Vietnam Adoptions Rise Since Reopening

In a quarterly meeting at the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi yesterday, Children's Hope representative Thuy touched base with Vietnam adoption officials, in efforts to maintain a smooth adoption process in country. According to the government update, 780 children have come home to U.S. families since Vietnam reopened in January 2006. In April 2007, 120 children were placed. "I think this is the largest number placed in one month so far. Adoptions are really taking off in Vietnam," says Children's Hope Vietnam Program Director Nicky Losse.

Representatives from the 42 U.S. agencies licensed in Vietnam were in attendance. Eight of the 120 children placed in April were with Children's Hope families.
