About The Children
Children waiting in Colombia for forever families are 2 years of age or older, sibling groups, and children under 8 that have special needs. Due to recent positive law changes in Colombia, over 5,000 children are now available for adoption.
Colombian children come from a variety of ethnic groups that make up Colombia’s rich cultural heritage. These groups are Latino-Colombian, African-Colombian, and European-Colombian.
Colombian Institute of Child Welfare (ICBF) charges no administrative fees for adoption services.
