After helping to establish a local partner organization, the Kaisahang Buhay Foundation (KBF), Holt began serving children in the Philippines in 1976. Working alongside KBF, Holt has helped to improve local childcare and adoption practices as well as find loving, stable families in the U.S. for over 900 orphaned and abandoned children in the Philippines. Most importantly, there are many children in the Philippines who are waiting for a permanent, loving family right now.
Holt has a highly respected adoption program in the Philippines with a stable, predictable process, short timeframe from match to travel, and a short time spent in country. Our long-standing partner in the region has years of experience coordinating international adoption processes, and the English-speaking staff are available to escort and support families during the adoption trip.
Explore the average length of the adoption process, fees and expenses, parent eligibility and the needs of children waiting for a family in the Philippines.
Whether you are still gathering information or you feel ready to apply to adopt, we have many free ways for you to explore our programs or get started.
