Our goal as an orphanage is to create a home for the children, similar to being adopted. Most of our children are with us from birth, and regard our caregivers as their ‘mothers’. To separate the older kids from our caregivers would therefore be a traumatic experience we would rather avoid.
That is why we prefer to only have the young babies be adopted.
This is possible, but it is not easy!
To adopt, there are specific rules set by the government.
These can be found on the website Yayasan Sayap ibu, the official adoption arphanage in Jakarta:
