What to Expect
From Your International Adoption Consultation With Nemours
Our Nemours International Adoption Medicine Program is designed to help adopting parents navigate the medical and psychological parts of international adoption, while giving you the tools to make the right choices for your family. We provide pre-adoption evaluations and medical reviews (once a child has been identified) for children from countries all over the world.
Our program has expertise in adoptive children with special needs, including fetal alcohol syndrome, HIV, cerebral palsy, cleft lip and palate, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other medical and behavioral disorders in adopted children. Plus, as part of Nemours Children’s Health System, our international adoption medicine experts have immediate access to pediatric specialists in more than 30 additional areas of expertise, including a collaborative team across multiple locations, if needed.
Because adoption is for life, we’ll be here with you every step of the way, for as long as you need us.
