ALLIANCE FOR CHILDREN
COLOMBIA HERITAGE ADOPTION PROGRAM

The Colombia Heritage Program is open to applicants of Colombian descent. Colombia, located in South America, is a Hague Convention Country and adoptions are overseen by Colombia’s central authority, ICBF. Once a family applies to Alliance for Children and completes a home study, we will assist in filing for the USCIS approval and completing a dossier for Colombia. Our program coordinator will guide you through the process. We are able to assist families in all 50 states with an adoption from Colombia. The first step is filling out an application and starting your home study. If you live in a state in which we are licensed, we can complete your home study. Alliance for Children partners with agencies throughout the US and would be happy to assist you in locating a local home study agency if you do not live in a state in which we are licensed. Once your home study is finished, we will assist in filing for USCIS approval and completing a dossier for Colombia. Our program coordinator will guide you through the paperwork process. When your dossier is ready, it will be sent to Colombia for translation and registration with Colombia’s central authority. The next step is waiting to be matched with a child. Once matched, you will receive information about a child. Should you decide to move forward, you will then travel to Colombia to meet the child and complete the adoption in country. Our experienced staff will guide you through the process both in Colombia and here in the US. Below are more details about our Colombia program.
