Child Adoption from Around the World

The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs provides help with information on how to proceed with an adoption in many specific countries.

Please remember that the laws of every country are different and in an international adoption you must meet the laws of the country the child is coming from, the laws of your country of residence, the laws of your state of residence and the requirements of the Hague Convention.
