Multiple Adoptions from Guatemala

Special Note: Currently the U.S. is Not Processing Guatemalan Adoptions

It is possible to adopt more than one child from Guatemala; however there can be difficulties if you do not plan ahead.

Can I Adopt More Than One Child?

Yes, families can adopt more than one child at a time from Guatemala. But, unless the children are siblings it can be a very difficult process to coordinate. Additionally, adding two or more children to your family at one time can be very demanding on you and your family, so make sure to give this much thought and discuss it in detail with the agency conducting your home study.  If you are considering adopting more than one child in the same trip, make sure that your adoption agency is aware of this from the onset since it will need to be addressed in the interviews and in the home study.
