Adoption with ISSJ

ISSJ’s adoptions are in the best interest of the child and we think adoptions are for those children who need family, not for prospective adoptive parents. We follow the 1993 Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption as well as the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.
