Wide Horizons For Children has helped thousands of families adopt newborn children in the United States through our US Infant Adoption Program.
This reliable and smooth-running program has been operating without interruption since the mid-1970s. Newborns of various races and ethnicities are available. Many applicants successfully become adoptive parents, usually in 12-24 months. The program is open to married couples and single individuals, including gay and lesbian applicants.
Applicants to this program must meet the following criteria:
Typically, children relinquished by their birth parents for private adoption in the US are newborns. These children join their adoptive family after discharge from the hospital shortly after being born. Infants placed for adoption are from a variety of social, racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Families registered in Wide Horizons For Children’s US Infant Adoption Program are eligible to be matched with expectant birth parents being counseled through this agency and through other placing entities with whom we partner.
Adoption timelines vary. Typically, expectant birth parents review adoptive family profiles and choose the family with whom they wish to place their child. This usually occurs before the baby is born. Although wait times have ranged from as short as one day to as long as 36 months, the current wait times average 4-12 months from the time your program application is completed. Factors that affect waiting time include:
You will be required to travel to your adopted child’s place of birth when the child is born, and you may need to remain in-state for two to three weeks until permission to return back home is granted by state authorities.
