The Georgian Parliament is preparing a new child adoption law that would make procedures more difficult for foreigners to adopt children but easier for Georgian citizens. The proposal is an effort intended to promote local adoptions. Under the proposal, foreigners will be able to adopt a child only if the ministry is unable to find a suitable family inside the country. According to 2005 statistical information, 75 percent of adopted children are taken out of the country. Source: Keti Sikharulidze, The Messenger, messenger.com.
