The previous reviewer may have had a very good experience two years ago. Times have changed and Genesis has not kept up. First of all neither Genesis or the company it works with in Russia, Amrex is accredited. They umbrella under an accredited agency. This may or may not continue to be allowed in Russia. Genesis is not good about sharing info. You are left to your own devices to get the complete story of changes in Russia. Also once you "commit" to a child and pay several thousands of dollars, if your adoption is not completed, at any stage, they will not refund your money. They also do not explain that commit is a relative term. The potential adoptive families commit but a Russian family can decide to adopt your child or a family member of the child can return for the child, again at any stage regardless of whether or not you have travelled and met the child. Again do not get a refund. Also do not expect any emotional support.

We adopted our two babies from Russia through Genesis Adoptions two years ago. They helped us through a very long and difficult process, with caring and expertise. We have two beautiful, happy, and healthy 3 year olds thanks to Genesis.
