For UAE expats, adopting child from abroad can be swifter than at home

Adopting while living in the UAE is swift and accessible say expatriates who have adopted children from different locations in the world while residing here.

DUBAI // Adopting a child from another country is quicker and easier when done from the UAE, expatriate couples say.

Adoption is not officially recognised but couples can adopt while living here if their country and that of the child’s allow it.

It is quicker because they work through embassies rather than international adoption agencies, which can take years longer.

“Usually it is faster and costs less than in their own countries,” said Dr Andrea Tosatto, a psychologist at the Synergy Integrated Medical Centre in Dubai, who has helped more than 400 couples to adopt.

“On average, an adoption takes one year here, while in Italy it would take around three years. There are people from Kuwait and Bahrain who are coming to ask for help.”

Embassies must determine whether the parents are fit to adopt, and then may legalise the adoption.

Ester Benbrook and her husband, expatriates in Dubai, have biological twins of their own – Hannah and Ella, aged 4. They adopted a son, Liam, from Ethiopia.

The Benbrooks met Liam in August 2014 when he was four and a half months old, and the adoption was legalised six months later.

“We got a call in August 2014 telling us we have a son. From that moment he was our son in our hearts,” said Ms Benbrook, a Slovakian.

She said the process could be overwhelming at first but it was just a matter of following steps.

“Compared to other countries, it’s easy,” Ms Benbrook said. “Not having an adoption agency, you feel you are more in control of where your papers go and how quickly or how slow.”

Gerlinde Krupp, 54, and Steve Allinson, 62, adopted Sofiya seven years ago and Callie four years ago from Ethiopia.

“We adopted for the first time in 2009, and then in 2012,” said Ms Krupp, a German, who adopted both children when they were 3 years old. “Back then the process was quite easy.

“With Sofiya, the entire process took us eight and a half months, and for Callie, it took two and a half months. I was 48 when I adopted for the first time and the second time 51.

“There would have been no chance for adopting a young child in Germany. It takes at least five years and there is an age limit. The adoption process in the UAE is much easier than in other countries, although getting the residence visa can be difficult at times.”

Marina Ottenga, from Italy, adopted two years ago, starting the process in October 2013 and taking charge of her daughter Diana the following January.

“We met Diana in January and she was 45 days old and was tiny,” Ms Ottenga said. “That moment was amazing. She was like a little dolly. She looked straight in our eyes and smiled.”

Australia’s child support and family protection department says it takes between four and seven years for an overseas adoption of a child under 2 years old.

AdoptionServices, an agency in US, says international adoptions take between one and five years, depending on the country involved.

Haircare resolutions 2021

From Beirut and Amman to London and now Dubai, hairstylist George Massoud has seen the same mistakes made by customers all over the world. In the chair or at-home hair care, here are the resolutions he wishes his customers would make for the year ahead.

1. 'I will seek consultation from professionals'

You may know what you want, but are you sure it’s going to suit you? Haircare professionals can tell you what will work best with your skin tone, hair texture and lifestyle.

2. 'I will tell my hairdresser when I’m not happy'

Massoud says it’s better to offer constructive criticism to work on in the future. Your hairdresser will learn, and you may discover how to communicate exactly what you want more effectively the next time.

3. ‘I will treat my hair better out of the chair’

Damage control is a big part of most hairstylists’ work right now, but it can be avoided. Steer clear of over-colouring at home, try and pursue one hair brand at a time and never, ever use a straightener on still drying hair, pleads Massoud.

3. ‘I will treat my hair better out of the chair’

Damage control is a big part of most hairstylists’ work right now, but it can be avoided. Steer clear of over-colouring at home, try and pursue one hair brand at a time and never, ever use a straightener on still drying hair, pleads Massoud.

Haircare resolutions 2021

From Beirut and Amman to London and now Dubai, hairstylist George Massoud has seen the same mistakes made by customers all over the world. In the chair or at-home hair care, here are the resolutions he wishes his customers would make for the year ahead.

1. 'I will seek consultation from professionals'

You may know what you want, but are you sure it’s going to suit you? Haircare professionals can tell you what will work best with your skin tone, hair texture and lifestyle.

'THE WORST THING YOU CAN EAT'

Trans fat is typically found in fried and baked goods, but you may be consuming more than you think.

Powdered coffee creamer, microwave popcorn and virtually anything processed with a crust is likely to contain it, as this guide from Mayo Clinic outlines: 

Baked goods - Most cakes, cookies, pie crusts and crackers contain shortening, which is usually made from partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. Ready-made frosting is another source of trans fat.

Snacks - Potato, corn and tortilla chips often contain trans fat. And while popcorn can be a healthy snack, many types of packaged or microwave popcorn use trans fat to help cook or flavour the popcorn.

Fried food - Foods that require deep frying — french fries, doughnuts and fried chicken — can contain trans fat from the oil used in the cooking process.

Refrigerator dough - Products such as canned biscuits and cinnamon rolls often contain trans fat, as do frozen pizza crusts.

Creamer and margarine - Nondairy coffee creamer and stick margarines also may contain partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.

Types of policy

Term life insurance: this is the cheapest and most-popular form of life cover. You pay a regular monthly premium for a pre-agreed period, typically anything between five and 25 years, or possibly longer. If you die within that time, the policy will pay a cash lump sum, which is typically tax-free even outside the UAE. If you die after the policy ends, you do not get anything in return. There is no cash-in value at any time. Once you stop paying premiums, cover stops.

Whole-of-life insurance: as its name suggests, this type of life cover is designed to run for the rest of your life. You pay regular monthly premiums and in return, get a guaranteed cash lump sum whenever you die. As a result, premiums are typically much higher than one term life insurance, although they do not usually increase with age. In some cases, you have to keep up premiums for as long as you live, although there may be a cut-off period, say, at age 80 but it can go as high as 95. There are penalties if you don’t last the course and you may get a lot less than you paid in.

Critical illness cover: this pays a cash lump sum if you suffer from a serious illness such as cancer, heart disease or stroke. Some policies cover as many as 50 different illnesses, although cancer triggers by far the most claims. The payout is designed to cover major financial responsibilities such as a mortgage or children’s education fees if you fall ill and are unable to work. It is cost effective to combine it with life insurance, with the policy paying out once if you either die or suffer a serious illness.

Income protection: this pays a replacement income if you fall ill and are unable to continue working. On the best policies, this will continue either until you recover, or reach retirement age. Unlike critical illness cover, policies will typically pay out for stress and musculoskeletal problems such as back trouble.

Unlike critical illness cover, policies will typically pay out for stress and musculoskeletal problems such as back trouble.

Types of policy

Term life insurance: this is the cheapest and most-popular form of life cover. You pay a regular monthly premium for a pre-agreed period, typically anything between five and 25 years, or possibly longer. If you die within that time, the policy will pay a cash lump sum, which is typically tax-free even outside the UAE. If you die after the policy ends, you do not get anything in return. There is no cash-in value at any time. Once you stop paying premiums, cover stops.

Whole-of-life insurance: as its name suggests, this type of life cover is designed to run for the rest of your life. You pay regular monthly premiums and in return, get a guaranteed cash lump sum whenever you die. As a result, premiums are typically much higher than one term life insurance, although they do not usually increase with age. In some cases, you have to keep up premiums for as long as you live, although there may be a cut-off period, say, at age 80 but it can go as high as 95. There are penalties if you don’t last the course and you may get a lot less than you paid in.

Critical illness cover: this pays a cash lump sum if you suffer from a serious illness such as cancer, heart disease or stroke. Some policies cover as many as 50 different illnesses, although cancer triggers by far the most claims. The payout is designed to cover major financial responsibilities such as a mortgage or children’s education fees if you fall ill and are unable to work.

'Worse than a prison sentence'

Marie Byrne, a counsellor who volunteers at the UAE government's mental health crisis helpline, said the ordeal the crew had been through would take time to overcome.

“It was worse than a prison sentence, where at least someone can deal with a set amount of time incarcerated," she said.

“They were living in perpetual mystery as to how their futures would pan out, and what that would be.

“Because of coronavirus, the world is very different now to the one they left, that will also have an impact.

“It will not fully register until they are on dry land. Some have not seen their young children grow up while others will have to rebuild relationships.

“It will be a challenge mentally, and to find other work to support their families as they have been out of circulation for so long. Hopefully they will get the care they need when they get home.”
