We’ve built our reputation on being honest and supportive. International Child Foundation was founded in 2004 and has provided adoption services for families and orphans from many countries. Our domestic adoption program, ABC Infant Adoption, started a few years later. Together, we provide infant and international adoption options!
Families and birth parents know us to be straightforward, sincere, compassionate and expert in adoption. Agency social workers go the extra mile to ensure families are prepared. Birthparents are treated with respect. Our home studies are an engaging learning experience for all involved; we learn about you and you learn about adoption!
Expectant parents come to us with the assurance that our services to them will be free and non-judgmental. We respect expectant parents for the courage they have shown by asking for help. We listen to and support them. We have counselors assisting with pregnancy options or adoption planning in Phoenix, Tucson, Kingman, Prescott, Flagstaff, Nogales and rural areas of Arizona.
Our adoption agency prizes honesty, compassion, straightforward information, empathy, expertise and integrity. Many of us are adoptive parents ourselves. We sincerely want to help children find forever families, help expectant parents make choices that feel right to them, and help adoptive parents navigate adoption successfully.
