    EAC is working in cooperation with the Central Authority IHNFA - Instituto Hondureño de la Niñez y la Familia to complete adoptions in Honduras. Honduras is a very flexible program. The majority of files in country have already been approved and are on the wait list waiting to be matched to a referral.

    EAC has families traveling to Honduras. The laws have changed as of September 10th, 2013 it is official! IHNFA will be processing cases much faster! We expect many referrals in the next few months for our families whose files are registered in Honduras.
