If you're considering adopting internationally, you'll need to know all about the Hague Convention, as you will be directly affected by it. For starters, the full name of the Hague Convention is The Hague Adoption Convention on the Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Inter-Country Adoption. The name alone is pretty self-explanatory, but let's get more in-depth. Take a look at the important facts below.
Although these facts aren't all-encompassing, it's a great place to start if you're thinking about international adoption. The Hague Convention helps to make the international adoption process better streamlined and safer for all involved.
