I want to help out the victims of the typhoon. How can I adopt an orphan from the Phillipines?

As a result of the destruction caused by Typhoon Haiyan, many people have sent us emails asking if they can adopt an orphan from the Philippines. It is not considered best practice to adopt a child from a country that has just experienced a natural disaster like the Philippines, or is in the middle of a civil war, such as Syria. Although it is a natural instinct to want to rescue a child in these situations, this is not the best approach. For a more complete explanation of why this is so, please read this article http://www.creatingafamily.org/blog/can-you-adopt-a-child-from-philippin...

IAC only does domestic open adoption, If you are considering international adoption, please talked to a Hague Certified international adoption agency for more information.
