Our desire is to see all children placed in forever families. To that end, we work with our in-country contacts to try to determine the adoption status of children when we interview them. Many children are available but not all. Some may be in the process of being made available for intercountry adoption, others already are. HOW is strictly a hosting organization, and as a result, we are not always able to obtain current or accurate information and we’re unable to guarantee the availability of any child for adoption.
If you have any questions about the status of your host child, we will gladly recommend qualified adoption agencies and/or Ukrainian adoption facilitators who may be better able to answer questions.
