Once your dossier is approved by the Bulgarian government, you will be placed on a registry of adoptive parents wait list according to your age preferences for a child. Then the Ministry of Justice in Sofia, Bulgaria will identify a child based on your preferences for gender, age and health status. You will then receive an invitation to come to Bulgaria, meet your child and accept your referral. Once the referral is accepted, the Ministry of Justice will approve the adoption and forward your case to the court.
