Adopting from Korea Overview

Korean Heritage Adoptions

Thank you for your interest in the Korean adoption program. Our program is offered in partnership with Embracing Children Adoption Services (ECAS). Korea has been processing adoption since the 1950’s and several hundred thousand children have been placed into American adoptive homes since that time.  Many of the adoptees are adults with families of their own. The Korean adoption program places health children or children with minor medical needs. Most children are around two years of age when placed. It is a predictable, well organized program perfect for families considering international adoption.

ECAS has a strategic partnership with New Beginnings to assist with identifying and helping families thought the home study process. Over the last two years, NB’s Korean program has been in need of families. New Beginnings will still direct the home study for families in states we are licensed: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida. For families in other states, you are welcome to have ECAS or New Beginnings guide you through the home study process. ECAS supervises many home studies, so the process will be quick, and the fees are the same. NB has been successfully placing children since 1985 and ECAS has been around since 1998.  Both agencies are fully Hague Accredited and not for profit.

Once the home study is completed, NB will prepare your documents for Korea and find the right match of a child. Updates and information is routine while the family waits for their first trip to Korea. A month to six weeks late, they travel again to bring the child home.

We understand that pursuing international adoption is a life changing decision for any family. New Beginnings and ECAS will promise you full transparency throughout the process. We believe that you will make the decision that is best for your family and we will never pressure you on your decision.
