As an important element of Joint Council’s Kyrgyzstan Initiative, we will conduct an advocacy mission to Kyrgyzstan February 5 through February 13. The mission will include meetings with members of the Kyrgyz Parliament and Ministries along with the U.S. Consular Office, Krygyz media and child welfare professionals.
Joint Council will also present letters to the President and Prime Minister from 30 Members of the U.S. Congress and a separate joint letter from Joint Council, the National Council For Adoption and over 60 U.S. adoptive families. The letters respectfully request the leadership of the President and Prime Minister in resolving pending adoptions and the lifting of the suspension of all adoptions.
Accompanying Joint Council are 3 adoptive parents, each of whom possess a significant and valued skill set.
