Ukraine Adoption


About The Children

The children waiting in Ukraine for forever homes are children who are 6 or older, children with an identified medical need that are 5 or younger, and sibling groups of all ages. Children have special needs and developmental delays.


Ukraine only allows married couples to pursue adoption.
Parents must be at least 25 years old and have no less than 15 years of difference between parents and children.

Travel and Time Frame


Most families choose to go to the country 3 times as the process of the 3 trips is between 3-4 months. The first trip is around 2-3 weeks, the second trip (court) is about 3-5 days, and the third trip is approximately 2-4 weeks. Both parents must travel to Ukraine for an appointment with DCF and Court.

Time Frame

The time between referral acceptance and adoption finalization is approximately 6-8 weeks.
