The need for adoptive families for Colombia’s children is enormous. Close to 60,000 children are under the protection of ICBF. Over 8,000 of those children are legally freed and available for adoption.
The children in need of families are ages 8 and older and often have siblings. The greatest need is for families interested in adopting a child ages 11 to 14 who needs to be adopted together with their brother or sister.
Let us share with you William’s story. We met William on a trip to Colombia this spring when we visited the Amparo de Nino child home. William is 12 years old and has two older sisters. Unfortunately, he has been separated from his sisters and does not have contact with them. Like many brothers, he expresses concern over them.
The staff at Amparo de Nino has noticed that William’s focus is on the future. He hopes that he will have a stable and loving family to support him into adulthood. Described as an old soul, William enjoys math classes and playing soccer with his friends.
Does your family have the resources to help William thrive? We are looking for an adoptive family for William and many of the other teenage boys living in Colombia. Please contact us today at 212-400-8150 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about William. If you are ready to move forward with an adoption of a waiting child in Colombia, please submit an application today.
December 3rd is Giving Tuesday, a global initiative to inspire people to give back to the charities and causes that they celebrate. At Spence-Chapin, we work to connect children with permanent homes, deep parental love, and lifelong sense of security. We can help more children find homes by alleviating all financial barriers of families looking to adopt – but we cannot do this without you! Please participate in Giving Tuesday by making a contribution to the Spence-Chapin Annual Fund.
