  Eastern Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In many sources the term "Eastern Europe" still encompasses most, or all, such European countries that until the end of the "Cold War" (around 1989) were under communist regimes or direct Soviet control, i.e., the former "Eastern Bloc".
The term "Eastern Europe" first arose in the 19th century and was used to describe an area that was falling behind the rest of Europe economically.
Europeans from the formerly communist-controlled countries tend not to classify themselves as "East Europeans" but prefer to include themselves in other groups, associating themselves with Central Europe, with Northern Europe, or with Southern Europe.

 Eastern European Adoptions - Adoption Encyclopedia
One reason is probably that many of the children are of the Caucasian race and white parents from the United States and other countries believe or know that it can be difficult to adopt white children from their own countries.
Another reason is the generous spirit of many adopters, who felt a surge of sympathy and love for the children abandoned to orphanages and wanted to share their home and family with those children.
Should that happen, it is likely that the plethora of intercountry adoption agencies will turn their sights to other Eastern European countries that may agree to the adoption of their institutionalized children who live in orphanages.
