- Congo has prepared 69 children by foreigners can be adopted to provide exit visas. It is the first time since the government two years ago instituted a moratorium that adoption from Congo is again possible. That the Congolese Ministry of Interior said.
The visas are good news for adoptive parents in the Netherlands, who waited until their children were allowed to come here. Even families from the United States, France, Belgium, Canada, Italy and Germany can hang the garlands.
Congo proposed the moratorium in 2013 for fear that adopted children would be victims of abuse or trafficking. The government has also expressed concerns about adoptions by gay couples.
Despite the moratorium remained some judges in the land or granting adoptions to foreign parents, making a thousand adoptive families have been long in uncertainty.
The law lifting the moratorium, only needs to be approved by parliament.
