This is why the older children in Guatemala get overlooked, because families would rather adopt an infant for that fee, rather then paying that amount for an older child.

This makes sense, because no one here or in Guatemala will do legal work on your behalf without getting paid for their services.I wish the fees were a little less, or at least reduced for older children or siblings.

Feel free to contact us regarding some wonderful healthy children that are waiting for a loving home!
