Adoption from Morocco is open to employed and practicing Muslims. It is expected that all applicants will take this country-requirement very seriously and honor the legal codes and culture.
Children Available for Adoption:
The children who are referred for adoption from Morocco are generally a few months old or older. The vast majority of babies and small children in Moroccan orphanages are born to single women, who, due to the cultural and societal norms in Morocco, are unable to care for their babies. The infants are usually surrendered for adoption at maternity hospitals immediately after they are born.
Older children and children with special needs are also in need of forever families. In the Morocco adoption program program, families may not request a child of a certain gender. Families must be open to infant boys and accept that infant girl referrals are very, very infrequent.
Married couples and single women may adopt from Morocco. The country does not permit same sex marriage, partners, or single men to adopt children from Morocco. There is no specific age restriction on the prospective parents, but a Judge does have discretion and will determine the suitability of each prospective adoptive parent as the age of the child relates. The prospective parents must be employed and practicing Muslims.
Adoption from a Muslim country can have a slightly different process from other countries. It is important to speak with a licensed and accredited adoption agency about this process.
