Antidepressants & Chinese Adoptions

Q: If my husband could wean himself off of antidepressants and be off of them for 2 years, would we be given an equal opportunity to adopt a child from China, or would they look at his history of using antidepressants and deny us?

A: Yes, after the subscribed period of time off antidepressants, it is my understanding that China will treat you as any other applicant. However, I would suggest thinking very hard before doing something this drastic and make sure you discuss thoroughly with his doctor. Keep in mind that the current wait for a China adoption (non Special Need) is upwards of 6 years.
