Korean adoption
 
Please note that our

Korean adoption program

is a network program, which means we can assist only families residing in Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana or Missouri with an

adoption from Korea.

 
adopt from KoreaAll Blessings International proudly partners with a very experienced and long-established child-placing entity functioning in the United States and South Korea for our 

Korean adoption program

. ABI works closely with Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana and Missouri families providing home study services and additional regular correspondence as they 

adopt from Korea

. Families apply to All Blessings International for home study services, as well as the partner agency for Child Placement services. Applications must be submitted to and approved by both agencies.

Korean law allows families meeting the following criteria to adopt:

  • parents must be between 25 and 44 years of age; age waivers for individuals up to 49 years of age are available to those of Korean heritage, adoptees of any heritage or those who have previously adopted from Korea
  • couples must have been married for at least 3 years
  • previous divorces are accepted, but more than one divorce per spouse is evaluated on a case-by-case basis
  • health history, including current body mass index and use of medications, criminal history and financial status will all be considered

Both infant girls and boys are available for 

adoption from Korea

, but males are more prevalent. Children are between 6-12 months old at the time of referral, as all Korean children are not available for international adoption until after they are 5 months old. Applicants must be open to a child prenatally exposed to a minimal amount of alcohol or cigarettes.

The current wait time for a child referral from Korea after a family is paper-ready is between two and three months, and adoptive parents can expect to travel approximately six to ten months later. Referral information includes as much detail as we receive from our overseas counterparts, including photographs with medical and social history. Updated information after acceptance of referral is occasionally available.
