  • Description
  • For the last 39 years Hand In Hand has been helping people find their way to children who are desperately in need of parents. We have placed more than 9,000 children in loving homes throughout the United States. Hand In Hand is a Christian-based, non-denominational adoption agency, Hague-accredited and licensed to place children throughout the United States. Hand In Hand International Adoptions began its office in Colorado 37 years ago, originally as Cribs, Inc and then incorporating as Hand In Hand in 1980. Hand In Hand is honored to be among the select group of initial agencies in Colorado to achieve Hague Accreditation. While Colorado is home to many adoption agencies, Hand In Hand prides itself on the level of individual attention we provide our families as we walk them through the entire adoption process from information meetings through court validation/finalization and beyond. Because of the relationships we build with the families we work with, we are able to offer post adoption support through phone calls, resource lists, education opportunities, and agency events. The Colorado office of Hand In Hand has welcomed children home from all over the world including: China, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Moldova, Peru, Russia, the Philippines, and Thailand. While located in Colorado Springs, the Colorado office also provided domestic adoption services. We are looking forward to continuing to welcome children home through our active programs in China and the Philippines as well as our newer programs in Bulgaria and Brazil. Originally located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and then Estes Park, Colorado, the current Hand In Hand office is now located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Fort Collins, Colorado is located 65 miles north of Denver, Colorado and is home to Colorado State University nestled up against the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Fort Collins is known for the healthy and active lifestyle of its residents and the university small town atmosphere.
  • Adoption Process
  • Step 1: If you reside in one of the states in which Hand In Hand has licensed offices (Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, or Minnesota) we invite you to attend a free orientation hosted by Hand In Hand. Our orientation sites, dates and times are listed on our news page, or you may contact the office nearest you for more information. If you reside in another state, you may request an information packet or contact our administrative office in Tucson, Arizona, and you will work directly with the Hand In Hand Program Director for your desired country. Step 2: If you choose to adopt through Hand In Hand, you must submit a completed application with application fee, a copy of your most recent tax return, a signed fee agreement for the specific country, a signed disclosure statement, and a snapshot photo of you and your family. Step 3: Upon receipt and acceptance of your application, Hand In Hand will send you an invitation to attend our mandatory pre-adoptive parent group training sessions (if you reside in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Indiana or Minnesota). The agency requires 30-35 hours of training, with the structure of the training varying with the state. If you reside in a state other than Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Indiana or Minnesota, training will be provided by the licensed agency in your state that will be doing your home study. Areas of education provided by Hand In Hand include Immigration, the home study process, paperwork processing, types of children available, attachment and bonding, trans-racial and trans-cultural adoptions, medical considerations, core issues in adoption, parenting skills, and more. Step 4: With our guidance, you will be busy collecting medical reports, original birth certificates, marriage/divorce certificates, employment verification, physical examination forms, and other documents needed to build your dossier. Each country has its own requirements for dossier documents, and we will assist you with each one. Step 5: Once a portion
