We need families for Thailand!



It isn’t Holt’s biggest or most well known country program, but it is unique and might just be the perfect fit for your family! And right now, we are in urgent need of loving adoptive families for children waiting in Thailand.

Recently, the wait time for families in the Thailand program dropped to just 18-30 months from application to placement!

Most of the children who need families are younger, about 2 years old at time of placement, and healthy or have manageable/minor special needs. Also, many are living with a foster family that provides a stable environment for them to grow, the one-on-one attention they need to reach developmental milestones, and the healthy attachments that will help them transition more easily to a permanent adoptive family.

The minimum age for adoptive parents is 25, which makes this program a great choice for younger couples. They also accept families with up to one child in the home. However, these requirements can be flexible for families considering a child on the waiting child photolisting.

These children need the stability and sense of belonging that only a permanent family can provide. If the Thailand program sounds like it would be a good fit for your family — or you would like to learn more about children waiting for families in other country programs — contact us! We would love to help you begin your journey toward welcoming a child into your heart and family. If you have any questions or want more information, you are always free to contact Emily Lund, Holt’s adoption counselor, at emilyl@holtinternational.org.

  1. We have adopted two Holt children from Thailand. It was a wonderful experience. If you ever come across a family needing someone to talk to about the Thailand program or the experience of adoption from Thailand, please feel free to contact us. We would love to help! Feel free to give my email address out to other Holt families considering an adoption from Thailand or who are waiting to bring their Thai child home.
