“God knew that it doesn’t matter how your children get to your family. It just matters that they get there.”
If we are not able to reunite abandoned babies into healthy biological family situations, we believe the next best option for the child is to be adopted into a loving family. We are grateful for every person or family that is willing and able to open their heart and home to babies who have been left abandoned or orphaned.
Adoptions in South Africa are facilitated by government accredited adoption agencies. Door of Hope works in conjunction with such an adoption agency i.e. ABBA. They specialize in National Adoptions, Inter Country Adoptions, Unplanned Pregnancies and Social Services. ABBA provides a comprehensive spectrum of services related to adoption in all provinces in South Africa.
South Africa has limited agreements with foreign countries to place children if there are no South African adopters available. We work with Abba Adoptions and they have official agreements with Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Norway and Germany; but in accordance to the working agreements, they do not deal with enquiries directly.
Parents from other countries, interested to adopt from South Africa are requested to contact the Central Authority in your own country to enquire about options to adopt from South Africa. Abba will not be able to deal with enquiries outside their mandate. Alternatively you can contact the South African Central Authority for more information.
