Kazakhstan Update

This excerpt, from an announcement from the National Council For Adoption, contains the latest information we  have regarding Kazakhstan:

“On May 17, 2010, U.S. Embassy Branch Office Almaty confirmed that the Ministry of Education of Kazakhstan has instructed Kazakhstan’s Embassy in Washington and Consulate General in New York not to accept new intercountry adoption dossiers.  The Ministry said the moratorium on new adoption cases will remain in effect until Kazakhstan implements a system that is compliant with the Hague Adoption Convention; Kazakhstan intends to put such a system in place by September 2010.  Kazakhstani officials have said the moratorium will not affect adoptions that are already in process.â€
