Republic of Georgia adoption?

My husband and I adopted a son from Russia about a year and a half ago and we are ready to adopt a second child. Although we loved Russia, I think that we had too many issues and delays during the process, so I’d like to explore other countries.

A friend told me about the new Republic of Georgia program through Adoption Advocates. They sighed the Hague, so I guess they are allowing international adoptions now, after a 2-3 year block. Does anyone know anything about this program? I have all kinds of information provided by the agency, but I can’t find anything else about it online. It sounds like a GREAT program, but I can’t just take the agency’s word for it. That could get me in trouble. Is there anyone out there who has signed up for the program? I appreciate your help!!


I can’t speak for the state of the process today.  In the summer of ‘03 we had met a couple who adopted a little girl from Georgia in the city of Tblisi.  They had a fantastic experience.  As we finished our paperwork in the fall of ‘03 Georgia underwent a political change and adoption was shut down.

We ended up going to Russia (Cheboksary), and had a wonderful experience.

I would also love to know the current state of the Georgian adoption program.  I would be very interested in pursuing an adoption from Georgia in the future.

Jason - we brought our son home from Cheboksary in July 2012! Would love to stay in touch over time.

We are currently looking into the Georgia program but not finding much info!
