Eastern Europe Waiting Children
As an individual considering becoming a parent to one of these special needs children, I recognize the need to keep confidential any photographs, videos, or any other identifying information I may receive while inquiring about a child’s individual file.
I will not publicly “share” any child’s photograph, video, or child information with anyone or at any time engage in such activity. I will not speak negatively about these children nor post any negative comments on blogs, websites, or other media outlets that would in any way be seen as derogatory.
I understand that there is no identifying information (ie. Birth Name, Complete Date of Birth, Country of Origin, etc) available on this site for any child. This will be provided at time of referral.
In the event I breach any of these terms, I understand that Children’s House International may, in its discretion, discontinue its relationship with me resulting in my adoption being stopped, and I also understand any fees paid to that point will not be refundable. Children’s House International may, in its discretion, also file a court suit against me for breach of this confidentiality statement.
After submitting this confidentiality agreement, you will be redirected to a webpage with information on each waiting child currently available for adoption through Children’s House International along with video links if available.
Submitting this statement of confidentiality does not necessarily indicate that your family meets all of the requirements to adopt. We will review the specific parent requirements with a CHI case manager, and contact us if you have any questions by calling 360-383-0623.
