Special Advisor for Children’s Issues Ambassador Susan Jacobs Travels to Guatemala to Discuss Intercountry Adoption


Washington, DC

Special Advisor for Children’s Issues Ambassador Susan Jacobs is visiting Guatemala from August 21-24 to accompany Senator Mary Landrieu and officials from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services for meetings on intercountry adoption. Ambassador Jacobs and Senator Landrieu previously traveled to Guatemala in April 2011 to discuss pending adoption cases since the suspension of new adoptions by Guatemala in 2007.

The delegation will meet with government officials and nongovernmental adoption stakeholders to discuss the progress of pending U.S. citizen adoption cases since their April meetings. Ambassador Jacobs will also discuss Guatemala’s efforts to implement new intercountry adoption safeguards that would provide a path toward future adoption processing.
