Vietnam Signs International Convention on Adoption

The Vietnaemse government signed onto the Hague Convention today!

"This is one great step in the right direction. This does not however mean that adoptions are open again or that the US has approved US citizens to adopt from Vietnam at this time," verifies Nicky Losse, Children's Hope International's Vietnam Program Director.

Prior to Vietnam international adoption program's re-opening, Vietnam will need to launch a central authority and, unless the country ratifies the Hague, the US and Vietnam will need to sign a new adoption agreement.
