South Africa

In South Africa, Holt International works alongside local partner Wandisa to help children join families through in-country or international adoption.

In South Africa, children waiting for families are typically between 2-8 years old at the time they join their adoptive families and have minor to major developmental, physical or emotional special needs. Holt is one of three U.S. adoption agencies approved to unite children from South Africa with eligible families in the U.S. Read more about Holt’s South Africa program, including stories by families who have adopted from South Africa!
