time is up for non-Hague agencies

The CCAA has announced that, beginning December 1, 2009, all prospective adoptive families will be required to work with a U.S. Hague accredited adoption service provider for both transition cases and Convention cases.

This could have huge implications for any in process family who is working with an agency that is not Hague accredited. Please confirm that your agency has received their accreditation.

  1. Adoptions just opened up from Costa Rica! There are now four agencies in the US that have been approved. I work with an organization that has two children's homes in Costa Rica, and I was just playing with the kids today. There are many older children waiting for a family here!
