we adopted our son from Korea last August. Our agency, Holt International, sent out an email on Friday saying that they are "urgently" looking for families for their Korea program. They have more kids coming into care than families who want to adopt them :-( The Korea program is going through some changes now... but its still an awesome program! They use mostly foster families rather than orphanages so the kids are with a fmaily in a home environment while they wait to come home to you. our sons foster family took him to Gymboree classes, out to eat, to the playground... They also have medical care that its on par with here in the US. They go for monthly check ups while you're waiting to travel,and you get all of those reports (everything from their height and weight to what they're eating to how many blocks they can stack). our son came home so happy, healthy, and adjusted so well because of all of this. its expensive- but there are grants and tax credits that help with that :-) so- if you or anybody you know is thinking about international adoption, check out the Holt International Korea program :-) AND of course feel free to PM me or post back with any questions!
ETA: this kinda sums up the whole email
"We recognize that uncertainties can always be a little intimidating. We do not ask this of you lightly. First and foremost, we want to make clear that while we are entering a new reality for Korean adoption, our program is still strong, and still moving. And, most importantly, children are still coming home to families! "
