Adopting from Poland

Hello! I would love to see some other families hoping/waiting to adopt from Poland or who have already adopted join this group.  My husband and I are currently waiting for a referral, we having been in the waiting stage since April 2010.


We came home in Feb 2008 with our then 2 year old son, adopted from Poland. We were pre-Hague and waited just over 10 months for his referral. We had one long trip, 7.5 weeks. Looking forward to meeting others in this group. Kelly

Hello my name is Melissa and my husband and I feel that God is asking us to adopt from Poland.  We have filled out our paperwork and so I have been reading this is the start of a long process.

We are praying for money at this point.  We have an approval letter from our agency.  Now saving and selling cards to make the next 5K.    Thank you for your welcome from this group.  We are the first of our friends to start this adventure and at times it is hard.  What lead the two of you to Poland?

I am too looking to adopt from Poland and am looking for a referral for a good agency.  I am located in Chicago.  Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated!

So sorry for the delay in the response.  We moved to Ohio in August so as you can imagine the roller coaster we have been on the last four months has been a fast one.  We went with an agency in NC if you are still in need of one let me know.  Now that we are in Ohio we are looking for a social worker to do our home study.

Hi. My husband and I adopted a sibling group (sister and brother, ages 9 and 8) from Poland.  We came home in January 2011.  So we’re about to have our first Thanksgiving together and our first Christmas together in America.  We also had one long trip of 6 weeks.  We adopted from Lodz.  The first 3 weeks were spent there, ending in court.  Then the next three were in Warsaw.  We live in Kansas City and I would really love to meet some other folks who adopted from Poland in Missouri or Kansas.
