May 26, 2006, Newsletter Issue #51: Requirements for International Adoption

Tip of the Week

Parents who want to adopt internationally must comply with laws in the country in which they live as well as the country from which they want to adopt. Currently, China adoption programs, Russia, Kazakhstan, Guatemala, Vietnam, Ukraine, and Korea adoption programs are the most popular in the U.S. Each country has varying restrictions regarding age, financial status, evidence of marital stability (required number of years married), how many other children a family has, and whether or not single parents can adopt (sometimes restricted by gender).

Some restrictions, such as age or single status, may be lessened for parents who consider adopting a child with special needs. When adopting internationally, the parents should become acquainted with the laws and regulations of the country that they hope to adopt from.
