Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
Recently, a number of concerns about the international adoption process in Samoa have been brought to the attention of the U.S. government. U.S. citizens contemplating adoption in Samoa are strongly advised to exercise caution before proceeding with proposed adoptions. The U.S. Consulate General in Auckland examines each case to determine whether completed adoptions meet the requirements of U.S. immigration law. As part of this review process, a consular officer interviews birth parents of children being placed for adoption.
For more information about adoption from this country and about adoption agencies that can assist you, please visit the websites below. Prospective adoptive parents are advised to fully research any of the adoption agencies they plan to use for adoption services.
