Of all the places …

This month, Seattle’s International Airport brought WACAP’s Bulgaria adoption program manager, Tami Mason, face-to-face with someone she talks to every week. And the last person she’d expect to be meeting at the airport, if it had been any other day!

Rositsa (pictured above) works with WACAP’s partner-agency in Bulgaria, nearly 6,000 miles away from WACAP’s main office, but with just as strong a commitment to finding families for children who need them.

While vacationing with her husband, Rositsa had an airport layover in Seattle, which allowed these two colleagues to be in the same place … for the first time. Meeting for several hours about how best to support WACAP’s adopting families and help children find the love and stability they deserve, both were overjoyed. In Tami’s words, “Our visit gave us an opportunity to see the face behind all of the work that we do together.”

Let us know if you’d like to learn more about adoption from Bulgaria or about the other countries where WACAP works!


WACAP (World Association for Children and Parents) is one of the largest and most experienced international nonprofit adoption and child assistance agencies in the United States. Since 1976, we’ve placed over 10,000 children with loving adoptive parents and provided food, medical care and education to more than 200,000 children around the world.
