This week, one family successfully passed through their court appointment and are waiting out the 10 day waiting period before coming home with their little girl. One family came home from Russia this week with their son and one family left for Russia and is preparing to have court next week. 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.
