Due to residency requirements, Uganda adoption programs have been quite limited; however, recent news is that the requirement that applicant(s) must have lived in Uganda for three years and fostered the child for 36 months has been lifted. Consult your adoption professional for details. In 2011, citizens of the United States adopted 207 children from Uganda.
