    Q0: What are the children for adoption like from Bulgaria?
    A0: There are children as young as 12 months available for adoption but the greatest number of children waiting for families are older. All of these children need a family to call their own. The children are often of Roma descent and have olive skin and dark brown eyes and hair. The children live in orphanages, but many of the orphanages are small and have less than 75 children at the time to care for. The caretakers are usually kind and many try to give the children the love they so desperately need.

    Q1: How long will the process take?
    A1: A lot of this depends on you. Many families can get thier home study and dossier ready in 2 to 3 months - even faster in some cases. If you are just beginning the process, the first thing recommended is to file your I-600A (USCIS paperwork) and the next thing to do is to make an appointment with a home study agency to begin your home study assessment. Once your paperwork is gathered and your dossier is complete, it is submitted to Bulgaria. After you paperwork is turned in to the foreign government, you can expect to have the finalization in approximately 6 to 9 months. At that point you can then travel to pick up your child. There are two trips required for an adoption in Bulgaria. The first trip takes place at the beginning of the adoption processs and the second trip takes place when you travel to pick up your child. Avery realistic time line estimate is approximately 9 to 12 months from the beginning of the process until the time to travel to pick up you child.

    Q2: Is there limitations for parents age, status, etc.?
    A2: Adoptive parent can only be a legally able person who has not been deprived of parental rights. Bulgaria has become one of the more flexible programs of Eastern Europe. Bulgaria is open to both married couples and single females of 25 - 55 years , provided that at least one parent is at least 15 years older than the child. New legislation also provides that the presence of other children in your family does not affect the process.

    Q6: What are the advantages of Bulgaria adoption program?
    A6: The Bulgaria program offers several advantages over other Eastern European programs:
    -international adoption from Bulgaria can be accomplished in one trip, as escorts for the children back to the parents country are permitted and court hearings can be handled without the adoptive parents’ attendance
    -any and all trips to Bulgaria for adoption can be relatively short in length. The country provides a good alternative to the family who does not want to worry about staying in a foreign country for an extended period
    -Bulgarian adoption will require a minimum of in-country travel. Most of the activities relating to the adoption would occur in one city – Sofia. Also - there are located bigest international airport and foreign embasies that would issue your child his or her exit visa
