Medical Records From Your Child’s 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.
