Honduras Adoption


About The Children

Children waiting in Honduras for forever families generally fall between 4 and 10 years of age. There are many sibling groups, especially those with older children or more than two siblings. Children with special needs are also in need of families. Children are cared for in public and private orphanages.


Heterosexual couples between 25 and 51 years of age and married for at least three years may adopt. There should be no more than15 years between the adoptive parents and child (from the youngest spouse).
Single women between 25 and 51 years of age are permitted to adopt.
Parents must be at least 15 years older than the child.
No more than two divorces per applicant.
Honduras prefers referring children to families with 3 children or less in the home but will consider larger families on a case by case basis.
