AdoptUSKids For Families

Global Adoption Resources


These resources apply to non-military families residing outside of the U.S. They do not apply to U.S. residents seeking to adopt a child internationally. If you are a military family, please see our adoption resources for military families. If you are a U.S. resident looking to adopt internationally, please refer to the U.S. Department of State’s information on intercountry adoptions.

Both U.S. citizens and non-citizens living outside the United States are eligible to adopt from U.S. foster care.  VIDA (Voice for International Development and Adoption) is an agency that can assist you with the adoption process (licensing and service fees may apply).

For more information on international adoptions, please refer to the U.S. State Department’s information on intercountry adoptions. You can also contact us at or 888-200-4005.
