International Adoption » Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka local time:
The Sri Lanka program is open to British Columbia families only. The Sri Lanka program is offered in partnership with our facilitator, Cornerstone Adoption Agency.
Applicants must be married and over 25 years of age, and at least 21 years older than the child.
Children from 3 months to 14 years old can be adopted from Sri Lanka. The orphaned or abandoned children in State Receiving Homes and Voluntary Children’s Homes are referred for adoption. These children are first referred to local applicants and those not placed locally are available for inter-country adoption.
It is difficult to provide a specific time frame for the adoption process as the political situation and legislation of any country is subject to change.
Once an application is received and the home study is approved, CHOICES will assist in completing your paperwork and preparing the dossier for Sri Lanka. In collaboration with our facilitator, we will guide and assist you through all phases of the adoption process while ensuring all requirements met both in Canada and in Sri Lanka. More information on the adoption process can be found here.
