Can a woman who has metatastic cancer in remission adopt?
Yes, people who are in remission from cancer can sometimes adopt, but many agencies forbid it. The IAC allows cancer survivors and those in remission to adopt if they have a prognosis of a normal life expectancy. We require a letter from your doctor explaining your diagnosis and prognosis.
We also require all adoptive parents to disclose any cancer history to a birthparent before placement. This disclosure is usually done during the match meeting.
