How to become an international adoption social worker/Case worker?

I want to become an international adoption social worker or case manager, but i don't know where to start. I want to build profiles of children and families, and i want to find families for children.

Assuming you live in the USA, then you need to have a college degree in some type of human services field such as social work or psychology. In California, where I live, with a BA in a human services field, you can be a caseworker in a county agency (CPS/foster care). You can't do adoption homestudies or match children and families with having a Master's Degree in a human services field with an MSW (Master's in Social Work) preferred. To work for private agencies who do international adoption, usually need Master's Degree and in some cases, you need to be licensed (LMFT or LMFC). So if you don't have a degree - work on that. Look to volunteer or get an entry level job working with children in a group home or foster home type setting. If you have your degree, then look at entry level jobs with your local state or county. Adoption jobs, at least in my county, are highly coveted. Most people start in other positions and transfer into adoptions once there is an opening. Good luck to you!

How to bond an adopted kid with the established kid?

We have a 12 year old son, and we adopted a 15 year old girl. Are there any bond strengthening games/techniques that anyone knows of? They both will try anything but are kind of shy torwards eachother. We all want this to be a complete family.

Try some new activities that neither of them have experienced before (creates a level playing field where neither will feel inferior). Such as pottery, horseback riding, camping, etc. Also its good to find fun activities that require them to work together as a team - such as canoeing or team orientated video games. Most importantly, pay attention to how they interact with each other and when you see that they are shy or quiet, encourage some conversation by asking a random question - like what's your favourite movie of all time, what's the worst one you've ever seen etc. Things that both children will have an opinion on to help them get to know each other.

How to terminate parental rights and get adoption finalized?

My son's father hasn't been in his life for well over a year and hasn't paid child support since my son was one years old. So basically he has abandoned him. If I can get him to sign over his rights how can I do it myself? Also needing to know how to get an adoption going for my current husband for him to adopt my son.

You need to find out what constitutes abandonment in your state. Different states have different definition. Some say the parent has to be out of the child's life, with no contact or maintenance for a minimum of a year, some say 3 years. So google the name of your state and abandonment. With that said, you can not do it yourself. You will have to get a lawyer. Having the biological father's rights terminated due to abandonment has to be done by the court. Even if you got him to sign a piece of paper that says "I give up my rights" the court will not accept that because they don't know if it was done under duress. So, talk to a family law attorney. If you can not afford an attorney, go to your county's legal aid and see if they will handle the case. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don't. It really depends on their case load and budget.

How to Adopt and Chances of experiencing a sucessful adoption?

I'm still in highschool, I just want to know the details now.

Many African countries offer fairly painless (as far as adoptions go) adoptions; Ethiopia is an example. Most countries require that you are at least 25 and some require that you are 30 (China). You will have mounds of paperwork and home studies, but it's not all that bad from what I understand.
