What to expect from the international adoption process
The Children: According to UNICEF, there are an estimated 153 million orphaned children living in the world today. These children need and deserve the permanency of a loving family, which may not be available in their country of origin. Typically, these children are:
- Toddlers or school age
- Either Gender
- Sibling Groups
- Children with a wide range of medical and/or psychological issues
- Children with developmental delays related to institutionalization
How Are Children and Families Matched in International Adoption?
The matching process between a family and child is called a ‘referral.’ The referral process is entirely country-specific, varying according to the requirements and process of each county. If you have questions about a specific country, please contact us and we will be happy to talk with you.
Timeline for International Adoption
The timeline for international adoption varies according to the country, as it is impacted by governmental change, political issues, and social and natural events. The timeline is also affected by the type of child you hope to adopt. For example, families adopting children with special needs generally move through the adoption process more quickly. If you need information about a specific country’s timeline, please contact us – we will be delighted to help you!
