There must be a huge backlog. Also, because the entire country is transitioning to the "Real ID" by 2020, kids like mine must bring copious vital records, including adoption decree etc etc to the DMV in order for their kids to get their learners permits & drivers license.
I have never adopted and had no idea of all the red tape in our own country.
In some countries (like Korea), the child comes here still a citizen of that country and the adoption takes place here.
don't think that's true regarding retaining of South Korean citizenship. If a child is adopted in South Korea, my understanding is their law automatically removes South Korean citizenship.
You are incorrect, @cobrat. Some adoptions are completed overseas, some are not.
