TUFTS University in conjunction with the Even B. Donaldson Adoption Institute is looking for your help.
Tufts University in conjunction with the Even B. Donaldson Adoption Institute are looking for parents who have adopted a child from another country after 1982 to assist as they conduct a survey of adoptive parents about their experiences adopting a child from another country.
The Hague Adoption Convention on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption (Hague Convention) was created to improve the experiences for children who are in need of permanency. The results of this survey will inform a paper on the impact of the Hague Convention on intercountry adoption practices and policies. This paper will make recommendations about how to improve intercountry adoption practices and policies for children and families. This survey presents an opportunity for adoptive parents to draw on their experiences to provide feedback/information about adoption practices and policies.
They hope to have parents in countries around the world who read English and have adopted a child from another country participate in this survey. To access the survey, please use the following link for adoptive parents: https://tufts.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0JOrVXtfy4zox6c . Please also share this link with other parents whom you know adopted a child from another country. They also welcome the feedback from parents in countries around the world who are able to take the survey in English. For information about this survey, please contact Ellen Pinderhughes with TUFTS University at Ellen.email@example.com.
