Welcome to COA
COA has been at the forefront of working with intercountry adoption service providers to ensure that the needs and rights of children, biological families, and adoptive families are met. We are, therefore, especially proud to have been designated by the Department of State as the sole national Accrediting Entity under the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 (IAA).
We look forward to working with you in your efforts to achieve Hague Accreditation, Approval, or Renewal.
