International Adoption

congo family boysMLJ Adoptions is honored to serve children in need of families through our country programs in Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Samoa, and Ukraine. We may also be able to serve families interested in adopting from other countries not currently served by US Adoption Service Providers.

International adoption is an incredible journey, connecting a child in need of a family to the permanent and loving family that child deserves. We firmly believe that every child has the fundamental right to a family. We are grateful your family is considering providing the opportunity to a child in need. In considering whether international adoption is right for building your family, you will have a lot to think about. Chief among your considerations will likely be to select a country program that best fits your family.

The international adoption process can vary greatly depending upon the country you choose. Each country will have its own story and unique risks associated with it. In international adoption, it is important to weigh the risks and benefits of each country program. We are happy to assist you in determining which country fits your family by discussing the risks in adoption, characteristics of each country program and your own expectations. International adoption can be a long process with a significant amount of paperwork; it can be confusing and can change without notice. Our goal is that our families are as fully informed as possible about the adoption process and country programs we offer. Please feel free to contact us directly, as we are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. You may also request more information here.

Adoption not only changes of the lives of children, but also the lives of the rest of the family. We are delighted to introduce one of our courageous MLJ Adoptions’ Families who adopted from Bulgaria. They continue to be richly blessed by the children who joined their family through adoption!
