There are many things about military life that are difficult to deal with but having children shouldn’t be one of them.
I was reading this story in the Ottawa Citizen about military family who wishes to adopt a child from a foreign country, in this case Haiti.
Because both he and she were born to Canadian parents but OUTSIDE of Canada (Canadian Forces Base in Lahr, Germany) they are not fully Canadian citizens and therefore are having a great deal of difficulty adopting a child from a foreign country.
I don’t pretend to understand the Citizen Act or Immigration but I do understand that children of members of the Canadian Forces, regardless of where they are born, should have full Canadian citizenship.
Read the full story and let me know what you think in the comments.
