America World Adoption is proud to be licensed and Hague accredited in 23 states, including our corporate office in Virginia, and privileged to work with 60 social workers across the country. Each of our affiliate offices is fully licensed in its respective state to provide adoption home study services (including post adoption services) to families adopting through America World. Most of our affiliate offices are also able to provide home study services for families adopting through other agencies.
Prospective adoptive parents are screened for AW pre-eligibility requirements prior to receiving services from our affiliate offices. Age, marital status, health, previous criminal arrests, and income are some of the factors evaluated in determining eligibility. In line with our status as a non-profit organization with a religious classification, AW requires one parent to affirm a Bible-based Statement of Faith. Once determined eligible to receive services, America World will render services and documentation as needed for a family's adoption process, in accordance with their state's, USCIS, and country requirements for international adoptions or state's requirements for domestic adoptions.
To begin, please visit your state's specific State Office page (by selecting it from the drop-down list on this page) to learn more about the services available to your family and any applicable fees. If you have any questions about the requirements of adoption from a specific country, please don't hesitate to contact our corporate office at 800-429-3369 to speak to a knowledgeable staff member of any of our adoption programs.
