US Kids Adoption
“Adopting From US Kids” Webinars: (Pre-Recorded) (Future)
Finding homes for children in U.S. Foster Care
If you want to adopt a child from the United States, WACAP can help. Families — couples and singles — living in Oregon and Washington are waiting less than a year, and sometimes only a few months, for their child to join their family. Since 1976, WACAP’s team of adoption experts has helped over 2,000 adoptive families welcome their children home. If you’re eager to expand your family, this may be the right adoption choice for you.
about the children
WACAP can help you welcome a child, from infancy to 18 years old, into your life. These children are currently in state foster care in Washington, Oregon, and other states, waiting for their forever family.
If you live in Washington or Oregon, WACAP can help you adopt a child of any age. If the child is age 3 or younger, it’s likely the placement will be foster to adoption, which means you’ll serve as the child’s foster parents until the child becomes legally available for adoption. If you’re open to adopting more than one child, you can adopt siblings who are waiting to join a family together. Some U.S. waiting children have physical, emotional or developmental concerns, while others have experienced neglect or abuse in their past. But each child’s greatest need is for a permanent home with a loving family.
You can meet some of these children and learn more about them every week through WACAP’s A Family for Me program.
Families Who Live Outside of Oregon or Washington
If you live outside of Oregon or Washington, WACAP can also work with you to adopt a child. These children tend to be older than 8 or have a more complex medical or developmental need, or you may be able to adopt children who are part of a large group of siblings. Nationwide, there are many children waiting to be adopted, and we’ll help you find the right child, or children, for your family.
“We feel like we are a living advertisement for WACAP's waiting children. Our kids are so awesome and everyone wants to hear their story.”—Jill
