Finding Homes for Children in Thailand

Since 1982, WACAP has found loving adoptive families for hundreds of children from Thailand, working with both the Thai government and a private government-licensed orphanage. Our team of dedicated staff is ready to assist you as you expand your family through adoption from Thailand.

About the Children

We can help you adopt a child from 15 months to 15 years old. When you adopt from Thailand, you can indicate whether you want to adopt a boy or a girl, but boys are most often available for adoption. Periodically WACAP receives information about children with moderate to more significant individual needs. At the request of the Thai government, agencies can’t post photos of these children, so let us know if you’d like to receive a listing of Thai children currently waiting for a family. You can also adopt younger children considered healthy by the Thai authorities; these children are matched with families who meet Thai guidelines, and WACAP may submit a limited number of applications for these children each year. We welcome you to contact us about getting started with your adoption from Thailand.

Adopting From Thailand

Married couples are welcome to adopt from Thailand.

If you would like more information about the process or fees associated with adoption from Thailand, or you have questions about your adoption application, please contact us

To adopt from Thailand, you must work with Hague-accredited homestudy and placing agencies.

WACAP is one of a select group of agencies accredited under the Hague Convention on International Adoption and is proud to be recognized for upholding the highest ethical, legal and professional standards.
