We are currently seeing children up to 7 years old with moderate to significant medical needs and children 8 years or older with or without medical special needs. We also see sibling groups varying in number of children and age ranges with or without needs.

Families can be matched after their dossier is approved by DINAF. We anticipate a 3-4 or more year wait time to be matched. For international adoptions DINAF focuses on older children and sibling group adoptions.

The process of adopting from Honduras is estimated to take approximately 5 or more years.

Families will travel to Honduras on two required trips. The first trip is 5-10 days and occurs after matching for the family and child to spend intentional time bonding.  The second trip is 4-8+ weeks which includes adoption finalization and the paperwork process to secure the child’s visa to the US. The in-country team in Honduras provides translation and guide services during families stays.
