Preliminary Application

Congrats on taking the first step in your adoption journey! 
AGCI’s Preliminary Application is provided at no cost and with no obligation in order to help determine which adoption programs are the best fit for your family. 
Upon submission of this Preliminary Application, you will also receive a password to view our Waiting Children page. The countries we work with require this process to help protect the privacy and security of their waiting children. Please note that over 90% of the children who we place into loving families never appear on our Waiting Children page. As we become aware of children in need of a family, we immediately work to match those children with the committed families who have gone through our application process. Our Waiting Children page is reserved for children who need a little extra help finding the perfect family.

Our Adoption Advisor will review your Preliminary Application within one business day and will reach out to you to answer any questions and discuss the next steps in your adoption journey.  Our Adoption Advisor is happy to share more about the children who we have recently united with families.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you!
