Peru Temporarily Suspends Adoptions
The Peruvian government has announced a suspension of all domestic and international adoptions pending an internal review of adoption procedures and cases over the past five years. Peruvian officials say this review stems, in part, from concerns related to post-adoption reporting compliance. The Department of State is working with the Peruvian Central Authority to seek more information on the terms of the suspension and to address concerns involving adoptions to the United States.
