Gladney is excited to offer Colombia as an adoption option. We're committed to finding permanent and loving families for these beautiful children. Throughout the adoption process, we work closely with the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare (ICBF). The ICBF, located in Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, processes international adoptions and oversees the licensing of private institutions.  Gladney also works with private institutions (IAPA): Casa de la Madre y El Nino.

Gladney staff is committed to assisting families interested in adopting from Colombia. To learn more about adopting from Colombia, please request one of Gladney's free, comprehensive Adoption Information Packets. Make your request on-line or by calling 1-800-INT-ADOP.
