D needs an I-600A filled out and overnighted to Texas TODAY!!!
He is currently living in an orphanage in Eastern Europe. His birthday is on April 1, and if he turns 16 and nobody has filled out the paperwork for his adoption, he will “age out” of the system and his future is bleak.
Details about adoption requirements for his country:
Married couples only
Married individual adoptions available for those who qualify
No stated family size restrictions
As of late 2011, there’s no longer an upper age limit for parents
At least one parent must be a minimum of 15 years older than the child
Total with travel approx $25k
First trip, 2-4 weeks to attend court
10 day wait after court (parents can return home)
Only one parent must return to complete the adoption for approx 14 days
No diagnosed history of mental health conditions or certain infectious diseases
No criminal history
May adopt multiple unrelated children
This is a very fast program! Start to finish is an average of 7 months. Families committing to children in this program, especially the children at risk of the institution, should be in a financial position to complete the adoption quickly. It is a blessing to be able to adopt so quickly, but leaves little time for major fundraising efforts.
Canadian families welcome!
People have stepped up and offered to cover the initial fees associated with the I-600A. People have also offered to do crowd funding and fundraisers to help with the adoption costs. I do hope that the adoption fees to not deter anyone who can give D a good home and a family. He really wants a mom and dad.
