Welcome to the Hawaii International Child website.

We have carefully designed this site to:

  • Keep our HIC clients informed, connected and updated
  • Provide information to those interested in learning more about adoption
  • Offer resources to help with the adoption process

HIC has been placing children with loving parents since 1975. From that year through 1990, the agency placed over 2,000 Korean orphans into permanent homes. Beginning in 1991, HIC was among the first nonprofit adoption agencies to offer programs focusing on Russian and Chinese orphans.

Our commitment to adoption and children has sent us around the world, providing humanitarian aid and child placement services.

At HIC, we focus on the needs and rights of our children and clients, strive to offer efficient and personalized service, and pride ourselves on staying up to date on issues pertaining to adoption and families.

We hope you find this website helpful, and encourage you to offer feedback here. Thanks for visiting our site.
