Children’s Adoption Services is the first international adoption agency approved in Ghana under the Hague Convention! At this time, our pilot program is almost at capacity. Once the program reaches capacity, all other families will be put on a waiting list. The children in Ghana receive excellent care while awaiting adoption and reside in government approved and monitored orphanages. CAS works with reputable Foreign Supervise Providers in Ghana throughout the adoption process.
