Burundi
Adoption
Advocate for Burundi
Overview
The Burundi Adoption Program is a very new program (as of 4/21/2010). Burundi is a part of the Hague Convention. Families considering adopting from Burundi should be aware that new programs require great flexibility within families.

Children Available: Both boys and girls of all ages, including older infants, are available for adoption in Burundi. On occasion, sibling groups may be available. Children are generally available for adoption from Burundi due to abandonment, relinquishment by birthfamily due to extreme poverty or inability to care for child, or death of one or more parents and no immediate family is able to care for child.

Parent Qualifications: The Burundi program is open to married couples and single heterosexual women. Couples must have been married and living together for at least 5 years at the time of referral. Applicants should be between 30 and 55 years of age, with no major medical or criminal histories.

Travel: While only one parent is required to travel, it is preferable for both parents to make the trip to Burundi. You will stay in Burundi for at least 10 days, and be required to spend at least 7 days in either Nairobi, Kenya or Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to process your child's visa.

Timeline: Because this is a new program, there isn't a set-timeline for this program.
