According to the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family, most children were adopted by citizens of Italy (140 kids beginning 2006), United Sates (81) and Spain (18).

According to the Ministry, aliens are better prepared for the adoption of not only healthy little children, but also kids of pres-school age, even of 2-3 and more brothers and sisters, or kids with developmental delays or health problems.

According to a recently signed order, prospective Moldovan parents must take a 2-day course of preparation to adoption and have interview with psychologist.

"Unfortunately, not everyone understands that the state's goal is right to ensure family education to every child left without parental custody, regardless of their age, nationality, parentage and state of health", specialists of the Ministry said.

According to them, in tote, 208 children were adopted in 2010 and 212 in 2009.

The Ministry said it will soon create a state register of adoptions. It will include data on adoptees and adopters both in the country and abroad, on prospective parents, on accredited foreign organizations authorized in the field of international adoption.

As of the end of 2010, the Ministry's list included 14.697 children remained without parental custody, of which 2,722 were registered in 2010. Thus, 3,549 of registered children have parents that are not able to bring up and educate a child (due to material problems, health problems of parents and/or kids); parents of 2,312 kids are abroad and of 2,017 - deprived of parental rights.
