Meeting with Australian Government on adoption.
On Monday 22 June, a group of 13 intercountry adoptees from every state of Australia, representing 6 different countries of origin, met with the Department of Social Services (DSS) and the Attorney General’s Dept (AGD).
We covered a broad set of issues but all of which largely culminate in showing our need for better, more comprehensive, and accessible Pre & Post adoption supports in Australia and our sending countries.
Attached is our summary handout that was provided to DSS & AGD.
We await feedback on our recommendations.
