Waiting Children

Every child deserves a family. 

In New York and around the world there are infants and children waiting for the love and stability of an adoptive family. All the children profiled below are part of our Special Needs or International Adoption programs- Spence-Chapin has eliminated our Professional Services fee for these adoptions. The children listed here are in immediate need of an adoptive family.

International Waiting Children

Why aren’t there photos for all the children?

We take children’s privacy very seriously! We don’t publically use a child’s photo unless we have permission from their guardian. We are happy to share photos and videos of these children to families who email us about international adoption.
