About us

The team of ANIDO Association consists of highly qualified specialists with rich experience in the field of adoption – lawyers, doctors, psychologists, pedagogues and translators/interpreters. We are all honoured to be part of the wonder called international adoption – a process where children who were born in one country receive the chance to live happily in a home outside their country of origin.

Our team has been working together since 1998 – even prior to the ratification of The Hague convention by Bulgaria – and up to the present we have been helping children deprived of parental care to find their devoted parents and to live in a real family. The first children adopted with our assistance are already self-confident 14-16 year old teenagers, who are happy and successful with the help of their adoptive parents. ANIDO is proud of their success as well as of the fact that we have contributed to their happiness.

Here are some of the reasons for which you might decide to place your trust into our Association and to choose it as your representative in Bulgaria:

ANIDO has rich experience and collaborates with serious foreign partners and in our work we rely only on qualified professionals.

ANIDO will meet you at the airport; will accommodate you in a hotel; will take care about your trip to the institution, where your child is placed; will prepare all the necessary documents that have to be issued on the territory of Bulgaria; will ensure that the adoption procedure is finalized and will constantly be by your side till the time you leave Bulgaria with your child.

If, while in Bulgaria, you need to consult a specialist about the overall condition of the child you are going to adopt (physical, mental, behavioral and so on), ANIDO will assist you and will provide the best professional support necessary.

ANIDO strongly believes that the most successful international adoption is the one in which the adoptive parents have as most detailed information as possible about the child they are adopting. Therefore it is our goal to work with all institutions involved in the process in order to receive additional information about the child’s medical status.
