ICBF prefers couples be married a minimum of two years, or living together for that period of time and currently married, before applying. Children’s Hope requires you be married for one year before applying.

Families where one parent is of Colombian heritage can request a child 0-4 years old  or a young sibling group of two.  They should have no more than two young children living in the home at the time of application. Please call for more information.

Non Colombian families can request to adopt a single child 10 years or older, 2 siblings 0-10 years old, sibling groups of 3 or 4 any age or special needs children.

The parents age at referral will influence the age of a child ICBF approves for the family.

Families with health and mental issues will be considered on a case by case basis.
