CAN welcomes two new families who have applied and been approved for our Poland program! Many of our families continue to be open to our Waiting Children which we have been advocating for on our website. We are seeking out more specific information on parent eligibility and matching these children to specific families who have expressed interest in them.
After the dossier is submitted, translations usually take between 2-4 weeks. Those who are adopting a Waiting Child will have an immediate match. For families who request to be matched by the Central Authority, these families typically experience about a 12 month referral wait for a match.
As a reminder, the children typically available in Poland are:
Boys and girls age 6-16 years old
Children between ages 1-8 are typically special needs
