Adopting from Colombia

Welcome House® has been in operation since 1949 and has placed over 7,000 children from 28 countries worldwide. In November 2011, we officially received approval from Colombia's central authority, Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar (ICBF), to begin placing children.

Our experienced staff in the U.S. will support you throughout the adoption process our in-country and assistants will lead you while in Colombia.
