Russian Adoption Ban
New Hope is closely following
the developments through the Russian Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Education and Science and the U.S. State Dept. to provide the best information possible to our families. For the latest, you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@newhopeadoption), or contact our office.
It Starts with New Hope...
Your Russian adoption is a lifelong journey and NEW HOPE is here to help as you bring your child home and beyond! For our current and past parents, we have a Facebook group. Parents are able to share the journey with other parents, seek support and assistance from parents who either have been through the process or are going through it. Once you are with our program, we can add you to the group. Another way New Hope "walks" you through the process of your adoption and provides
you with support during and after your
adoption is finalized.
New Hope is the only NH-based adoption agency that is Hague accredited for international adoption! That means we can offer NH families our full services such as writing your Homestudy and Post-placement reports for any country program for a placement agency in any state.
New Hope for Children also has both Hague and Russian Accreditation! This means in addition to writing home- studies, our accreditation makes us one of only 38 American agencies that have both the COA Hague accreditation and are registered/accredited to work in Russia. Since the inter-country agreement between U.S. and Russia was signed on July 13, 2011, only agencies having both accreditations have been able to work in Russia. We're hopeful the adoption ban will be temporary so we can continue to facilitate adoptions in Russia.
Congratulations to the Petitt Family - united at last on Feb. 2nd! The Petitt's adopted little Denis -- now Chance Michael -- in Dec. 2012. Their court case was then put on hold due to the adoption ban signed by Pres. Putin in late December.
New Hope and the Petitts never gave up on their adoption to bring Chance home. Our
Russia team in St. Petersburg
worked tirelessly, engaging the
Ombudsman for Children's
Rights and local media to
encourage the lower court to
uphold Russia's Supreme
Court's commitment to finalize
adoptions approved in 2012.
