Sierra Leone Adoptions

The Sierra Leone adoption program remains open but due to the ebola epidemic, the adoption process has slowed. Expect delays in court hearings and any travel associated with the adoption trip or travel to regions within the country. In all cases our primary focus will be on safety for the children, in country staff and our families.

Waiting Children

Many beautiful children in Sierra Leone are waiting for loving permanent families. Adopt Abroad Inc. is committed to helping these children find their forever families through adoption.

All the children are legally free for adoption and in the majority of cases have no living relatives able to support them. The children from Sierra Leone are available for adoption primarily due to severe economic circumstances. This along with the impact of a long drawn out civil war as well as HIV, and the devastation of various other medical and health issues has created a large population of children who are in need of safe, loving adoptive families.

The children are available from toddler to 16 years of age.

All the children receive the regular physical evaluations and are tested for HIV, hepatitis B and other diseases. Adopt Abroad Inc. will provide all the medical information that is available. The majority of the children were being cared for at the orphanage, although a few are being care for in private foster care settings.

Photos medical reports background information will be provided to the prospective adoptive parents. Applicants should fill out our application form begin the process of becoming adoptive parents for child from Sierra Leone.

Adoptive Family Requirements

The Sierra Leone adoption program is open to married couples and single women.

It is possible to adopt more than one child in a single adoption process. Sierra Leone adoptions are fairly liberal regarding the age of adoptive parents on average adoptive applicants should be within 25 to 55 years of age. In the case of a married couple, one partner must be at least 25 years old. Adoptive Parents must be a minimum of 21 years older than the child they wish to adopt. Adoptive parents who are over 50 years of age must be more flexible regarding the children and their ages.

The Adoption Process

Upon receipt of your adoption application, Adopt Abroad will send the adoptive parents more information on the program and the waiting children. The adoptive family will need to complete an adoption dossier and submit information regarding the child they are seeking to adopt from Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone adoptions can be done in one trip. One parent is required to travel to attend the court hearing for the adoption. Adopt Abroad Inc. does not use escorts for any of its adoptive programs as we feel this is the parental obligation.
