We believe every child has the right to a family and international adoption is the best choice for some of the 214 million children living without parental care in the world today.Engaging in the adoption process is a wonderful thing to do for many different reasons.

Not only are the adoptive parents making a difference in the life of the adopted child but they are enriching their own lives as well. Whether the prospective parents are looking to adopt because they are unable to have biological children or if they are choosing to adopt to bring a new special person into their lives, it is a process which is wonderful yet involved as well. The international adoption process has some of the same steps as domestic adoption has; however, there are some more steps included when dealing with an international adoption.
