Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
Only adoption centers authorized by the Minister of Labor and Social Welfare can evaluate a Polish child’s eligibility for intercountry adoption. At present, only the Public Adoptive-Guardian Center (Publiczny Osrodek Adopcyjno-Opiekunczy) has this authorization. The Public Adoptive-Guardian Center maintains a list of all children residing in orphanages who are available for international adoption because their parents have died, have relinquished all rights to them, or have had them relinquished by a court.
There are three adoption centers in Poland that are authorized to qualify foreign prospective parents for adoption in Poland. The prospective parents or duly-licensed American adoption agencies may submit documents of candidates for adoption only to these centers.
