Russia News

Our office received news earlier that the Russian Supreme Court has issued a letter addressing the fate of numerous families caught in a nebulous state following the ban on Russian adoptions to the United States.

“On January 22, 2013, The Russian Supreme Court ruled that families who had been issued court approval to adopt before January 1, 2013 would be able to bring their children home to the United States. This includes families who are currently in their 30 day waiting period after court approval. This is helpful news for the approximately 52 families who are past court approval.

 The many hundreds more families and children who are at earlier stages in the adoption process are not addressed by this ruling. The United States State Department has stated that they ‘continue[s] to urge the Russian government to allow U.S. families already in the process of adopting a child from Russia to complete their adoptions so that these children may join permanent, loving families.’”

We will be posting more information as it readily becomes available, but you can keep up with updates yourself here at {} as well.
