Adoption Agencies and Information for Colombia

Our Agency, Adoption Services, Inc. can help you with a domestic adoption, but we are no longer doing international adoptions due to problems that can occur in any international adoption. We are a fully licensed non-profit adoption agency that helps birth parents and families living in any state in the U.S. and we can also help U.S. citizens living in any foreign country. Since our founding in 1985, we have worked with thousands of birth parents and adopting families from all over the world and our overall satisfaction rating is excellent. We are committed to putting your needs first and to helping you in every way possible. Feel free to contact us or call (toll-free 1(800)943-0400) if you have any questions or if you want our guidance or help. All calls are confidential and there is never any obligation or cost to you for our help.

Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:

The government office responsible for adoptions in Colombia is the Colombian Family Welfare Institute (ICBF). Prospective adoptive parents are advised to fully research adoption agencies or facilitators they plan to use for adoption services and ensure that it is an agency accredited by Bienestar Familiar (ICBF). Colombian law allows for adoptions by a married man and woman and common law spouses of more than three years. Single men and women are eligible to adopt children over the age of seven years only and on a case-by-case basis. In practice, newborns are assigned to younger couples, and older children are assigned to older couples.
