Peru is a relatively new and small program. Few adoption agencies work in Peru.
Children Available for Adoption from Peru: Agencies place children from the "Waiting Angels" Program. Through this program, hundreds of children in Peru are registered to be placed with families. The children are ages 5 years and older. There are healthy children, sibling groups, and special needs children.
Parent Qualification :
- Married couples should be between 25 and 55 years of age.
- Couples must be married for at least two years.
- Singles, between the ages of 30-50, are accepted for this program.
- Exceptions may be made to parent ages. Please contact a licensed agency for more information.
Timeline : After dossier completion until receiving referral, the timeframe is unpredictable / variable. It can take anywhere between 6 to 18 months. The timeframe varies based on the age, gender, and health status of the child requested.p>
Travel : In the case of an adoptive couple, both parents must travel to Peru to finalize the adoption. Stay in the country is approximately 4- 5 weeks. One parent may leave Peru after the court process is complete. During the stay, Peruvian social workers evaluate the child and family's bonding progress.
