“After a long struggle we thought we had managed to get everything in order for the Russian authorities but at each stage we seemed to be asked for something else, often without much information at all.  If there was a place to go to find such information, download the documents or get in touch with people who have done it before to get advice (which IAG provides) it would have saved so much time, expense and stress, maybe even a wasted trip to Russia” J & G Bucks

The site also has chats and forums where you can meet other people who have been adopted, are willing to adopt or have already adopted and can give you support concerning to this issue. If you have any doubt or question in connection with the adoption process, this site may help you to find the answers."


“This looks like an amazing website and is doing great work. I'm not in the position to adopt yet as I currently only have a 1 bed flat, but I hope in the near future I'll be in a position that will allow me to start this process and I certainly plan on using this site to help. Many thanks, the site is inspirational.” SB Portsmouth


And thank goodness for RUKA - it, and you all, have been lifesavers through the process! Best,  F & L
