About Us

American Adoption Professionals Abroad (AAPA)


AAPA was founded in 1990 by Randy Barlow (now retired)  to serve Americans living abroad who were interested in international adoption. 


Today, AAPA continues to serve families abroad guiding them through the adoption journey.  For over ten years, Wendy Wiley, Lari Baty Cannon, and Debbie Driessen-Grika have worked in partnership to support adoptive families globally.  


AAPA is a network of independent professionals who work together to facilitate your adoption journey.  Our associates are strategically located in the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Europe and are experts in all aspects of your home study approval and immigration processes.
