America World had two families travel to Russia this week for their upcoming court dates. One family received a court date this week, and will be preparing to travel in April to finalize their adoption.
We have received news that another child who was adopted from Russia (not with America World) was killed by their adoptive parents who live in the United States. The past abuse cases of Russian children adopted by US parents has caused Russia to become more restrictive in their adoption practices for US parents. We do not yet know what affect this most recent incident may have on the adoption process for US families.
