Adopting in Colombia
Colombia is a pioneer country in the issue of adoptions. The
promptness response, clear regulations, and control measures exerted by
the Colombian Institute for Family Welfare, the institution responsible
for childhood protection, makes Colombia the favourite country for
adopting families. Colombia has been ranked as one of the first
countries chosen by these families based on the comprehensive process
combining responsibility, efficiency, follow-up, and organization.
Families from all over the world come to Colombia each year in order to fulfil their dream of forming a family and looking forward to providing these children with love, protection and better conditions of life.
Colombia is a new country experiencing growth and a new perception. Characteristics such as kindness, encouragement, and new attitudes are the evidences that the country has changed. Furthermore, our passion for peace and development, for the promotion of the best of the new country is the common goal of Colombians and we are on the way to attain this objective.
The new Colombia is a safe country that welcomes foreigners with
kindness and solidarity. From their arrival to the country, these
adopting families feel they have the necessary support for the
completion of the process and the attainment of their objective. This
process is full of expectations. Both parents and children integrate
together along the process while the attorney initiates the proceeding.
