La Vida is a 501(C)(3) Federal non-profit adoption agency licensed in
Pennsylvania. We have 30 years of successful domestic and international
experience. When the Hague
Convention went into effect in 2008, we were also among the first agencies
to achieve full Hague accreditation from the Council on Accreditation
This accreditation enabled us to work with U.S. families to adopt children
residing in many countries. We recently made the decision not to renew
our Hague Accreditation and effective March 1, 2018, we will not be acting
as a primary provider (child placing agency) for inter-country adoption
La Vida currently provides home study and post placement services and
specialized services to couples and singles living in Pennsylvania.
Our agency was founded by and is directed by adoptive parents who personally
understand the multitude of emotions that occur during your adoption
process. Our philosophy is to address your specific needs and do so in a
compassionate manner. Our commitment comes from the heart.
We will be glad to provide private consultation in-person or via telephone
to share information about our services with you and to answer any questions
you may have. We hope that you enjoy your visit!
Please keep in mind when visiting this site that we will be updating content
