Mission, Vision and Values

Ador Copiii Association is a nongovernmental organization founded by a group of adoptive parents, with an extensive experience in protecting the rights of vulnerable children. Organization's work is based on the fundamental rights of the children and on the European conventions on adoption, in direct collaboration with the organizations and institutions involved in similar and complementary fields of assistance and respecting the European quality standards for social services.

Ador Copiii Association's mission is to improve the quality of life of vulnerable children, to contribute to the development of the children protection system, to create social and effective adoption services.

ADOR is an acronym: A from afecțiune (affection), D from dorinţă (desire) to have children, O from Optimism, R from răbdare (patience) - all the ingredients for unconditional love between parents and children, whether they meet in this life the natural way or through adoption. “Copiii” means Children in Romanian.

We dream of a better understanding of the adoption phenomenon in Romania and of a society opened to adoptions, so that abandoned children could leave and grow in foster families and not in the state’s care. In our opinion, every child deserves a family, regardless of their ethnicity, age or health, our organization constantly seeking to advocate for the children’s rights to a family.

The values on which we rely in everything we do are: transparency, responsability, compassion, fairness.
