UPDATE: Kyrgyzstan Moratorium
Radio Free Europe reported on May 7, 2011 that the Kyrg government has lifted the moratorium on intercountry adoptions which has been in effect since February 2009:
The lifting of the ban comes on the heels of an official US visit to Kyrgystan by DOS Special Advisor on Children's Issues, Ambassador Susan Jacobs, on February 14, 2011. The purpose of Ambassador Jacob's visit was to advocate for intercountry adoptions and the processing of the 65 cases in process prior to the moratorium. http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2011/02/156030.htm
The US DOS has not yet confirmed the lifting of the moratorium, please refer to the adoption.state.gov website for updates and confirmation. PEAR will post any DOS public announcements as they are made.
