Russia Adoption Agencies and Resources
Adopting from Russia
Adopting from Russia provides practical and up-to-date information you need
to know to adopt a child from Russia. The motivation for this website
is to give others some of that 'second time around' experience even though
it is only their first time. Everything you read here is based on
the actual experiences of people who have recently adopted from Russia
through a variety of adoption agencies. The site is continually updated to
provide accurate and current information.

Frank Foundation Child Assistance International
Frank Foundation Child Assistance International (FFCAI) was founded in 1992 in response to the tremendous need of Russian orphans. FFCAI's mission is to provide assistance to children in need throughout the Newly Independent States (NIS) of the former Soviet Union through an extensive orphanage assistance and adoption program. This mandate quickly expanded to include numerous cultural, humanitarian and educational programs that have benefited hundreds of children and youth throughout Russia, Kazakstan and Georgia.
