Countries with Waiting Siblings

In many countries, local families can generally only afford to adopt one child at a time.  As a result, there are many wonderful sibling groups waiting for families in countries like Colombia, Poland and Ethiopia.  These children generally range in age from 3 to 13 years in age.   Siblings who have experienced the trauma of losing a birth family often have a much stronger bond with each other than siblings raised in traditional families.  They also have at least this source of healthy, long term attachment which should allow them to form a healthy attachment to their adoptive family in time.  While an older sibling may have cared for the younger siblings and resist giving up this responsibility until they have formed a trust with their adoptive parents, the bond they eventually form with their parents is often very strong.  Please email us for information about our waiting siblings!  ninat@chiadopt.org
