mexicoChildConsider adopting from Mexico! 

Mexico recently updated its’ laws to become Hague compliant and adoptions are being facilitated in many Mexican states.  HATW is one of only 12 agencies in the US approved to facilitate adoptions from Mexico! Our staff have traveled to Mexico and met with both the US Embassy representative and our adoption attorney and her staff.  We were very pleased with everyone involved and excited to have our families enter this program. 

If you are interested in adopting a child or sibling group of Hispanic origin then Mexico is the program for you.  Children are over the age of 5 years or part of a sibling group where at least one of the children is over 5 years old.  Heterosexual couples, single parents, and same-sex couples who are legally married are able to adopt from Mexico.  Other children in the home are allowed and couples need only be married for one year.  After your dossier is approved in Mexico the wait for a referral is 6-12 months.  You will need to make two trips with 1-6 months in between each trip.  Each trip will last at least 3 weeks giving you time to bond with your child before their adjustment to a new country and new home.  The children are taken care of in orphanages with support of the government and private donors.  We’re very excited about adoptions from Mexico and look forward to finding families for these wonderful children!

If you are interested in knowing more about this program or getting started with your adoption call the international staff at 734-477-0135.  We look forward to helping you with your adoption from Mexico!
