SLOWDOWNS IN THREE COUNTRIES EXPECTED TO LENGTHEN ADOPTION  WAITS
As a result of changes in the top three sending countries for 
international adoptions - China, Russia and Guatemala - prospective 
adoptive parents are facing longer waits, according to an April 23 report, 
Wait Grows for Foreign Adoptions, by Richard Read in The Oregonian. The article suggests the slowdowns in these countries may result in a 
temporary reversal in the rapid growth in U.S. overseas adoptions, and may 
contribute to the decision of some Americans to adopt domestically, opt 
for special-needs children in China (which is a faster track), or switch 
to newer sources of adoption including Ethiopia, Haiti, Nepal and other 
developing countries. China had instituted new requirements for applicants 
seeking to adopt a healthy child; Russian adoptions have stalled as a 
result of agencies not getting accredited; and U.S. officials have warned 
against adoptions from Guatemala due to corruption and will require 
tougher child-protection measures to be implemented once the U.S. has 
ratified the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption. To read the

RUSSIA DELAYS LICENSING, CAUSING FOREIGN ADOPTIONS TO BE SUSPENDED
The U.S. Department of State issued a notice on April 25 
confirming that no U.S. adoption agencies have been accredited with the Russian Federation's Ministry of Education and Science; as a result, all foreign adoptions have been suspended indefinitely until accreditations are issued. Russia has issued no deadlines as to when the reviews will be finalized. A law passed by the Dumas last November requires all foreign adoption agencies to be registered as nongovernmental organizations and requires the approval of four government ministries (interior, justice, foreign affairs, and health) before a license for accreditation can be issued. In its notice, the State Department said it was encouraging the Russian government to complete appropriate accreditations as expeditiously as possible.
