Bulgarian agencies and the Ministry of Justice provide updated, comprehensive information about each child to prospective adoptive families and to families matched with a child. The children in Bulgaria have access to a wide range of programs to aid in their development. Once matched our partners are happy to work with families to maintain contact with their children and facilitate bonding during trips.
