Pathways to International Adoption with Spence-Chapin

There are so many considerations when choosing your pathway to adoption. When considering international adoption, prospective adoptive parents often wonder, “What are the steps in an international adoption?”, “Will I be eligible for the country program I’m considering?”, and “Are there differences in the common characteristics of children placed for adoption in different countries?”
