As with all our adoption programmes, we recommend applicants contact us for an overview of all country programmes as selecting a country is an important decision and by discussing the different programmes with HHAMA applicants can be helped to make a decision which is informed and realistic in terms of completing an adoption.
HHAMA has been accredited by the AAI to mediate an adoption programme with Poland. We were also accredited by the Polish central authority, Polish Ministry of Labour and Social Policy and that accreditation is under renewal process currently [15th March 2018] and renewal has not yet been secured.
HHAMA will be partnered with the Polish accredited agency authorised by the Polish Ministry of Labour and Social Policy.
Placement or Matching on the Polish programme is by Hague article 17 and there is a stage of proposed placement before that approval.
It is fair to say that this programme is best suited to applications with some Polish heritage. The children are traditionally older, 6+, and include sibling groups. It is an advantage to have knowledge of Polish.
Please contact us to discuss your application and to explore your suitability for this programme in terms of gender preference, number of children and ages of children approved to adopt as well as additional medical needs you may consider.
