WACAP is proud to be one of the largest and most experienced international nonprofit adoption agencies in the United States. The first child placed by WACAP in 1976 was a child from our US Kids program, who had been living in Washington state foster care. In 1979, WACAP placed its first child for international adoption from Korea. In the 1980s, we expanded our adoption programs to include Thailand and India. WACAP was the first U.S. agency to pioneer adoptions from China and Far East Russia in the early 1990s. We were approved to place children from Ethiopia in 2007, and since then we've added adoption programs in Bulgaria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haitiand Taiwan

"Our experience with you was wonderful! Tomorrow marks our one-year anniversary! That was such an incredible day, wish I could experience it again! Thanks again for helping us bring our little girl home."

Our staff maintains long-standing relationships and visits regularly with partnering institutions, organizations and governments overseas; and we work strenuously to earn and maintain all applicable licenses and accreditations.  At WACAP we stand by our reputation for fairness, safety, honesty and compliance with the highest legal and professional standards for adoption.
