Concerning to international adoption, the countries of the world are separated into two categories: Hague Convention Countries and Non-Hague Convention Countries. A Hague Convention Country is one bound by an international treaty entitled Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Inter country Adoption. This treaty was ratified at the Hague in 2007, and became known as the Hague Convention.
The Hague Convention establishes stringent requirements between participating countries that insure that an adoption is in the best interest of the child being adopted and to help prevent child trafficking.
For an overview of the different processes for adopting a child who lives in a Hague Convention Country compared to adopting a child that lives in a Non-Hague Convention Country, visit the following site for more information: http://adoption.state.gov/hague_convention/hague_vs_nonhague.php
Currently there are 81 countries that are members of the Hague Convention, including China, Dominican Republic, India, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey.
