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.
