Adoption Information Now Available in Spanish
General information on adoption is now available in Spanish translation from Child Welfare Information Gateway. The general information packet includes factsheets for families on where to begin with adoption, adoption options, and the home study process. The many decisions that prospective parents encounter in the adoption process are outlined, and numerous resources are provided for further information. Two more packets of general information on the costs of adoption and on the impact of adoption and searching for birth relatives are also available in Spanish.
The Spanish general information adoption packet is available for ordering or downloading at http://www.childwelfare.gov/pubs/spanish_gip_one.cfm. (Editor's note: This link is no longer active.

Child Welfare Information Gateway also allows users to place orders for information using a Spanish-language "shopping cart." Users can opt to ver mi carro (view my cart) in Spanish by clicking on the shopping cart icon and then clicking on the Spanish-language option at the top of the page. The website provides a wide variety of resources for adoption professionals, prospective and adoptive parents, and the general public at http://www.childwelfare.gov
