Pros: For This Child knows the process well and has made good contacts in country so they can get updates when other agencies can not.
They did additional forst er mother training, medical screenings and provided updated photos every 2 weeks after we receiver our referral.
While in country they negotiate hotel rates that beat other agencies and had a driver and trasnlator who were available for local sight seeing tours....and they even had a baby seat when we travelled with our son.

Child from Guatemala City (Amatitlan), Guatemala
Cons: The only additional information I was looking for was assistance in paperwork after we returned home, like a check list for re-adoption, social security number, passport, and the other forms to fill out to get the original paperwork back fomr the US Gov't.
They knew the information when asked, but we were looking for a list of all of hte stuff that we didn't know we needed to know.
Reviews: FTC is known for their Guatemala program, and I would recommend them if guatemala opens again.
I am sure they will develop similar relationships with their Kazakhstan program.
They are also Hague accredited, which is a plus for the future.
