It is recommended that potential adoptive parents allow themselves at least 30 days to begin the process. Eligible adoptive parents must be between the ages of 25 and 60. In 2009, U.S. citizens adopted approximately 1 child from Costa Rica. Costa Rica is also known to provide comprehensive medical and psychological evaluations of children at referral.

I want to adopt a Grown young man who is now 30 in Costa Rica. I met him when he was 17. He has been MY son from the beginning, we stay in touch regularly and I want to make it legal. He was physically abandoned by his mom at a young age, and has no relationship with her. Any advise or someone you can recommend to assist with adoption? xxxx Thank you #1
