Important Notice to the Adoption Community Interested in Ukraine - June 14, 2006

Dear Members of the American Adoption Community Interested in Ukraine:

The Embassy has received a diplomatic note dated June 6, 2006 from the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine noting the new adoption authority, the State Department for Adoption and Protection of Rights of the Child will open in July 2006. The Embassy will continue to track the transition and other adoption-related issues closely, and will provide updates as appropriate by e-mail and on our webpage: Any American adopting parents who would like to be added to our e-mail list are welcome to contact us at adoptionskiev @ state . gov (remove spaces).

I'm really trying to be hopeful, but right now all I want to do is lay my head down and cry.

I adopted my darling daughter from Ukraine in 2000. I know there have been a lot of ups and downs with Ukraine recently. I have hope that adoption will start up in July.

I hope you are feeling a little better.
