EPs are moving!

Yipee! Heard some good news from some adoptive families today and a few have received EPs. This is following the devastating news in June that there would be no more EPs issued by the Korean government for the remainder of the year.

Here's a link with some details on the EP movement: The EP process has started to flow again in Korea

MPAK's site also had the best information on the EP halt that I had read anywhere. Read that post HERE.

Here's also a few other random links I found recently, detailing the policy changes from Korea that could affect international adoptions.

Korean Unwed Mothers Support Network--details on the new One Parent Family Support Law. Article 20 is particularly interesting:
"Adoption agency are not allowed to establish or run maternity homes from July 1, 2015. Unwed mothers’ homes that are currently run by adoption agencies should be closed or changed into social welfare facilities for one parent families by the aforementioned date. "
Bethany Christian Services' blog

Hoping that those waiting families will be able to bring their children home soon and thankful that the Korean government has been able to move the process forward again.

  1. Thanks for posting these links about adoption/single parent support law. I have been doing some (not very good) internet searches and haven't found much. Rights for single parents are so close to my heart: I was raised by a single mom and these are basic rights that need to be in place. It pains me to think this is one factor that birth mothers take into consideration when contemplating adoption. Anyway, thanks again. It will be interesting to see how some of these laws are implemented.
