Dillon International

North Little Rock, AR 72116 | (501) 416-0929

Dillon International was founded by Jerry and Deniese Dillon in 1972 to meet the needs of the thousands of vulnerable Korean orphans. Centrally located in the United States, Dillon International is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was the first licensed international adoption agency in the state. Throughout our history, Dillon International has been actively involved in establishing intercountry adoption standards and policies both in the United States and abroad. The agency has helped to establish adoption programs in several countries, including a model foster care program in Korea. Each participating country in the agency’s adoption program has invited Dillon International to help find homes for their vulnerable children. Since our beginning, Dillon International has placed over 6,000 children from developing countries with loving, adoptive families in the United States. Several hundred additional children have been placed with families in their country of birth as a result of Dillon’s efforts. In addition, Dillon International has helped to underwrite hospitals, orphanages and schools in Korea, India, China, and most recently in Vietnam.

Families Are Special, Inc.

North Little Rock, AR 72114 | (501) 758-9184

Families Are Special, Inc. (FASI) traces its origins to the common vision of three mental health professionals, Bill and Ann Barling and Betty Everett. This initial group grew to include an adult adoptee, several adoptive parents, and several people from the clergy, law and business. In early 1993, our board of directors was organized and Families Are Special was formed as a private, nonsectarian, nonprofit agency.Since our founding we have been involved in placing 739 children with Arkansas families. Our board and staff are dedicated to providing the highest quality of professional services. Families Are Special has become recognized for domestic and international placements as well as placements out of foster care. FASI has been at the forefront in recruiting adoptive families and sponsoring networking activities for adoptive families. Our experience has shown that most adoptive families want to know as much as possible about adoption. We hope you do too, because we have found that the more adoptive families know about adoption, the more comfortable they and their adoptive child(ren) will be. During the course of your adoption process, if you discover a new resource that is particularly helpful, please let us know about it so we can share it with others.
