Potential adoptive parents are placed on a numerical registry based on order of application. Interested applicants must complete an adoption packet of forms (see links below) which includes a descriptive autobiography covering three general areas: individual/family life, marriage life (as applicable), and your interest in adopting a child. An application fee of $500.00 is also required.

After the above information is sent AHFA will review and notify you of your eligibility status. If you are found to be eligible for AHFA’s adoption program, you will be notified that your name has been placed on the registry. If you are ineligible, you will be notified and your check will be returned to you.

American Home Finding Association attempts to maintain a constant supply of approved applicants.
