Alvin Needs a Forever Family!

Meet Alvin!

Every child deserves a home and a family to call their own, and today sweet little Alvin is heavy on our hearts. This happy two year old was diagnosed with infantile cerebral palsy, but he doesn’t let that get him down! He’s able to crawl, walk with a baby walker, and he loves physical activities. His caretakers say that he’s constantly smiling, babbling, and playing with his toys! He can respond to his name, and he’s currently working on drinking from cups and using silverware.  All of the doctors that have met with Alvin in Bulgaria have given him a very optimistic prognosis, and the social workers in country believe that once he is with his forever family he will continue to thrive and develop.

Could you be Alvin’s forever family? Contact us at CAN today to learn more about him, or visit our CAN Waiting Child Photo Listing to see his photo!

What is the Bulgaria Waiting Child program?

Our Bulgaria adoption program has both a “Regular Track” and a “Waiting Child Track.” While families who choose to adopt through the regular track wait to receive a referral for a medically healthy child, families who are interested in adopting a Waiting Child can submit their documents be matched with a specific kiddo from our Waiting Child listing at any point in the process. Each month, the CAN’s Matching Specialists receive files for new Waiting Children. These kiddos are often considered more difficult to place based on their age, the fact that they have some degree of “special need,” or the fact that they’re part of a sibling group. Since documents for these children can be submitted right away, the adoption process for the Waiting Child Track is typically much quicker.

5 Reasons to Adopt From Bulgaria

Bulgaria 1If you are looking to grow your family through international adoption, our Bulgaria adoption program could be a great fit! As this program continues to grow, we are seeing more and more children’s files coming in each month giving us the opportunity to help place children with loving Forever Families. Below are five reasons your family may want to consider beginning your Bulgaria adoption journey!

For more information, contact our CAN matching specialists today!

1. Traditional and Waiting Child Programs Bulgaria has both a Traditional Adoption program, and a Waiting Child track! Families that are waiting for a referral in the traditional adoption program are able to look at the Waiting Children that our agency is advocating for, giving them the option of switching to the Waiting Child program if that is where they find their child.

2. Get Matched Quickly In our Waiting Child program, you get to play a role in the matching process, meaning you can submit your request to be matched as soon as you find your child!

3. SiblingsYour family can be matched with a sibling group of 2 or more! While this is more common in the Waiting Child program, it is a possibility in the traditional program as well depending on the age range that you’re open to. Recently we’ve seen several sets of older twins in our Waiting Child program!

4. Healthy Older Children
Our Waiting Child program has children of all ages with varying degrees of needs. However, occasionally the only reason that a child is considered a “Waiting Child” is because they are older.

5. Younger Children
While younger healthy children are available through the traditional program, there are younger Waiting Children with special needs ranging anywhere from very minor to more moderate or severe. For families that are comfortable with needs, this is a great alternative which offers a shorter wait time.

If your family is interested in learning more about either our Bulgaria Traditional Adoption program or our Waiting Child program, please contact our CAN Matching Specialist, visit our Photo Listing, or join our Facebook group today!
