Holt's History in Mongolia...
In 1997, representatives from Mongolia approached Holt for assistance with child welfare services. Two years later, Holt began serving homeless children in Ulaanbaatar through a partnership with the Mongolian NGO the Naidvar Center. Holt also established ties with the Infant Sanitorium (IS), Mongolia's primary government care center for abandoned children under three. Together, IS and Holt developed the Rainbow Special Baby Care Unit, providing at-risk infants and toddlers with the proper nutrition, medical care and nurture they needed to recover and thrive.
Mongolia Adoption

Adoption in Mongolia Today...
While domestic adoptions continue, intercountry adoptions have stalled, creating a backlog of dossiers.

As intercountry adoption becomes a more efficient and inclusive process, more children from Mongolia will be able to join families in the U.S. In the coming years, we also hope to expand services beyond Ulaanbaatar.

Currently, Holt's Mongolia program is not accepting applications. Please check eligibility guidelines for status of accepting new applications.

The Children Who Wait...
On average, children are between 2 and 7 years old at time of placement. Both boys and girls are available.
