Who Can Be Adopted from Lithuania

Vilnius Old Town.

Because Lithuania is party to the Hague Adoption Convention, children from Lithuania must meet the requirements of the Convention in order to be eligible for adoption. For example, the Convention requires that Lithuania attempt to place a child with a family in Lithuania before determining that a child is eligible for intercountry adoption. In addition to Lithuania's requirements, a child must meet the definition of a Convention adoptee for you to bring him or her back to the United States.
