Preliminary Application

Congratulations on your decision to explore adoption. This Preliminary Application is a free, no obligation service provided by All God's Children International to help determine which programs are the best fit for your family.  It requests some general information about your family so our staff can determine the best programs available to you, as each program has different requirements. If you would like to skip this step and formally apply today, please click here

Upon submission of a Preliminary Application you will receive a password to view our Waiting Child Photolistings.  The countries we work with require this type of process to help protect the privacy and security of their waiting children.

Our Inquiry Staff will review your Preliminary Application and contact you to provide our recommendations, answer your questions, and discuss the next steps toward building your family through adoption.  We look forward to serving you.
