Korean Adoption Continues Strong


Many changes have taken place with the Korean adoption program over the past year, and Korea has made good progress in implementing their new exit and court finalization procedures. We can happily report that since the new laws were implemented, AAC has welcomed home 20 children who have been united with their families, and more families will be traveling to complete their adoptions soon.

AAC’s waitlist for a little boy from Korea is currently very short.  For families living in Colorado, Washington, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah or California, you could be matched with a baby boy shortly after your home study is approved!

And at this time, AAC is opening our waitlist for a little girl from Korea.  The waitlist for a little girl is currently quite short; however, we can’t guarantee how quickly a family may be matched.

If you’ve been thinking about adoption from Korea, now is a great time to get onboard.  Just fill out a pre-application on the website to get more information!

Meet a couple of our newest little angels: Kain and Henry

KAIN: 

DOB: January 2013
This handsome little guy is Kain. He just turned a year old. He is considered a smart and cute little boy. He likes bathing and beating the water. He is interested in colorful toys that make noise. He is out going and not scared of strangers. He is babbling and making sounds like "baba" and "mama". He loves music and needs it sometimes before bed because it helps calm him to sleep. He is in a Foster home and loves playing with his older brother.
His special need is Post-Operative CHD (VSD & ASD) and, according to his hospital discharge records, has a left oblique inguinal hernia. He can not walk yet but he can stand up while holding on to something. They say he even likes to get in the walker and run around.

Could you be his forever family?

Kain's file is only available for families who have an active LID in China.


HENRY: 


DOB October 2012
This little guy is Henry and he is a year and a half old. He is a typical baby, loving to to be cuddled and tickled. He likes to play with toys, especially his rattle and musical toys.
His special need is inversion of both ankles and is going through occupational therapy. We do have updates on his sessions and a video of this little guy.
Henry's file is only available for review by families who have an LID in China.
Could you be this little one's forever family?
