I agree with Sad Panda. The Nova Scotia process is even worse than the other provinces. The process for the mixed race children seems to promote the racism above placing children in loving caring homes. The decision makers do not appear to be able to evaluate all the attributes of the applicants. This combined with the Sad Panda comments that are relevant makes the NS process very horrific. #1

I wish that the social services of Canada, all its provinces, and territories would make children's profiles more accessible and keep them updated. Pictures would also be a good idea. Only Alberta's Wednesday's children and the 22 kids on the Canada's waitlist have pictures. Meanwhile BC's profiles are sometimes half a decade behind the children's actual age. The US has updated profiles for a lot of their children with pictures and videos - heck even China has profiles of children for adoption with pictures. Our social services are supposed to be superior to theirs'. I guess not in regard to making the children's info more accessible to Canadians without going to social services - during the emotional and thoughtful process before the adoption process begins. #2
