Regarding adoptions from this foreign country:
U.S. citizens wishing to adopt a child from Thailand should be aware that such an adoption is a complex and lengthy process which may take up to two years to complete. All adoptions in Thailand must be processed through the Child Adoption Center of the Department of Public Welfare (DPW), which is the sole governmental social welfare agency responsible for adoption of Thai children.
For complete information and application forms, prospective adoptive parents should contact one of the above agencies or DPW directly at:
