The Bulgaria Matching Process
Last month during our CAN team’s trip to Bulgaria, they had the opportunity to meet with the incredible men and women who represent our agency in-country. CAN is currently partnered with two different NGOs in Bulgaria, each of which plays a vital role in our Waiting Child adoption program. One team of representatives is pictured here, wearing our TEAM CAN t-shirts!
Our Bulgaria Waiting Child adoption program has grown so much in the past year, and we are looking forward to seeing this growth continue as even more Waiting Children will be coming this year!
Why does CAN love Bulgaria?
One of the many things that makes our Bulgaria Waiting Child adoption program so unique is the matching process. Unlike many adoption programs where families receive a referral based on the age range, gender and needs that they specify, our Bulgaria Waiting Child program provides them with the chance to play a role in their matching process. This program is also very open to families in terms of eligibility requirements, and offers a relatively quick process from the moment you apply till the day you bring your child home forever!
How does the matching process work?
Every two months, CAN’s in-country representatives attend a distribution meeting where they are able to select files. Throughout this process, they keep any current families’ adoption desires in mind with the hope that they will see a child or sibling group that might be a good fit for them.
Once CAN receives these children’s files we begin to advocate on their behalf, both with current families and with families who request their file from our Waiting Child photo listing. One thing to keep in mind about the matching process for this program is that families can be matched with a child at ANY point in the process. This means even if you find your child before you’ve begun submitting paperwork, we can submit a request for you to be matched with them!
CAN is currently advocating for several children and sibling groups from Bulgaria with the hope that they will each find a loving family. Visit our Waiting Child photo listing today to view their profiles or request their full medical files!
