Roza speaks to us again personally on FACEBOOK

Amendments to the Family Code of the Kyrgyz Republic, children adoption Roza Otunbayeva on Saturday, April 23, 2011 at 3:42amDear sirs & madams,
I wish to share the information that the Kyrgyzstan’s Parliament has approved the draft bill “On implementing amendments into the Family Code of the Kyrgyz Republic”, which I am going to sign in the very nearest future.
This draft bill is a good result of rigorous and coordinated efforts of the Government and the appropriate Committee of the country’s Parliament. It builds up a firm base for our further cooperative work to improve the legal framework in this area.
The approved draft bill is also enabling us to complete adjusting the rules of international adoption, in particular to set number of regulations providing for procedures for accreditation of adoption agencies and adoption itself.

Dear adoptive parents,
Passage of the law on đÉmendments to the Family Code of the Kyrgyz Republic is an important step towards lifting the moratorium imposed by the former Parliament upon international adoption.
I believe that joined and tireless efforts will allow us to pass promptly all required by-laws in the field of international adoption, and enable to adopt children.
While remaining committed to do my best in achieving the mentioned objectives, I thank you once again for your patience and understanding.

Sincerely yours,
Roza Otunbayeva

Family Code... Baby Steps

Just a quick update... Yesterday The Parliament of Kyrgyzstan passed the readings of the Family Code. This is our first step towards getting our children out of Kyrgyzstan. Next we need Roza to sign the family code into law. We need someone in kyrgyz to sign off on the MOU that has been written and re-written by our DOS. We believe there may be a reaccredidation necessary for our adoption agencies. But "supposedly" all this is just a formality and all just need sto get signed.

Let's hope that the "formality" happens quickly.
