This program is: suspended

Note: Due to program irregularities and instances of children being sold to adoption agencies, this program has been suspended until such time as new procedures can be formulated and agreed upon.

Visit the Adoption Directory for Cambodia Adoption Agencies and other professionals and services.

Information provided here will be updated as soon as new procedures are in force. In 2003, the number of children adopted by U.S. citizens dropped to less than half the previous year's total due to the shutdown, from 254 in 2002 to 124 children in 2003. These were generally adoptions that were in progress at the time of the suspension. Children available for adoption include boys and girls, infants and toddlers, healthy and special needs.
