America World Adoption is proud to be licensed and COA accredited in 21 states, including our corporate office in Virginia,
and privileged to work with 50 home study coordinators across the country.
Each of our affiliate offices is fully licensed in its respective state to provide
home study, post adoption, and other social 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 and 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.
