Have you considered adopting from Southeast Asia?

We have a few long-standing adoption programs in that region, but two that stand out are our Philippines and Vietnam programs. Although smaller, they both have unique factors that might make them a good option for your family!

Adopt from the Philippines.

Adopt from the Philippines!

  • We receive very detailed background, behavioral and social information about the children.
  • Most children understand some English. 
  • This is an excellent program for Christian families as the central authority in the Philippines, ICAB, requires all families to be Christian.
  • Holt has been active in the Philippines for 40+ years and has a well-respected partner agency there.
  • The Philippines adoption process is a stable, predictable process with a short time frame from match to travel — about six months.
  • The family’s trip to the Philippines is relatively short — only five business days are required.
Adopt from Vietnam.

Adopt from Vietnam!

  • Holt staff in Vietnam personally visit the children to get child updates and photos.
  • Vietnam is a smaller program, which allows for more individual family support.
  • Eligibility requirements are broad and even more flexible for waiting children.
  • Single applicants can adopt as well as parents as young as 25. 
  • Holt has a long history of providing family strengthening, orphan care and adoption services in Vietnam — and continued to provide support to children and families even when international adoption was closed in the country.
