«The number of children’s homes increases from year to year. To reduce this trend, reforms in this system are needed, bureaucracy and red taping in the adoption system should be minimized so that children are placed not into orphanages, but into families, since there are many people willing to adopt a child in Kyrgyzstan,» stressed the head of state.
