Does anyone know anything about Guatemala adoption and when that country will be open for adoption to the US? I found a website that said that they were hoping it would be open again at the beginning of 2009, but everything else I've found on it just says that it's not open right now, but doesn't say when. TIA!

I don't know, hon. There are conflicting reports online. If you contact an agency for more information on their international adoption program, you might get some answers that way.

Good Luck!!

Guatamala is still closed and most reputable agencies will not accept applications. Sorry.

When did they close? I just met a friend's aunt and uncle that adopted a little girl from there, she's 8mo old and they have had her for 2mos. BTW she is sooooooo adorable and lovey. They were worried about her attaching to the family but, she's fit right in.

I haven't been keeping up with most of it... but my gut tells me it will still be a while. If you are considering adopting from Guatemala (or any foreign country for that matter) please make sure you are using a reputable agency and do your research. Agencies that accept applications while the country is still closed are not reputable.

Thanks, ladies. We're not with an agency, yet. We're just in the beginning stages of leaning that way (towards adoption), since we have been dealing with infertility for 2 years. If we're not pregnant by the end of the year, we'll begin moving into the adoption process early next year. We're just starting all the research part of it now.
