International Adoption

Gladney's International Adoption Programs have successfully placed thousands of babies and young children in homes throughout the United States. These programs offer adoption opportunities in Asian and Latin American countries. Not only does adopting internationally assist families in achieving their dream of parenthood, but also fulfills the dream of children in orphanages and foster homes who await the love of a family.


Gladney has created several international adoption programs that provide adoptive families with opportunities to design their own adoption:

Hague Accreditation

As a leader in intercountry adoption, the Gladney Center proudly became among the first agencies accredited in the U.S. as a Hague-compliant adoption agency. The Hague Convention protects children and their families against the risk of unregulated adoptions abroad and ensures that intercountry adoptions are made in the best interests of the children. The Convention also protects against unethical, unlawful and inhumane adoption practices.

Adopting internationally is an exciting, enriching experience that offers the opportunity to learn foreign cultures and customs and the ability to assist in humanitarian aid efforts.

Advantages of adopting internationally include the option to:

  • Adopt through a closed adoption system.
  • Adopt within a specific time.
  • Select the age and gender of the child.
  • Adopt later in life.
  • Select a particular country or culture.
  • Provide humanitarian aid.

Whether children are here in the United States or in a foreign land, the Gladney Center for Adoption remains unwavering in its commitment to create bright futures through adoption. Gladney needs families who can secure these futures for the many children who are referred to its International Adoption Programs.
