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 South Africa, we invite families like yours to adopt them.

Since 2009, many children have found loving families in the United States. We partner with Wandisa and Wybrow Oliver Attorneys in our international adoption work in South Africa.

Waiting Children

Most children available for adoption from South Africa are between 4 and 12 years old and have been living in orphanages. A few children may be younger.

Boys, girls, and older sibling groups are all in need of loving homes. Parents may request the gender of their child.

*Due to privacy reasons, we are unable to show information about the waiting children from South Africa.
