Where babies in international Adoption use to come from...now the choices are not there for Americans. If you want a baby via international adoption your best option now is Africa where Uganda has just opened up (but Morocco is CLOSED) Here is a map of where the babies in internatonal adoption came from. It is still possible to get a baby 26 months and younger in Armenia. It is about $50,000+ and a 4 year wait. Local Armenians get first choice but non-native Armenians pay more than a local. Remember this is just the USA that is banned from adopting in Russia, other countries are still very active with their Russian Adoptions.
