Adopting a Child From Bulgaria
Meet Ana! She is one of our moms who is adopting her daughter from Bulgaria.
When we first talked to Ana, we remembers hearing the heartbreak in her voice becuse of her failed attempts to adopt a child locally from foster care.
It wasn’t easy to convince Ana that the international adoption process wouldn’t end in another heartbreak. But she went by faith and trusted that the outcome can be different with her Bulgarian adoption!
Adopting He Daughter from Bulgaria
So, in April of 2020, Ana left the past in the past and completed her waiting child application.
We helped her with the paperwork and in March 2021, a year later, she flew to Bulgaria to meet her daughter in person!
They fell deeply in love! The bond and connection they have is a gift from God! As believers, we give thanks to Jesus Christ for putting this family toghether!
Yesterday, (May 19, 2020) we got a call from Bulgaria telling us that her final court hearing is scheduled for June!
We expect her final trip to take place about 30 days after that!
This means that Despite Covid delays, her entire process would be finished in around 15 months!
Ana’s Timeline with Her Adoption
As adoption professionals, one of the most common question we have to answer is “how long will this take”. As you can imagine, this is a difficult question to answer because there are so many variables.
That is why we love sharing real stories of real adoptive parents who can testify to their own timelines. Then you can compare to the the timeline that is on our site and see how they match up.
We’re thrilled to say that Ana’s adoption went really fast! About 15 months.
