For Partner Agencies
The Nepal Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare has recently released its new adoption guidelines! One of the changes to the program is a new procedure being instituted for recognizing adoption agencies who seek to assist with intercountry adoptions from Nepal. As you can appreciate, there are systems that need to be put in place in order for the country to allow adoptions by “foreign citizens” to resume. We are hopeful that adoptions will likely resume within the next few months. When MAPS is able to re-open our Nepal program, we will only be able to accept a limited number of applications, given the nature of the program and the volume of inquiries we have been receiving. Families seeking to adopt from Nepal will need an additional element of flexibility, for whenever there are new adoption regulations implemented, there can be unforeseen challenges and/or delays that arise.
