Scope of activities

Destinées is a AAB whose object is by the adoption to find in France a family for Slovak or Vietnamese children permanently deprived of his or her family in the country of origin. Destinées cooperates with the Association Hoa Trang - Fleur Blanche (www.fleur-blanche.org) to help improving the future of Vietnamese and Slovak children whether adoptable or not.

Destinées is recognised as a major operator in its role as an qualified intermediate to find adoptive families for children originating from Vietnam or Slovakia.

Destinées wants to respect both in France and in the country of origin, under the Hague Convention, the laws and conventions binding France to these two countries, the values which have inspired its own creation:

  • the primacy of the interests of the child. It is intended to seek for a child who would have no alternative in his country of origin, a French family having an “actual ability” to the accommodation of a child;
  • fairness, equality, transparency, secularism.
In this context, Destinées ensure that:
  • The selection of the families applying for project approval;
  • Information and preparation of selected sets;
  • Control and transmission of files required by the country of origin;
  • Their progress in the countries of origin;
  • The transmission of linked proposed by countries of origin;
  • Supporting families at the meeting with their child;
  • Monitoring post adoption and preparation of monitoring reports.

Applying to Destinées

Destinées only responds to letter of adoption applicants arriving at the postal address :
Destinées
BP 1 - 54610 NOMENY
or send by mail to
secretariat@destinees.org

In return Destinées adresses the family an introductory note and a list of deliverables to be candidates.
In order to determine whether the candidates present a compatibile project with the adoptable children and suitable to the requirements of countries of origin, a reading commission of the case files shall meet in order to give a first opinion. Then one or more (exploratory talks with members of the body or external speakers) are foreseen and the Management Board decides whether or not the admissibility of the application.
At the end of the application, the family is invited to complete and sign a Relationship Development Project. It must then fill and sign an adoption file, required by the authorities of the country selected. There is at this stage no guarantee for family to have a child by Destinées.
