Nemours Children's International Medicine Adoption Program

At Nemours, language is never a barrier. We assist families from all over the world and we have resources and team members to help you.

We have interpreters available to help you in any conversation. That can be in-person or through our 24-hour-a-day telephone interpreter service. Sign language services are accessible for the hearing-impaired.

Medical Records From a Doctor, Caregiver or Adoption Agency

Once a child has been identified, his or her medical records and as much additional information as possible (including photos and video) should be sent so that we can provide guidance during the pre-adoption medical review.

  • Your child’s records need to be translated into English in order for us to provide an evaluation and overall risk assessment.
  • You can send medical records to Nemours via email, FedEx, postal service or fax.

  • Medical records are protected by HIPAA privacy laws in the United States.
  • Medical record translation is the responsibility of adoptive parents. You can send us records already translated (we can provide names of reputable medical record translation companies), or we can arrange to send records out for translation at your cost.
