Need help! Has anyone completed a Guatemealan adoption recently?

We were recently notified by USCIS that we can proceed with our with our Guatemalan adoption that we began in 2007.  We are trying to find a reputable adoption agency that can assist us.  We live in Missouri, USA.  Thanks!

I’d go to  It has a lot of details about what is required, as well as what adoption providers are certified.  They do list at least one in Missouri.

Has a child been referred to you yet?

Yes we had a child referred to us in 2007.  For many reasons we are no longer pursuing this adoption.  Our adoption case was one of hundreds of adoption cases in progress that were disrupted when the country of Guatemala stopped processing any adoptions when it signed The Hague Convention on International Adoptions.  I believe that was in 2008.
