International Adoption

Considering an international adoption?

International adoption is an opportunity to create or grow your family and become the forever family for a child without one. At Adoption Options, we have been assisting families with the international adoption process for many years and offer an unmatched level of understanding and experience we are more than happy to share with you. Whether you wish to adopt a child presently without a family, or are looking to adopt a relative who does not have a permanent or safe forever home, we can help.

Adopting internationally can seem like a hard process to get through, but we are always available to answer any questions you may have either via email or with an information session by telephone or video conference call. There is no fee for discussing your options. Once you have made your decision, getting started with our application package will put you on the path to international adoption, followed by education seminars, meetings with adoption coordinators, homestudies, dossier preparation, match proposals and more. Again, while it may seem like a long process, we at Adoption Options are always available to help, empower and guide you.

International Adoption Success

A Tale of International Adoption

I was open to adoption since deciding to be a single mama. Local domestic adoption wasn’t an option, and when I didn’t succeed with fertility treatments I was so excited to learn of Interntional newborn adoption options from the US. I love the openness, that birth mothers get to choose who will parent their child, that everyone comes together, despite difficulty and loss, to love this child and forward move. I had a few very hard failures with two previous matches, but I trust in things going as they’re meant. Ruby is amazing! She’s so incredible, she’s mine… and it helps everything up until now feel a little more in place.

International Adoption Education Seminars

The cost for the seminar is $450.

This one day course is currently offered via video conferencing until further notice.

The seminar runs on Wednesdays from approximately 9:30 – 3:30

Please note registration gets cut off two weeks prior to the seminar date.

It is a requirement of the provincial government that all prospective international adoptive applicants attend an International Educational Seminar. During the seminar you will learn about the process, important issues such as institutionalization and attachment, have access to learning material, and will have the opportunity to listen to a family who successfully adopted internationally.
