This program is: open

Chile does not usually release children under the age of 2 for international adoption, but in all cases, preference is given to blood relatives, then to Chilean applicants, and then finally to non-Chilean applicants.. Therefore, children available for international adoption are generally age 4 and older, healthy and special needs. All adoptive parents must be at least twenty years older than the adopted child. In 2011, one child was adopted from Chile.

I am searching for our adoptive son, Matias Vasquez, born to Miriam de la Luz Vasquez Iturra, on April 10, 1995 in Santiago Chile. Our adoption fell through after a year of waiting, and another American couple took Matias to the United States. Matias just turned 18 and we seek closure by meeting him. #3
