The US Department of State estimates that the transition to the new Ukrainian adoption authority will be complete by mid to late June 2006. At this time, no appointments for US families in the process of adopting have been set up with the new office in Ukraine.
Please note that Ukrainian adoptions are not closed for US families. Families currently in the process of adopting will experience delays and may not be able to obtain an appointment for several weeks. Parents initiating the process should be advised that children must still fall into one of the three categories specified above in order to be eligible for adoption.
