Adoption Agencies assisting with Child Adoption from Kenya

Adoption Agencies and Information for Kenya

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:

Kenyan courts are not institutionally biased against foreigners seeking to adopt children in Kenya. Although it still remains an issue, the courts are beginning to take a more liberal view of racial differences between prospective adoptive parents (PAPs) and the adoptive child. Kenyan courts view the welfare of the child as paramount in reviewing an adoption case.

The government office responsible for adoptions in Kenya is the High Courts and the Department of Children’s Services. The Department of Children’s Services can provide a list of currently registered adoption agencies with which PAPs may deal. The adopting couple must reside in Kenya with the child for at least three months before the legal procedure begins, the average length of the adoption process is about six months, including the three month residency requirement.
