International Adoption Services

International Adoption Services

Golden Cradle Adoption Services serves as a supervised provider agency that facilitates the adoption of children from all over the world. As prospective parents wishing to adopt internationally, you will contract with a Hague-accredited adoption service provider (ASP). The ASP supervises Golden Cradle Adoption Services regarding the specific international requirements necessary for your adoption.

Your ASP does not need to be an agency in New Jersey. If you are interested in adopting internationally and live in New Jersey, your family must obtain an approved home study completed by a New Jersey licensed agency. After placement is made, visits are required again by personnel from a New Jersey licensed agency. Experienced in the international adoption process we can complete those requirements for you in a positive, seamless manner.

An international home study must include specific elements: child abuse clearances, state and federal fingerprints, medical histories, employment histories, financial disclosures, and personal and professional references. A home visit is also required.

Once your home study is complete, it is notarized and sent to you and to your ASP to become part of your dossier in order to be approved as prospective adoptive parents. The ASP will assist you in being matched with a child, adopting that child in the country of his/her birth, and bringing the child home to New Jersey.

Contact us when you and your new child return to New Jersey to complete the post-placement visits which are required. When these visits are complete the adoption of your baby can take place in New Jersey no earlier than six months from the time the child arrived in the United States.

International adoption is a wonderful experience, but conditions in international countries can affect inter-country adoptions. We encourage you to update and educate yourself regarding these matters by consulting the United States Department of State website. 

We offer many adoption options for international adoptions. Each option has distinct costs and fees associated with it. We believe the cost of our services is competitive and closely linked with the quality of service delivery.
