Eltern-Kind-Brücke e.V.

State-approved International Adoption Service

Adoptions from Poland


No placement is possible at the moment.

Since 1995, Polish adoption law has been based on the Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption. As of January 2017, there is only one authorised body to receive international applications: the Catholic Placement Office in Warsaw.

In Poland, the Hague Convention prioritises domestic adoption over foreign adoption. This means that foreign adoption applicants are only considered as potential parents if no suitable Polish adoptive parents are available.

Older children, from around 4 years of age, or children with health problems that can only be successfully treated abroad are usually available for adoption abroad. Siblings, often more than one, who wish to be adopted together also fall into this category. The Polish authorities prefer families who are willing to maintain contact with each other, which is rarely the case in Poland. Adoptive parents for schoolchildren are particularly sought after.
