Hundreds of thousands of children are waiting in orphanages around the world for forever famiinternational-adoption-optionslies.  Can you provide a loving family for an orphaned child?   


Boys and girls from infancy to 16 years of age are in need of families.  Children with the potential for normal growth and development (typical children), children with minor correctable conditions, and children with special medical and/or development needs are all waiting in orphanages for parents.  


You have many adoption options within inter-country adoption.  Currently, the most active international adoption programs are:

  1. Ukraine:  Boys and girls, 18 months and older, are waiting for families.  Children with the potential for normal growth and development (typical kids) are six years and older.  Children under six years old with special considerations are also available if you wish to parent a child with special medical and/or developmental needs.  The average process can take 9 to 18 months.  Family Connections, Inc. provides Primary Provider Services for families adopting from Ukraine!  The agency would be honored to support your adoption.
  2. The People's Republic of China's Waiting Child Program: Boys and girls, 18 months and older, who have minor correctable medical needs (e.g. cleft lip and palate, club foot, heart condition) or more significant medical and/or developmental needs (e.g. missing limb, visual impairment, deafness, chromosomal disorders) are waiting for families.  The typical adoption can take 9 to 12 months to complete.  The staff at Family Connections, Inc. are experts in the adoption of children with special needs from China and would be very happy to assist your family with home study and post-adoption supervision services.
  3. S. Korea:  Boys and girls, 18 months and older, are waiting for families.  The majority of children have the potential for normal growth and development.  Children with special needs are also in need of families.  Most families are waiting 2 to 3 months for a child referral and then it takes approximately 10 to 12 months to bring the child home.  Family Connections is pleased to provide home study and post-adoption supervision for families who wish to adopt from S. Korea. 
  4. Pakistan:  For families of Pakistani heritage, orphaned infants and toddlers are in need of families. The children are typically healthy with the potential for normal growth and development.  Most families are successful in adopting a child within twelve months. Family Connections, Inc. provides Primary Provider Services for families across the United States wishing to adopt from Pakistan.
