Hi! Our son is Filipino (born in the U.S.), and we would love to connect with other families who have adopted Filipino children, to share experiences and ideas for activities and resources that involve Filipino heritage and culture.


Hello!  My husband and I are still on a waiting list to adopt but once we do I would love to share experiences and ideas. Thank you so much for reaching out

That would be great Vera. Best wishes to you and your husband!

My husband and I just started the adoption process for a Filipino child. What agency are you using and how long is the wait time? I hope since your last post that you’ve received some news.

Hi Marcella

Sorry it took me so long to reply-we were actually in the Philippines to bring our son home when you sent this! We now have a 17 month year old son named Romel and we are in heaven!  We used Wide Horizons for Children as our placement agency and we were very happy with them. The waiting time has gone up significantly. We started the process before the Philippines stopped accepting requests for younger children. We waited 32 months before the referral. Neither my husband or myself are Filipino.  Best of luck for you-I hope you keep us updated.
