Holt’s Child-Centered Approach
We believe that every child needs and deserves a permanent, loving family. What is best for every orphaned and abandoned child is, however, as unique as every child. When considering a child’s future, Holt always keeps the child’s best interest at the forefront of every decision. Holt International pioneered the modern era of international adoption, but Holt is much more than an adoption agency. We also develop and maintain programs overseas to give orphaned and abandoned children safe and nurturing environments in which to grow and thrive while we find their loving family.
- We were the first international adoption agency and our founders helped write many of the laws that pioneered international adoption.
- In most of the countries where we work, we are the largest adoption and placing agency.
- We focus on homefinding efforts for children with minor to more moderate special needs.
- Holt International is committed to supporting families and adoptees for their entire life. Adoption is a lifelong journey, so our role doesn't end when a child arrives home. We offer many services post-adoption, like counseling, adoptee camps or birth parent searches.
