What are the expenses?

Russian Adoption Fees
$11,000 to $16.500 depending upon age of child, plus expenses.

What is the Process?

This program has been established in St. Petersburg, Russia since 1993. Once your file is submitted to the Adoption Center in St. Petersburg, you are given an assignment of a child; you may wait longer if you want an infant girl. In general, boys and toddlers are readily available. Next the child will be taken to the Euro Medical Clinic to be given a physical (Denver Developmental test and blood tests) and bloodwork (Hepatitis, Syphilis, and HIV). Shortly after your child is assigned to you, you travel to the country to meet your child. Upon acceptance of the child, papers are filed and a court date is set. You then travel in about 5-6 weeks to adopt your child. Your child will be seen again at the American Medical Center in Moscow before obtaining the child's visa.
