The Ukraine is a wonderful country from which to adopt children. This is Carolina Hope's longest running program.

Who can adopt?
The Ukrainian government places few restrictions on who can adopt. In general, if you have an approved home study and approval from Immigration and Naturalization Services, then the Ukrainian government will also approve you.

Adopting a child with special needs?
For those interested in adopting a child with special needs such as a child with a cleft-palate, a missing limb, Down syndrome, or other serious physical or mental affliction, the fee for one child is $7,250,...$2,500 for a second child with special needs, if they are siblings. If you feel that God is leading you in this direction, we will be glad to discuss the situation in the Ukraine and selecting such a child once you are there.

What age children are available?
Carolina Hope Adoption Agency
Primarily toddlers and older children are available, but will probably be one year or older at assignment.

How long does it take to adopt?
After you are BCIS (Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services) approved, you travel in about 4-6 months as only 10 families per day from around the world can go to the National Adoption Center. Although this means that families now must wait an extra month or two before they can travel, it also means that families are receiving more personalized attention at the Center. Therefore, it takes about nine months from the time that you start the process until the time that you come home with a child.

How is a child assigned to me?
Ukrainian law does not permit agencies to provide pictures or videos of specific children. Carolina Hope Adoption Agency You must select your child once you are in the Ukraine. This process is done very compassionately. You describe the age and sex of the child you want. You are shown a picture of a child, and then you get to meet that child. If the child does not meet your health expectations, then you may select another child. The Ukrainian government wants you to be very sure that this is the child you want.

What are the advantages of adopting from the Ukraine?
The Ukrainian program is a popular program because the costs are very reasonable and the process moves very quickly.
