Yip Hon Weng on Adoption of Children Bill

08:05 Min
Will all proposed changes to child adoption laws apply to foreign adoptees where the adoptive family is based in Singapore? What are some exceptional circumstances that might permit adoption by a person who has been convicted of serious crimes? Would such restrictions also apply to immediate family members of adoptive parents who would also live with or spend a lot of time with the child? These were some questions posed by MP Yip Hon Weng in Parliament on Monday (May 9). Mr Yip also raised the prospect of an adopted child being unable to get along with his or her new siblings or other family members. He suggested that the adoption process include training or conversations with the adopting parents and their families to ensure that all are ready.
