Welcome, Hawaiians! This guide was written to provide you with a single place to find information about adoption within your own state. It will walk you through everything from laws that will impact your adoption to reviews of adoption service providers in Hawaii.
We’ve divided this guide into five parts: first, general information about adopting in Hawaii, then sections dedicated to domestic infant adoption (starting in Slide 6), foster adoption (Slide 19), international adoption (Slide 29), and stepparent adoption (Slide 33). And don’t miss our slide filled with links to helpful adoption resources (Slide 36).
