Overview

The Philippines accepts only a limited number of applications each year for healthy children who will be ages 2 years and up at time of placement. Many children are eligible for adoption through a Special Home Find process if they have a moderate or severe special need (examples include positive for Hepatitis B, partial hearing, global developmental delay, limb deformity, sight in one eye, heart defect), or are age 7 or older, or are members of a sibling group with at least one child age 7 or older. Several US agencies are also approved to hold hosting programs for Philippine children who are 7 or older and are eligible for intercountry adoption.

Children Available for Adoption from the Philippines: The children are of Asian/Malay/Spanish descent, and come from orphanages and foster care throughout the Philippines. The most common reasons for these children becoming available for adoption are social situations within the family, economic conditions, death of parents or a legal decision.

Parent Qualifications:

  • Couples married three years or more may apply;
  • 1 divorce each accepted
  • Singles may apply for children age 9 or older.
  • Minimum parent age is 27.
  • Parents must be at least 15 years older than the child to be adopted but not more than 45 years older than the child to be adopted.
  • Up to 3 children in family
  • 4 children considered on a case by case by basis

Travel: Travel usually occurs about 4-6 months after acceptance of the referral. It is preferable for both parents to travel, though one may travel alone with permission from the Philippines. All paperwork and processes are completed before arriving in the Philippines. Total travel time is usually 7 days (one trip only.)

Timeline: Application to placement: Approx 2-3 years.  Filipino heritage families are given priority for matching.  Childless couples may be matched sooner.
