Stay tuned for more details, as we hope to provide additional information later this year.

If you are an adoptee from Romania Interested in exploring the possibility of returning to your birth country, feel free to contact our Romanian Ties Program Manager, Ben Kaanta. We would love to hear from you and discuss how we can support you in reconnecting with your roots. Your journey is important to us, and we're here to help facilitate meaningful connections and experiences.

What is Next Gen?

Romania Next Gen began with the Ties Program reflecting on our commitment to heritage journeys over the past 30 years. As more adoptees enter adulthood and start families of their own, we wanted to present a program that was uniquely tailored to their desires for staying connected with their birth country. Traveling alongside other adoptees is invaluable. Our focus is on personalizing your experience, tailoring it to your interests, and emphasizing reconnection with Romanian culture and everyday life.

Join us on this meaningful journey, where you'll benefit from a supportive community of fellow adoptees who share similar life experiences. Discover Romania in a way that resonates deeply with your heritage and aspirations, while enjoying the camaraderie of a like-minded group.

Who would Romania Next Gen be for?

  • Adult Romanian adoptees, traveling solo or accompanied by those who are part of their lives.
  • Spouses, friends, significant others, children of adoptees.
  • Parents, grandparents, siblings, extended family—all would be welcome.
