Focusing on finding families for  older children in Poland

There are many  older children available for adoption in Poland.  Children ages six and up are considered “older” in Poland.  They are available for various reasons  such as: abandonment or neglect, death of parent(s),  finally freed for adoption by the court.

Adopting an older child  provides prospective parents with more information about the child’s medical history, his or her abilities, interests and personality. Older children can participate in activities with you such as hiking,  baking cookies, and playing sports.

This component of our Poland program focuses on finding families wanting to adopt older children.

Characteristics of children available:

Ages : 6 years  and up

Sex : female and male children

Sibling groups available

Process and fees:  see Poland Process

“No matter what age child you adopt,  it’s a bit like most of life - lots of wonderful moments mixed in with challenges that make you appreciate the good times”.

The children pictured on this web site are not available for adoption.
