Uganda Child Adoption Program

Uganda Child Adoption Program

WELCOME TO UGANDA

Located in Central Sub-Saharan East Africa the very bio diverse country of Uganda borders include Lake Victoria, Kenya, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, and Tanzania. Civil unrest ended a few years ago and a country the size of Oregon struggles with a large population (over 30 million) that suffers periodic famine, chronic maternal childbirth deaths, disease, and casualties from prior civil unrest.

UGANDA PROGRAM SUMMARY

 

AGE REQUIREMENTS

25 years old; single parents must adopt children of the same gender (with the exception of siblings)

HAGUE

NO

FEES

$34,000 approximately with travel homestudy/post placement fees, assuming two trips.

WAITING CHILDREN

Contact us if you would like access to our secure waiting children page.

Adopting families travel to Uganda 4 or 5 days before their hearing with the High Court judge in Uganda. This gives the adopting parents and child time to get to know and be comfortable with each other before appearing before the judge. The judge grants the family a guardianship allowing the family to leave with the child for the U.S. where the family will retain an adoption attorney in their state to file and finalize the adoption through their local state court.

The total cost with two adults traveling and including agency, home study, immigration, orphanage support, travel and legal expenses is approximately $36,000 to adopt one child.

Children of all ages will be available including sibling groups of 2 or more children. When adopting siblings, in addition to the fees for adopting one child, Journeys of the Heart will add $5,000 per child to cover the cost of securing documents and orphanage care for the sibling(s) as well as supporting other charitable projects… Adopting more than one child at a time would also lead to additional cost related to immigration fees, Ugandan attorney’s fees, and travel expenses.
