Vietnam Adoption Agency Program:
Adoption Center of Washington
Vietnam Adoption Program Description: Binh Thuan and pursuing other locations. ACW provides pre-adoption classes and child care class. We prepare the home study for VA and DC residents, authenticate the dossier, and provide placement services and travel assistance.
Humanitarian Work in Vietnam: In 2000
through 2002, our work came in the form of direct donations to orphanages
of toys, monetary donations, and purchases of items such as a refrigerator,
air conditioner, and water filter machine.
In 2003, we gave a substantial contribution to complete the building of an orphanage in Binh Duong. It was completed in 2004. We have partially supported children in that orphanage with direct donations of money for food, gifts of toys, and books.
In 2004, we began our largest project in Binh Thuan in which we provided the funding for an orphanage for infants and toddlers. In 2005, the kitchen was completed. We gave money to build four houses for poor families. Fifty elderly have been given medications and one extra meal per day.
Requirements: Singles and married couples are permitted to adopt. Upper age limit is not specifically known at this time. Must be at least 25 years of age and meet USCIS income minimums plus income to support a child.
Estimated Cost: Vietnam will provide a fee schedule probably in the fall. Until then, we can estimate that the agency fee is $4,000, home study is $1200, and foreign fee will probably be about the same as previous Vietnam costs. USCIS fees and travel expenses are additional.

Information on this page is provided by the agency. By responding to questions for our parent support site, these agencies indicate their support for openess in Vietnam adoptions. We are not an agency nor does this listing represent our endorsement. I have spent many hours putting together this free resource to facilitate more open information on adopting from Vietnam and help parents make an informed adoption decision. I hope you find it useful! Please take the time to carefully research your adoption agency selection.
