of the complicated adoption process. It answers most of the questions that you would ever think about asking, is a very good knowledge database and eliminates some of the mountains of paperwork required. It's the sort of information and resource guide that you would hope that any adoption agency would supply, but don't. It also includes example forms (very useful for overseas adoptions so you get to know what an immigration form looks like,) essential home study reading lists and a checklist of things to do. Previously only available for iPhone, this Android version was built using HTML5 though it does include some brand new coding that has only just been added to HTML5. Because of this, the app is compatible with specific browsers on your Android mobile device. It will work on all devices but the functionality of some features might be a little impaired - especially on older devices. You can check out the FAQ page to see if your version is up to the task. The app features the same functionality as the iPhone version and includes the connect feature, tasks and checklists, links to resources and information on both international and domestic adoptions. l
It's no surprise that TheAdoptionApp was created by an adoptive mom who found the whole adoption process difficult and confusing. She decided to build her own organizer and guide for her mobile to help others who might find themselves in the same boat that she was. It has been given the thumbs up by many adoption agencies who like its organizational abilities and the fact that it cuts out some of the paperwork that you have to keep track of. TheAdoptionApp is a very helpful app with lots of information for those thinking of adoption or foster care from home or abroad.
