As many of you might have heard the state department has come out with some proposed new rules regulating intercountry adoption that will drastically impact the ability for orphaned children to be adopted. We along with most other adoption agencies are urging the state department to reconsider their proposed changes and come up with a better solution. We urge you to sign the petition below. I have also included a link from the National Council for Adoption. They have a blog to help families better understand the Proposed Intercountry Adoption Regulations. Please feel free to read more about the proposed changes.
