About Poland

Lifeline has had an adoption program in Poland since 2012 and maintains a positive relationship with the National Adoption Center, working with orphanages all over the country. Poland allows families the opportunity to pursue the adoption of children with minor to significant medical and developmental special needs. Overall, the Polish authorities are in favor of U.S. citizens adopting Polish children, and are very supportive and helpful during the adoption process. Poland is one of Lifeline’s most active adoption programs in Eurasia.

The Need

Since working in Poland, Lifeline has advocated mainly for children in sibling groups with a wide range of ages.

How You Can Help

To be eligible to adopt from Poland, at least one spouse must have Polish citizenship. Lifeline advocates and recruits families open to sibling groups and varying ages. We have seen many sibling groups come home since 2012. We work hard to prepare families for sibling groups so that these children will have a forever family.
