Preliminary Application

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. This is our recommended first step for those considering an adoption. 

Upon submission of a Preliminary Application you will also 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 will 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.
