Adoption and EAC News


November 15, 2016 Update: regarding the proposed new regulations

As you may know, the U.S. Department of State has proposed new regulations that may significantly impact international adoption. While National Council For Adoption supports some of the themes these proposed regulations set out to address, the impact of these rules is worrisome to adoptive families and adoption professionals. 

Help us celebrate adoption by using your voice to create a better future for children living outside of family care. Call your Senators and Representative THIS WEEK and ask them to sign their name to the Congressional letter by Friday, November 18th

December 17th, 2012 – RUSSIA NEWS

EAC has been made aware of another rumored situation which could ban international adoptions from Russia as early as January 2013. The situation involves Russia’s response to the United States “Magnitsky Act”. We are handling this a rumor as no official word has been issued from the United States Department of State.

We hope the Russian response will not ban adoptions from Russia.

We are focused on obtaining “credible” information, and will forward this information to you as soon as possible.

We ask, in respect to all EAC families involved, you refrain from calling us with questions regarding this situation.

At this point, we simply, do not know the facts surrounding this rumor. As reliable information becomes available EAC will continue to send you updates.
