Facilitating an intercountry adoptive placement

Updated: 01 July 2016

What's Important To Us

Every child deserves a family. When a family is not available in his or her country of origin, we will enable the child placed trans-nationally in New Zealand to thrive and to achieve a sense of belonging. We can best do this by preparing adoptive applicants to be fully aware of their role in parenting a child, not only not born to them but also not of their country or culture.
