Post Adoption Reporting
America World is grateful to our families for honoring their post-adoption reporting requirements. So many of our families do an outstanding job of completing those reports over the course of their post-adoption journey. Not only does that reporting schedule provide a time for AWAA to reconnect with families and offer additional supports, or share in celebration with you, but post-adoption reporting is also vital to the future of international adoptions. Both foreign countries and the U.S. Department of State look closely at the compliance of reporting as a measure of the overall success of international adoption. The adoption of future generations of orphaned children around the world is greatly influenced by the post-adoption report of American families today.
We are glad to help with that, even if you (or someone you know) are years late, or if your agency closed.
The specific requirements vary from country to country, can be detailed, and may extend until adopted children turn 18 (or even older in a few rare cases). Information on country-specific requirements can be found on the Department of State’s Post-Adoption Reporting Overview.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 800-429-3369 for help with doing your reports. Keeping your contact info up to date is critical for receiving these reminders – please let us know if your email address or other contact information has recently changed!
A BIG THANK YOU to all of those families who have faithfully submitted your reports on-time – your efforts are greatly appreciated!
Also, if you are struggling, ANYWHERE in the world as ANY type of adoptive family, we have support groups and clinically trained staff ready to assist you individually through video-conference. Email ACT@awaa.org for more information.
