I’ll just give an intro into how to choose a country if you are interested in international adoption.  It will vary from couple to couple but there are some restrictions that you need to be aware of before you get your heart set on a certain place.  Some countries have requirements for the number of years you’ve been married, health requirements and a limit on the number of children already in the home.  These requirements are often changing and/or updated so be aware of the changes.  Although we did not work with Children’s HOme Society they have an easy to follow chart that outlines all the countries they work with and the current requirements:

It is really well put together.  They also lay out the costs and average waiting period for each countries program.

There is a lot to consider but this may help you eliminate some countries and narrow your search.
