Welcome

La Vida is a non-profit adoption agency licensed in Pennsylvania. We were among the first agencies to achieve full Hague Convention accredited from the Council on Accreditation.  This accreditation demonstrates that we are in compliance with Hague Convention regulations and it enables us to work with U.S. citizens to adopt children residing in countries participating in The Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption.

La Vida unites loving couples and singles living throughout the United States and U.S. citizens living abroad. 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 have been working with the Chinese government since 1992 and are one of the most experienced China child placing agencies in the United States.  We also have  a program in the country of Colombia which is a wonderful choice for many families. In early October 2013 we opened a program in South Africa.  This web site is designed to be of value to anyone considering international adoption, regardless of their country or agency of choice. 

We will be glad to provide private consultation in-person or via telephone to share program information with you and to answer any questions you may have.  We hope that you enjoy your visit!
