Waiting Child Photolisting Rotation

There are numerous accredited Bulgarian adoption agencies, or Foreign Supervised Providers, who advocate for children at the same time.  Once a child’s cycle with one accredited agency is over, the child goes to another agency who advocates for the child through their US accredited agencies.  For these reasons, a child may no longer be on our rotation, but may still be available for adoption.  You could pursue their adoption through what is called a “pending application”.  In any case, if you are interested in a particular child, you should contact us and we’ll find out the status of the child before we talk any further.

Are These 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.

We estimate that only 20% to 30% of available children are listed here.  Therefore, 70% to 80% of children are not seen here. To read more about that, please see this article. 

A Warning About “Waiting Children Photolistings”

As friendly advice, we’d like to warn you not to 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 adoption services. 

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

Keep in mind that most countries the offer international adoption won’t consider your wishes until you have a completed home study, (or a home study for expats) a CIS approval, and a dossier. 

 

Why Do I See The Same Children Listed Elsewhere?

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. 

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. 

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 Application”.  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.
