PEAR conducted a survey of Ethiopia adoptive parents and prospective adoptive parents from March 16, 2010 to April 16, 2010. The purpose of the survey was to identify possible areas of unethical practice and procedure in Ethiopian adoptions. PEAR’s intent in doing this was to use the data to recommend changes in the adoption process that will eliminate ethical concerns and protect the members of the adoption triad.
PEAR thanks the respondents for providing process details so we can appropriately pinpoint areas for recommending improvements to the process. Numerous suggestions about the overall process, agency conduct, birthfamily contact and adoptive parent preparation are being compiled into recommendations that will be available to the public and appropriate authorities in Mid-October 2010.
Ethics, Transparency, Support
