Adoption Consultant in PR

Hi everyone! I wanted to share that last August I got in contact with a consulting non-profit organization in Puerto Rico.

Founder, Javier Vargas is an adoptive parent as well. He and his wife have adopted three children from the PR system. The laws have changed allowing non residents to adopt.

We are working with them hoping to adopt this year from PR.


Here is his contact information:

Thank you Betsie for the post.  The laws have changed but contacting agency and getting call backs continues to be a challenge very sloooooooow process.  Practically given up but will try your contact and update.

Dios los bendiga siempre

Hi Hector!
I totally understand. Try Javier, that’s what he is trying to do, helping adoptive parents navigate through the Dept of Family’s maze.

Hi, Betsy.  Have you had any luck? We have been trying to adopt in Puerto Rico, but haven’t recieved any updates from Department di Familia.
