Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
The government office responsible for adoptions in Peru is the Ministry for Women and Social Development (Ministerio de la Mujer y Desarrollo Social, or MIMDES). Only MIMDES-approved adoption agencies are permitted to initiate foreign adoptions in Peru. Each licensed adoption agency must designate at least one local (Peruvian) representative. MIMDES reviews each agency's status every two years. There are currently only about eight U.S. adoption agencies approved by MIMDES.
