Romania's prime minister on Thursday rejected U.S. calls to allow adoptions by foreigners of about 1,000 Romanian children. About 200 U.S.families and 800 European families had filed paperwork to adopt Romanian children before 2004, when Romania enacted legislation that effectively bans all foreign adoptions, except for close relatives of the child. The U.S. has asked Romania to exempt about 1,000 children from that ban. Source: AP, chron.com. For more information, please click here (last visited December 24, 2005, reo).
