The bureaucracy is prohibitive. We live in Canada. We just spent 3 long years adopting a sibling to one of our adopted children; it was an international adoption. Of course, it is complicated, but governments, courts and paperwork is what took so long. Obviously, there is work to do to maintain some of the safety precautions necessary to ensure the children are safe, but get rid of all the unnecessary work parents have to do to create or expand their families.
