Disclaimer

The Waiting Children you see listed above may no longer be available for adoption.  Because, there are numerous agencies advocating  for them at the same time, any child who is currently listed may become unavailable at any time.   If you are interested in any particular child, we will find out if the child is still available before we start any paperwork with you. 

Second Disclaimer:  In accordance with US regulations, our agency promises to inform the Bulgarian MOJ if we become aware that a family with a completed home study may be interested in adopting any “waiting child” for whom our agency has already submitted an “MOJ Appication”.  The reason for this is that the Ministry, upon its sole discretion, may decide that it is in the best interest of the child to be matched with a family who has a completed home study.  

Are "Waiting Children" all the children available?

No.

In fact, most of the children available for international adoption will not appear on here, or other “waiting child photo-listings”. 

The photo-listing is allowed by Bulgarian MOJ.  It is a way to advocate for these children because they have more severe special needs or are older.   

If you are not open to special needs, or older children, you may consider  Traditional Bulgarian Adoption.

A "Waiting Child" warning from St. Mary's friendly staff

In order to prevent heartbreak, we advise that you do not fall in love with waiting children before understanding the adoption process, it’s timetables, and necessary approvals.  Please also understand the child’s special needs before considering them further. 

Please know that waiting children are not, or should not, be held “waiting” by an agency.  Those agencies who abide by the Hague Convention’s international adoption laws work under the supervision of governments, both domestic and foreign, to provide adopiton services. 

Agencies do not have the authority to keep waiting children.  Only governments who have jurisdiction of the children may be willing to do that given that you follow their requirements and their timetable for the adoption process. 

Why do I see the same waiting children on different sites?

Because the Bulgarian MOJ shares these children’s files with the accredited Bulgarian agencies.  These accredited Bulgarian agencies then work with different US adoption agencies.  So a child may be rotated between different agencies until they have find parents.  

Each child is under the supervision of the MOJ.  So even if a child is not currently in our partner’s rotation, we could still help you adopt them – given that they are available.  

Bulgaria Adoption Process – “Waiting Child”

Step 1

View waiting children.  Consult with a doctor about child’s special needs, if any.

Step 2

Use an accredited agency to submit your “MOJ Application” to Bulgarian MOJ.

Step 3

Upon approval of your application by MOJ, let your agency help you with the paperwork – same as “traditional”. (Includes Home Study, CIS Approval, and Dossier)

Step 4.

MOJ typically allows you 6 months to get your CIS approval and complete dossier.

Step 5.

Use an accredited agency to present completed dossier, including Home Study and CIS approval to MOJ.

Step 6.

First trip.  Meet your child.  Before leaving, give consent to continue adoption. (See a family’s blog showing their videos/pics from their first meet).  See an article about Bulgarian Orphanage Conditions“.

Step 7. 

Few months later, on your second trip, go to pick up your child. (See a family’s blog who recently picked up their children from the orphanage!)
