Our program in England/United Kingdom includes:
- Preparing :
We are going to have an interview meeting, during which we’ll have the opportunity to meet each other, give you detailed and useful information, answer your questions, advise you properly, discuss your expectations and help you make the right decision when it comes to choose the family.
In case a personal meeting is impossible, we can arrange a session on Skype.
