Protect the child,
the heart of adoption



For every child born here, expected and surrounded by love, for hundreds of others across the world their destiny is abandonment. However, whatever the circumstances surroundings a birth, each child is entitled to tenderness, to a healthy development and a loving family that wants him.

Every year in Quebec, many parents have the privilege of welcoming children coming from many countries. On a smaller scale it is a little like a love miracle that is renewed by imprinting in the heart of each child an inner peace that cannot be measured by any statistic.

The Secrétariat à l'adoption internationale is proud, trough its window on the world, to present its philosophy, its values, its operation, the legal framework governing its activities and its network of partners as well as numerous information regarding international adoption.
