About the Colombia Program

Colombia is a Hague-certified country with a stable, efficient adoption system.  Bethany Global works closely with Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar (ICBF), the central authority for adoptions in Colombia, and partners with private orphanages including La Casa de la Madre y el Nino, CRAN, Chiquitines, and FANA. Due to a variety of factors such as poverty and violence, there are more than 5,000 children in Colombia who are in need of homes.

Once approved, families have access to more information about Colombian waiting children, including important details about the child, what is known about their personal story, photos, and videos (when available). Bethany's in-country coordinator has personally met and assessed many of the waiting children and is available to answer your questions.

Families of Colombian heritage may be eligible to adopt a healthy child of any age, depending on the age of the prospective adoptive parents.
