Agape Adoptions is honored to advocate for children in Romania who are in need of permanent loving families. The Romania program is a small one, open only to those who hold US and Romanian citizenship. Agape Adoptions has received accreditation from the Romanian Office for Adoptions (ROA), now the newly formed adoption authority of National Authority for Protection of Children’s Rights and Adoption (ANPDCA). All adoptions from Romania are completed in accordance with the Hague Convention on inter country adoption. More information can be found here.
Children ages 3 and older are waiting for adoption.
Romania has a residency travel requirement for all international adoptions. Both parents (in two-parent families) must travel and effectively reside in Romania for a minimum of 30 days to interact and bond with the child they intend to adopt. One to three trips may be required to complete your adoption. All adoptions are finalized in Romania.
After returning home, six post-placement visits are required, every four months, for the first 24 months. Agape Adoptions can assist you with the processing of these reports for the adoption authority.
