thanks for the reply,
i naturally have to dig through the 33 pages but after a brief scan through I cannot find anythingthat clearly relates to my daughters position unless the position is the same for a UK person living in UK as it is for a UK citizen working as a non resident. Also i cannot find Ethiopia on the list of countries that are accepted as legal adoptions by the UK, does this mean that an Ethiopian adoption legalised in Ethiopia is not recognised in the UK.
I get the feeling fron reading through what I have that it is wise to apply for approval and acceptance in the UK prior to the adoption is a requirement if UK citizenship is required for the child. Is this the case?
