STATEMENT REGARDING RUSSIAN ADOPTION CASE
WACAP has placed over 1,500 children from Russia since 1995. To ensure the safety of each adopted child and a positive adjustment for their adoptive family, WACAP offers all of its families ongoing support and classes to help them with the transition of bringing a new child into their home.
On April 9, 2010 we were saddened to learn that a child adopted from Russia traveled to Moscow without his parent. We were alerted to this situation by our branch office in Moscow, Russia and are shocked and saddened by this turn of events. Upon learning this news, WACAP immediately notified all of the proper authorities. In rare cases of an adoption dissolution (1%), WACAP has always supported and worked closely with adopted parents to assist the child in moving into a new adoptive family.
Due to laws of confidentiality pertaining to adoption cases, we cannot provide any additional details at this time.
