Due to the ongoing suspension of exit permits from the Congolese authority, DGM, we are currently not accepting NEW applicants for this program. In-process adoptions continue to be completed. As soon as the ban is lifted we will be able to process new applications. In the meantime, if you are interested in adopting from Africa, please call Debra at 1-843-343-5534.
EAC is working in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice in DRC to complete adoptions from Congo. There are many benefits to the Congo program including fast processing times and quick referrals. The Democratic Republic of the Congo has about 4.2 million orphaned children due to significant poverty, death of one or more parents, war and famine. These orphans desperately need a home and a loving forever family.
August 2016 – 50 children home this year!
June 2014: All aspects of Congo adoptions are moving forward at this time, however DGM is not processing exit letters until September 25th, 2014 as stated by Congolese Government.
April 2016: Over the last few weeks we celebrated the arrival of 28 precious children legally brought home from DRCongo. Join us in welcoming them home and to the EAC forever family!
August 2016: EAC’s Africa Director, Debra Parris, will be traveling to Africa the end of September 2016. Her plans include trips to the DRC, Uganda, Burkina Faso and Tanzania. There she will be looking for new orphanages as well as visiting the older orphanages who have not had the proper assistance. Her mission is to search for children in medical need and find ways to help. She will be also researching laws, licensing and adoption requirements for different countries.
8-22-16: Three more children home from DRC! Two EAC Families from Texas and one family from North Carolina just welcomed their children. That makes a total of 50 happy families home from DRC this year. Congratulations, and blessings to all!
