This summer, families in California, Illinois, Iowa and New Jersey have the special opportunity to share their home and life with a child who is waiting to be adopted. Our hosting program is designed for families considering older-child adoption from Colombia. Please apply ASAP as spots are limited!
Many children in Colombia are waiting, right now, to be matched with adoptive families. For many children, international adoption is the only possible route to a permanent family.
Holt's U.S. staff will work closely with you throughout the adoption process. We want you to feel informed and prepared to adopt every step of the way. We go above and beyond to provide all the resources and assistance you need.
Holt's post-adoption services are second to none. From camps, family support groups, counseling and adoption-specific nutrition advice to birth family searches, citizenship questions and homeland tours, we stand by you for life — because we know that your adoption doesn't end when you arrive home.
Explore the average length of the adoption process, fees and expenses, parent eligibility and the needs of children waiting for a family.
Whether you are still gathering information or you feel ready to apply to adopt, we have many free ways for you to explore our programs or get started.
