Azerbaijan Adoption Program
As of April 26, 2011, Illien Adoptions International, Inc. has received approval from the government of Azerbaijan under the Hague Adoption Convention. Our agency is verifiably the first, and so far, only, US adoption agency accredited in Azerbaijan under the Hague. We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications!
Be aware of other US adoption agencies who are not accredited under the Hague in Azerbaijan and who claim to be approved by the Azerbaijan government. Ask for a copy of their approval from Azerbaijan's government authority.
In Azerbaijan the majority of the population is Muslim; however, this adoption program is open to prospective adoptive parents of all faiths. In Azerbaijan, there is no preference nor discrimination for religious affiliation.The Children Eligible for Adoption and the Parents Who May Adopt
Our Azerbaijan Adoption Program is available to American prospective adoptive parents who are open to considering a child with minor to major special needs. Considering our access to advanced medical care, and our modern cultural perspective, many of these special needs are comparably insignificant and quite manageable for a child being brought into a loving, conscientious family environment.
