Vietnam Adoption Agency Program:
Faith International Adoptions
Vietnam Adoption Program Description: Please see our Vietnam page for information: www.faithadopt.org/home/programs/vietnam
Humanitarian Work in Vietnam: We have been assisting several orphanages with food, clothing, toys and athletic supplies, medicinal supplies, educational materials, water purification systems, construction projects, and financial assistance for extra caregivers since 2000, and most especially during the closure. Our director makes a trip to Vietnam at least twice a year to bring needed supplies and provide support. In 2006, we will be providing direct relief in the form of at least 8 installations of water purification systems in 8 orphanages, retiling projects in at least one orphanage, as well as several basic relief projects focusing on food, vitamins, medical supplies, and clothing. For more information, please see our relief work page: www.faithadopt.org/home/relief
Requirements: Couples and single women and men between ages 25
and 50 qualify for healthy infants. Both infant boys and girls are available
for adoption as well as older children. Traditionally boys are more numerous
than girls.While there is no specific limitation on the number of children
already in the family home, couples with 5 or more children in the family home will be considered by the IAD and the orphanage on a case-by-case basis. Parents over 50 may adopt, but the likelihood of a child 12 months or older increases. There are many children in Vietnam institutionalized with minor, correctable special needs. If you would be willing to adopt a child with special needs you may make this request. Please contact Faith for further information.
Cost: With the dissolution of the two-trip process, our estimated fees (for USCIS, homestudy, consulate authentication and translation fees, agency fees, all fees in Vietnam, and all travel costs) are near $20,000 for the complete adoption.

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.
