Ban ALL Independent Adoptions!: A Model for the U.S. and the World!

Finland set to ban independent adoptions

A Finnish justice ministry working group proposed Friday that the government should propose legislation to ban independent cross-border adoptions and introduce adoption age limits.

Under current legislation international adoptions are subject to permits granted by the Board of Inter-Country Adoption Affairs, a health and social affairs ministry body, but a number of loopholes mean that independent adoptions have been possible.

Most people wishing to adopt from abroad have however gone through the board, with up to 20 independent adoptions a year.

The working group also proposed that all adoptions, including those within the country, would have to be cleared by the board.

The working group wants a minimum age of 25 and a maximum of 50 for adopting parents as well as minimum and maximum age differences of 18 and 42 years, respectively, between adopting parents and the adopted child.
