Vietnam’s Central Adoption Authority, the Ministry of Justice, announced that it has authorized two U.S. adoption service providers to facilitate intercountry adoptions in Vietnam:
Dillon International, Inc.
Holt International Children’s Services, Inc.

Convention adoptions from Vietnam through a program for children with
special needs, children aged five and older, and children in
