Uganda January Update
Our first Uganda family to travel has cleared many hurdles, and is poised to enter the U.S. Embassy process in the coming days. We are so excited for this trail blazing family!
Families waiting for a match can improve their chances of receiving a referral by widening the parameters you are willing to accept, i.e. being open to a child of either gender, widening the age range, or even considering a special need like HIV. You can learn more about HIV and CAN’s Gift of Hope program here: http://childrenofallnations.com/hiv-program/
Another great option we are still offering to all of our waiting Uganda families is signing on with our newest Uganda partnership, which we first introduced to families in Summer 2013. Our 2 most recent referrals (a healthy 2-year-old boy and a healthy 2-year-old girl) were received through this newer partnership. Any families who wish to proceed with this option can sign and return the attached Letter of Understanding to your Referral Counselor at your earliest convenience.

Ukraine January Update
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!Read More
Poland January Update

CAN has been given very brief profile information on 4 more waiting children! We are looking to get more information and photos of these children and hope to add them to our Waiting Child list soon.Read More
