Agape Adoptions is honored to advocate for the children of Bulgaria. Bulgaria is a beautiful, mountainous country located on the Black Sea. The country transitioned from a Communist government to a democracy in 1991. Bulgaria utilizes state-run orphanages, and all of the children Agape Adoptions works with live in these institutions. All adoptions from Bulgaria are completed in accordance with the Hague Convention on inter country adoption. More information can be found here.
Families must make two trips to complete their adoption. The first trip occurs 2-3 months after the dossier is sent to Bulgaria and requires about one week in country. Both parents must travel. The second trip is for U.S. processing and the visa process, lasting 7-10 days. Only one parent must travel on the second trip. There are 4-6 months between trips.
The estimated cost for an adoption from Bulgaria is $22,000 to $27,000. Please contact us for more specific information on fees associated with adopting a child from Bulgaria.
