Kazakhstan Suspends Intercountry Adoption

14 05 2010

It is Joint Council’s understanding that the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan  has informed the Consulate General of the Republic of Kazakhstan in New York that effective May 15th  the Embassy will temporarily  no longer accept adoption dossiers, due to Kazakhstan’s intention in joining  the Hague Convention  on Intercountry Adoption.   It is unclear at this time how this will effect families who have received a referral in Kazakhstan, families who have previously submitted dossiers but have not yet received a referral, and families who had recently begun the process of adopting a child from Kazakhstan.

It is Joint Council’s assessment that a suspension of intercountry adoption during the period of which Kazakhstan prepares to and implements the Hague Convention is not in the best interest of children and is in conflict with the very principles of the Hague and the specifics of the Hague Guide to Good Practice.

Joint Council will continue to communicate with our contacts with the U.S. Dept of State and the Government of Kazakhstan in assessing the situation and will update as more information becomes available.

I think it is truly sad when a country suspends inter-country adoptions. It truly is not in the best interest of orphan or abandoned children to not let them be adopted by people from other countries.
