Sending an annual
Post-Placement Report is the responsibility of every adoptive parent of a child
from Cambodia. Two of the documents required
in the dossier (for anyone who adopted after March 2001) were Post Placement
Agreements - one for the Dept. of Foreign Affairs and one for MoSalvy. The
agreement stated: "I/We agree to send yearly reports and photographs to the
Department of Foreign Affairs (and the Ministry of Social Affairs, Labor,
Vocational Training and Youth Rehabilitation) in the Kingdom of Cambodia, for
eighteen (18) years after the date of placement. I/We welcome the opportunity
to verify that our child(ren) are healthy, and are being provided all the best
love and care." .... these documents were both signed and notarized.
importance of sending these reports can not be over-emphasized.
If you adopted through an agency, your report can be sent to Cambodia through them. If you adopted independently (or have lost touch with your agency), you can send the report directly to: (Note: These names/addresses are the most up-to-date, verified in September 2004, after the seating of the new Cambodian government)
His Excellency Hor Namhong
An additional copy of the report should be sent to:
The Royal Cambodian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
