Asian / Pacific Islander Adoption
Healthy Asian/Pacific Islander Infants Need Families Now
Families of color, including Asian and Pacific Islander adoptive and birth parents, are underserved in adoption. Pact works to make adoption ethical and accessible by ensuring that placement services are available to all qualified parents, including low- and middle-income families.
Asian (and interracial) pre-adoptive parents working with Pact usually wait between six months and two years.
“Pact worked with our son’s birth mother to find the kind of family she wanted and we were so honored when she chose us. It all happened faster than we even thought possible. We were over the moon the day he came home with us. Our family couldn’t be more happy. It was so important to us that his birth mother was treated with respect and supported throughout the process. Thank you Pact for your care and compassion.”

Pact puts children and the human side of adoption before the “business” side.
Pact educates pre-adoptive parents and helps them act in the child’s best interest.
“We were afraid of open adoption, but Pact worked with us to believe in the process. Now we realize that children don’t have to choose. We respect the women who allowed us to parent our children and realize that our children benefit from knowing they are loved by their first mothers as well as us. We don’t feel threatened, we are all their real parents, we just have different roles. We couldn’t love or feel connected to our children more!”
