Adopting from Korea - A Parent's Guide to Korean Adoption




Home contact site map agencies search site

A state-by-state index of adoption agencies
authorized to place Korean children

Here's the most current listing of US adoption agencies with approval to place Korean children in American homes. Click the agency link to go directly to their website or e-mail address for additional information (Phone numbers are listed for those agencies without electronic addresses.) These listings will change from time to time, but I'll be making every effort to keep the index up-to-date.

If there is an error or change you're aware of, please let me know!
