DVD: The Waiting City

A film about inter-country adoption.

Although I am a big advocate for local adoption, I understand and realise how big the impact of inter-country adoption plays with many couples within Australia wishing to become parents through adoption.
This movie portrays the complications and heartache of a couple who travel overseas to meet and bring home the baby they have been planning and waiting over two years to legally adopt.  They travel to India and are faced with many obstacles; some personal, some out of thier control.  I felt the movie moved a little slow and could have shown more insight into the processes of adoption.  In saying this, it was a moving film and well worth watching for anyone interested in adoption generally. The outcome came as a surprise; one all couples going through the inter-country process should not get disheartened by.
