Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
As of the date of this update (Jan. 2007) Belarus is currently closed to adoptions by foreign citizens. At this time the US Department of State has been corresponding with the Government of Belarus regarding the need for clear and current information on the adoption process. Virtually all intercountry adoptions in Belarus have ceased since October 4, 2004, when Belarusian President Aliaksandr Lukashenko asked his cabinet to look into international adoptions. The Government of Belarus changed its adoption procedures in 2005 but adoptions have yet to move forward.
Prospective adoptive parents are advised to fully research any of the adoption agencies or facilitators they plan to use for adoption services.
