Apply now International Adoption

Welcome to our International Adoption Programs! We look forward to supporting you as you grow your family through intercountry adoption. We will guide you through each step of the process and provide ongoing training throughout your pre-adoption experience so that you can be as prepared as possible for parenting through intercountry adoption. In order to ensure that we provide you with relevant program information as well as a description of the common needs of children awaiting adoption in your chosen country program, we require that families attend our one-hour introductory webinar for your chosen country program before applying. You can attend such webinar live by consulting our events calendar and registering for an upcoming webinar (click here) or you can click these hyperlinks to watch our pre-recorded Introduction to Colombia/Colombia Heritage Adoption or Introduction to South Africa Adoption.

Once you have attended the Introduction webinar, we welcome you to submit your application! Please see the links below to download the application that is right for your family; there is a separate application for families who live in New York and a separate application for all other families. There is no fee to apply.


Spence-Chapin has partnered with the experts at Your Adoption Finance Coach to provide our families with free access to experts, tools and content that can take the worry out of financing your adoption. This service is available at no additional cost to families. Free financial coaching is available to families once an application has been received and approved for one of our adoption programs, including our domestic and international home study services!
