Your pre adoption paperwork includes a contract for post placement reports. This is an important part of the adoption process. Post placement reports verify the child(ren)’s safety. These show that the children are living, breathing, and are healthy here in Canada. The reports are always accompanied by lots of photos.
Honoring the agreements you signed when you applied to adopt are paramount. Post Placement Reporting is NOT optional.
Most countries require that a social worker complete some of the post placement reports. This is beneficial for the family. Many countries require the family to continue sending reports on their own after the social worker is no longer involved, possibly until the child is 18 years old. CAFAC is the medium by which these are sent to the country, so we will be in contact for many years to come.
