Welcome to
Adopt International

Adopt International is a non-profit adoption agency licensed throughout Hawaii and California.


Our agency was founded on the principals of education and inclusiveness and has always been a progressive agency with the highest standards. We believe women should be empowered to make the best decisions for themselves and their children in a supportive and non coercive environment.


We are committed to building families through ethical domestic and international adoptions and believe all children deserve permanency, love and families. Our staff is here to guide and support you throughout the entire adoption process.

Our mission

We recognize the rights of children in the United States 
and throughout the world to find a loving, 
permanent family who will meet her or his 
individual needs.


Our staff is committed to providing 
professional, comprehensive services 
with an emphasis on meeting and 
responding to the needs of our 
culturally diverse community 
while reflecting the changing 
adoption environment and providing continuous quality improvement, compassion, and generosity.

Considering adoption?

If you are pregnant and considering placing your baby for adoption, you deserve to have a respectful and positive experience. We will ensure you are empowered  to make the decisions that are right for you.


Our adoption counselors can:

  • Help you decide if adoption is right for you.

  • Support you in choosing to parent or looking at a kinship adoption.

  • Assist you in learning about OPEN ADOPTION.

  • Help you choose an adoptive family.

  • Advise you of your rights, and connect you to resources.

  • Assist you in obtaining adoption expenses.

  • Support you before and after your baby’s birth.


You are in control, and can choose what your adoption plan will be.

Ready to adopt?

Becoming parents through adoption is an amazing way to grow your family.

The path to adoption itself can be both challenging and stressful and we are here to walk you through the process step by step.

Our team has first-hand experience of adoption from many perspectives. We have the empathy needed to guide you professionally and compassionately along this journey.

Adopt International is a licensed California and Hawaii Adoption Agency. We can help you on your path to adopt a child.

Our waiting families

Many families chose to adopt after experiencing infertility. They feel they are in a stable place in their lives and are really ready to be parents.

We find that the best matches come when you and the prospective adoptive families have something in common…shared values, hobbies or dreams for your future child.


As you are looking through the families think about the things that are important to you. Adopt International only works with families who are open keeping in touch with you in an open adoption. All of our waiting families have been approved for adoption through a homestudy assessment. They have each completed background checks, meetings with a social worker, classes and a ton of paperwork.

You can choose the family for your child, interview them and meet face to face. We will also support you if you feel you need some space, but the door is always open.

We are a small to medium size agency which allows us to know all of our families individually so you can ask us any questions about the families below. We can help introduce you to a family of your choice or you can call them directly.
