Children's Hope Recieves Hague Accreditation!

We are thrilled to announce Children’s Hope International is Hague Accredited! Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!

Our Hague accreditation signifies that CHI meets an international standard of practice based upon a treaty, the Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Cooperation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption. The Hague Convention has been ratified by 2 of the countries Children’s Hope works with for international adoption – China and Colombia (and likely Vietnam when it reopens). The treaty establishes protection for children, birth parents and adoptive parents while it also endorses the concept of international adoption as a means for homeless children to receive permanent, loving families.

Join us in celebrating this great news! We will begin accepting applications in China and Colombia, effective immediately.

Since 1992, Children's Hope has created forever families for 341 orphaned children from Colombia and 4,036 orphaned children from China.
