Armenian Adoption US State Deparment another "ALERT"

One can only guess why the Armenian Adoption Authority had to release another "ADOPTION ALERT" for Armenia.   She is up to her old tricks giving misinformation, and her former friend that now works for her former employer is blabbing all of the secrets and lies. 
So read and heed and remember if any adoption agency claims to "having staff" in country refers to "having an office" in Armenia its all a LIE.  July 2014 Hague is going to require that the in country facilitator that also IDENTIIFIES the child be Hague accrediated to the SAME standard as the ASP they provide services for.  No more can the ASP (Adoption Service Provider) turn their head and claim ignorance.  

Reminder: Adoption Processing in Armenia
May 12, 2014
This Adoption Alert is a follow up to the Alert of March 13, 2014
The U.S. Embassy in Yerevan has received reports that prospective adoptive parents are being given misleading information about the adoption process in Armenia.  Specifically, there may be misleading information as to who is authorized to provide adoption services and which children are eligible for intercountry adoption.  
Please note that Armenian law does not authorize professional facilitators, adoption agencies, or attorneys to provide adoption services in Armenia; it allows prospective adoptive parents and adoption service providers to grant a power of attorney to an individual to handle most aspects of the adoption process on their behalf.  These individuals can only provide limited legal services and complete the process in Armenia through direct contact with the Ministry of Justice.
Contact information for the adoption authority and the U.S. Embassy in Armenia is listed below:
