The Republic of Georgia adoption program was overhauled in 2003 and has remained stable since that time, although much of the process is unregulated. In 2010 , U.S. citizens adopted approximately 2 children from Georgia. Children available for adoption include boys and girls, ages 6 months and older, healthy and special needs. These children reside in orphanages and foster care.
