Romania AdoptionFor over ten years, Romania was completely closed to intercountry adoptions. In 2012, Romania relaxed its laws, although in a very tentative way. Relatives and Romanians residing abroad may adopt regardless of age or marital status, but prospective parents without ties to Romania have no avenue to adopt.

For up-to-date information, visit the Romania Adoption page on the U.S. State Department’s website. Get parent-to-parent advice and support in the International Adoptive Families group in our online community, Adoptive Families Circle.
