159 Congolese Children Released To Adoptive Families
According to News Ghana, 159 Congolese children whose adoptions have already been legally finalized will now be released for unification with their adoptive families. Additionally, the “government is working to resolve the remaining cases and establish new procedures for future adoptions that ensure the safety and well-being of our children,” said H.E. François Balumuene, the DRC Ambassador to the United States, in a statement that was copied to News Ghana. In that same statement, he went on to say that legislation has been drafted specifically to create new oversights and verifications of properly qualified adoptive families for the children who need loving homes.
