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. The children listed here are in immediate need of an adoptive family. We take the privacy of children seriously. We don’t publicly use a child’s photo unless we have permission from their guardian.

International Waiting Children

Why aren’t there photos for all the children?

We take the privacy of children seriously. We don’t publicly 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. Contact our team for passwords to view private photos of waiting children.
