Waiting Child Webinars

Waiting Child AdoptionWaiting Child Program Webinars

Waiting Child generally refers to a child who is legally available for adoption and is not matched with a forever family.  In most cases, the child is under the care of public foster care agencies or an orphanage.  Internationally, the child may be considered a waiting child because of various factors that could include developmental delays, mental issues,  medical special needs, emotional issues, or because they are part of a sibling group.  They are also classified as a waiting child simply because they are older.

In the U.S. the child will have come into the foster care system for a variety of reasons, which could include neglect, abandonment, abuse and/or some other dysfunction within their family environment.

We currently have waiting children in the following regions:
