Earlier this week one family accepted their referral for a little girl and are anxiously awaiting their travel dates. One family came home from Russia after finalizing the adoption of their daughter. Two families passed through court successfully and are finishing out their time in Russia. We are excited to see so many families moving forward with their adoptions and so many beautiful children coming home. Almost all recent referrals have been boys, and we expect this trend to continue as Russian officials continue to tell us that there are very few young girls available. Families who are interested in adopting boys are strongly encouraged to apply for America Worldâ€™s Russia program.
