Guatemala Adoptive Families Network
GAFN was founded by families with children adopted from Guatemala with the goal to contribute to the well-being of all Guatemalan families and children. They initiate and support projects that help raise the standard of living for Guatemalan children and their families, that improve conditions in Guatemalan orphanages, and that promote ethical adoptions for Guatemalan children whose birth families voluntarily relinquish them or who are otherwise legally placed for adoption.
