Post Placement Report
Your agency may provide you with more specific guidelines about what it expects in the post placement report. Some agencies/regions require that a social worker complete the reports during the initial time home; these official reports might also be required by your state for readoption. You may be required to have them notarized, apostilled and translated. Below are some suggestions for areas that can be addressed.
You may be expected to submit one at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year, 1.5 years, 2 years, 2.5 years, 3 years, or some combination of these times, usually adding up to 6-7 within 3 years. You may also be required to submit one yearly, with pictures, until the age of majority. The US Embassy in Almaty states that the reports are to be done yearly until the child is 18, they must be done by a licensed social worker or adoption agency, and sent to the Kazakhstan Embassy/Consulate, with a copy sent to the MOE. I have a document containing the local Departments of Education addresses for you to download, from February 2007.
POST-PLACEMENT REPORT DATED DD/MM/YYYY (may also be asked to include report number, time after adoption)
Child's Name at Birth
INTEGRATION INTO FAMILY
Other categories you might want to consider: heritage and cultural education, trips, educational experiences, contact with other international/Kazakhstan adoptees. You might also want to add photocopies of medical, therapy, and/or school reports.
I highly recommend that you make at least one copy of each post-placement report for your records. That way you can send it again to your agency if it gets lost. I also recommend that you (or your social worker) send the report with delivery confirmation to provide proof that it was sent.
I do have a sample report available for download.
