Finding loving homes for children

We know that children grow best in loving, stable and safe families. When we're unable to find an adoptive family to adopt a child in Albania, we invite families like yours to adopt them.

Our long-standing relationship with our adoption partners in Albania began in 1991. Since then, many children have joined families in the United States.

Albania country requirements

Meet the children

Most of the children who are eligible for adoption in Albania come from small orphanages and range in age from 12 months to 15 years old.

Many of the children in our Albania program have minor to significant special placement needs.

Additionally, several families each year may adopt older children who have no identified special placement needs. In this case, you should be prepared to adopt a child who may be up to 9 years old.
