Founded in 1998, ECAS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Minnesota licensed adoption agency. We are one of the first American international adoption agencies to be granted full Hague Accreditation in 2008.   Our experienced and compassionate staff has successfully united hundreds of orphan children with loving American families. 

In January 2015, ECAS went through a name change from European Children Adoption Services to Embracing Children Adoption Services so to better reflect the mission of finding families for children from many different countries around the world as well as domestically.  ECAS now has direct placement programs in Ukraine,  Bulgaria, Sierra Leone and Uganda. ECAS has a strategic partnership agreement with New Beginnings Family and Children's Services in NY for placement for their China program.  ECAS also assists with Relative adoptions.

We offer one of the least expensive quality Hague homestudy in Minnesota with experienced social workers.

ECAS can place a child in any state in the US as well as with US citizens abroad. We can offer home study services through our partners in the following states: NY, NJ, PA and FL.

With over 100 years of combined experience, our social workers are dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of qualified American families who long to parent an orphan from another country.  Our team in the U.S. and abroad will assist and guide you through every step of the adoption journey while providing personal support and individual attention to your specific needs. 

All of our experienced and compassionate social workers have adopted internationally, they understand the process first hand and will walk alongside you throughout the entire adoption journey and beyond. 

Our caring team would be honored to have the opportunity to be your partner in adoption.
