The Bulgarian Ministry of Justice released a list of accredited organizations to mediate intercountry adoptions on June 20, 2011.

PEAR recommends that prospective adoptive parents use only those agencies that are accredited under the US Hague Regulations (http://adoption.state.gov/hague_convention/agency_accreditation/agency_search.php) who work with one of the agencies accredited by the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice. We also highly recommend that prospective adoptive parents thoroughly research any agency before signing a contract. A guide to researching agencies can be found on our website: www.pear-now.org, select "Projects & Positions", scroll to Guide to Researching US Adoption Agencies.
