Brazil Adoption


About The Children

Children available for adoption are between 9 to 15 years old. They will usually be part of a sibling group or have a significant special need.

Brazilian children come from a variety of ethnic groups that make up their rich cultural heritage. These groups are Latino-Brazilian, African-Brazilian, and European-Brazilian.
