We are happy to inform you that our first child from Ukraine arrived home last month – on Christmas Day! Congratulations to this family and to their little boy who is doing wonderfully with in his transition and adjustment to the U.S.
Our second traveling family is currently awaiting final court proceedings before bringing their little girl home.
CAN has recently been focusing on advocating for the adoption of older children, with a highlight on our Ukraine program. We hope to bring more awareness to the “fast” (it’s a relative term!) adoption process families can have in Eastern Europe if they commit to an older child adoption. Although the challenges of adopting from Eastern Europe include a more stringent dossier process, the benefits include a speedy referral matching process once that dossier is in!
