40 years of international
adoption experience


Once a family submits a dossier, the next step is receiving the referral of a child. Each country has its own referral process and wait times. When a referral is received, Alliance for Children will present the information about the child to the family. Typically, families receive a photo and some medical information about the child. We understand the importance of this decision and offer our families guidance and support throughout the referral process


Traveling is an exciting part of the international adoption process, as families experience their child’s culture firsthand. Families should expect to travel at least once to the country from which their child will be adopted, though each country has its own travel requirements. Some countries require two to three trips and some allow only one parent to travel. The length of the trip(s) also varies by country. When you choose one of Alliance for Children’s adoption programs, our staff will assist you in arranging your travel, from guidance on booking airfare and in-country accommodations to drivers and translators during your stay. We also have a 24-hour emergency contact in case any issues arise during your trip.
