Holt’s Korea program continues to be one of our most stable and predictable adoption programs. While they wait for adoptive families, most children in Korea live with foster families, which provide the attentive, nurturing care they need to reach developmental milestones. Families in process to adopt also receive excellent medical information and frequent updates about their child. Most of the children who need families in Korea are younger with minor special needs. There are more boys than girls, and a family will need to be open to either gender. Could a child be waiting for you in Korea?
Recently, the Chinese government issued a new regulation requiring registration in order for international NGOs like Holt to provide services in China. Holt was among the first 20 organizations, and one of the only adoption agencies, that received approval of registration — licensing us to continue providing services, including adoption, foster care, medical support and family strengthening for orphaned and vulnerable children across China. Because of this development, Holt is now one of the only agencies in China whose staff can also directly visit children in orphanage care, which enables us to more effectively advocate on their behalf. Contact us to learn more about the impact of registration, and whether the China program might be a good fit for your family.
The Haiti program is now accepting applications for families open to adopting children ages 3+! Families open to adopting siblings or children ages 6+ may be able to receive referrals more quickly. Does the Haiti program seem like a good fit for your family? Learn more about the program requirements before applying. Also keep in mind that we can only accept a limited number of families for the Haiti program, so don’t delay!
