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 Korea, we invite families like yours to adopt them.

Our long-standing relationship with our adoption partners in South Korea began in 1982. Since then, many children have joined families in the United States.

Due to the quota system established by the Korean Ministry overseeing adoptions, intake for the direct-referral South Korean program is currently full. Families open to the needs of a waiting child will be accepted on a case-by-case basis.
