Angels' Haven has yet another
new pilot program in the Ukraine. We are again, looking
for families willing to take the challenge of being the
first to experience the adoption process with us! Children
12 months of age and older are waiting for families. We
are being told that once the adoption dossier is submitted
perspective adoptive parents should expect to travel within
just a couple of weeks to locate and adopt their child.

Babies, toddlers and older children are
available for adoption. Married couples, families with children and single women may
apply for adoption from Romania. There is some flexibility in the age of the
perspective parents and travel is generally not required. Happily, most of the
infants and toddlers are in a private center or in foster families. Clients will
submit a dossier and a child will be matched. Currently, the time frame from the
time a family submits the dossier until the child comes home is taking about 6 to 9 months
(less for older children). Click
