Remembering While We Wait: January 22, 2013 ARTICLE 5 TIMES 2

We woke up to our Article 5 letters for both children via email from the U.S. Embassy in D3lhi! The letters were issued on January 18, 2013.

Article 5

An adoption within the scope of the Convention shall take place only if the competent authorities of the receiving State –

a) have determined that the prospective adoptive parents are eligible and suited to adopt;

b) have ensured that the prospective adoptive parents have been counselled as may be necessary; and

c) have determined that the child is or will be authorized to enter and reside permanently in that State.
