We have just added two new 3 1/2-year-old children from South Korea to our Waiting Child program.
We hope you’ll log onto the Waiting Child site to read more about their stories. A Family Information Form is included on each boy’s page for families that would be interested in viewing either child’s file.
Because of the two Waiting Children’s special needs, we are open to families in all 50 states.
In addition to the two Waiting Children, we also are in need of families for the traditional South Korea adoption program. For the traditional program, children are generally between 7 and 10 months old at the time of matching and about 2 1/2 years old at the time the family travels, with a total process time of 18 to 25 months.
For the traditional Korea program, please see the list of states where Dillon is authorized to work.
For either traditional or Waiting Child programs, to qualify for the Korea program, only married couples are considered. Couples should be married at least three years and must be between 25 and 44.5 years old with no more than 10 years’ age difference between the spouses. For families who have adopted from Korea previously or for Korea heritage families, the age limit extends to 50.
Families with young children should be aware that a child adopted from South Korea must be the youngest in the family by at least 12 months.
