Last Updated: June 21, 2019

On June 17, 2019, the Intercountry Adoption Accreditation and Maintenance Entity (IAAME) suspended the accreditation of Adoptions International, Inc., licensed in the state of Texas, pending additional review.

During this suspension, Adoptions International, Inc. must cease to provide all adoption services in connection with intercountry adoption cases. Adoptions International, Inc. is required to transfer their cases to another adoption service provider.

The Department of State does not review or approve case transfer plans and has a limited role in their execution.
