Kids To Adopt Closing

We are very sad to announce that

Kids To Adopt will be closing effective Oct  31, 2013.

Due to a number of changes affecting international adoption, we are no longer able to continue operating the agency and will be closing immediately.

This has been a difficult decision for us and we know that many people will be affected by our closure. We wish to extend our sincerest apologies to those families that may be negatively affected by our closure.

We are very grateful to all our families that chose to work with us over the past 9 years. Our staff has been pleased to work with each of you and wish all of you the best for the future.

Answers to some general questions about hosting

Here are the answers to some general questions about our orphan hosting program! To get started, you will need to send us: a criminal background check, an abuse history check, a completed application, and a check for $295 to cover the application fee. We are looking at dates in the spring for bringing the kids over, probably in April or May. The estimated cost per child is about $3,000-$3,500. Families are responsible for the cost of the child’s transportation from his or her point of entry into the U.S. (probably Seattle) to the home and back to the point of entry. Families are also responsible for all the costs of hosting the child, including meals, entertainment, travel, and educational field trips. They children are expected to learn something about the United States while they are in the country! It is appropriate to take them places where they will be able to learn facts about our history, geography, etc. The children arrive with virtually nothing but an empty bag and will probably need to be provided with clothing. Single people and married couples may both host children, but the country we’re working with on hosting only allows married couples to adopt. Thank you for your interest and questions! Please, if you have more questions than what is covered here, either call our office at 360-695-1704 or email taylor@kidstoadopt.org. Have a great day!
