Dillon International was founded by Jerry and Deniese Dillon in 1972 to meet the needs of the thousands of vulnerable Korean orphans. Centrally located in the United States, Dillon International is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was the first licensed international adoption agency in the state.
Throughout our history, Dillon International has been actively involved in establishing intercountry adoption standards and policies both in the United States and abroad. The agency has helped to establish adoption programs in several countries, including a model foster care program in Korea. Each participating country in the agency’s adoption program has invited Dillon International to help find homes for their vulnerable children.
Since our beginning, Dillon has been an advocate for ethical adoption standards, earning us long-standing, esteemed relationships with U.S. and foreign government officials. In addition, Dillon International has helped to underwrite hospitals, orphanages and schools in Korea, India, China, Haiti, and Vietnam.

At Dillon International, we strive to provide quality services to our client families.
One tool we utilize to help ensure this is a client survey. We send an anonymous survey to clients at the time of their child’s arrival, and again on the anniversary of their arrival. We utilize this feedback to improve our services, including the modification of procedures and policies, as needed.
In addition, this feedback is provided to the Dillon Executive Director and Board of Directors on a regular basis.
While the surveys provide us with narrative on how we are doing, we also receive rankings, or grades, from our clients. A summary of our most recent grades can be seen to the right.
