Romania: Adoption Law Approved by Romanian Senate

06/01/2004

The new adoption law was approved by the Romanian Senate on March 11th and is scheduled to be voted on by the House of Deputies after the elections in June. As currently written, the new adoption legislation would essentially stop all intercountry adoptions. Many groups, including Joint Council, have been advocating to the Romanians, the European Union and to the U.S. Government for changes to be made in the legislation to allow intercountry adoptions to resume. It is our hope that the various parties involved can pursue an agreeable revision of the legislation that would permit intercountry adoption.
