The Bal Jagat- Children's World Inc. Difference
Since we placed our first child into an adoptive family in 1983, 40 years ago, we've made a commitment serve orphan children. We provide emotional support to families which comes from the heart.
Here are a few important ways that we separate ourselves from other agencies:
- A personalized orientation meeting with each couple/single looking to adopt. We do not do group orientations. You will feel free to express yourself with us and discuss your plan for a family in an open and non judgmental environment. All of your questions are answered.
- Our intimate approach starts from the very first phone call or email. Our social workers guide you on each step of the home study process, as they want to help you adopt.
- We are fully Hague Accredited, and specialize in International Adoption.
- We can work with other Primary Provider agencies and are not limited.
- Being a non- faith based agency, there are no religious requirements and no limitations.
- You get our time and attention as we make you a priority, not a number on a piece of paper.
- We can assist families in 9 counties throughout Southern California (Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Kern, San Luis Obispo, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego).
- Pre- Qualifications are completed before you fill out our paperwork

"It is a privilege to work alongside the Bal Jagat- Children's World team to serve children and families. Bal Jagat approaches every interaction with intention, respect, and the utmost care. They truly want to get to know every family and their story, and walk with them through the journey of adoption. They operate in a highly professional, yet friendly manner that makes each client feel safe and cared for. Hemlata and Mausami are incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about international adoption. It's clear that clients feel very confident entrusting Bal Jagat- Children's World with their future children. I highly recommend the agency to anyone considering international adoption. They will take care of you from the first meeting, through the home study, and maintain a relationship years after a child is united with his or her forever family." - Katy S.

"Bal Jagat, run by a dynamic mother/daughter team is by far the best international adoption agency in SoCal. The mom, Hemlata started the business in the early 1980s and her daughter, Mausami, joined after receiving her Master's Degree. They are both extremely knowledgeable and up to date on International Adoption laws. Mausami is especially detail oriented and works tirelessly, far beyond reasonable expectation, to ensure Bal Jagat clients receive the highest level of service. Mausami and Hemlata both are warm and caring and always have the best interest of their clients at heart. Many families and their adopted children keep in touch with the mother/daughter duo and consider them part of their extended family. If anyone is looking for true expert in the field of International adoption, this is absolutely the only place to go." - Julie B.

Mausami is very detail oriented and informative. She answered all of my questions and simplified the process. I highly recommend Bal Jagat to anyone who wants to adopt internationally, there is no better agency to go to, as I have never met anyone so genuinely passionate about children and families. At Bal Jagat, there are pictures of children on the wall who have been adopted and it is beautiful to see these children so happy. Again, I recommend this company as I have had a wonderful experience here :)" - Yvette P.
"I've worked as a social worker with Bal Jagat, Hemlata and Mausami for 25+ years now. In those years I have worked with some of the most wonderful families, helping them to adopt from countries all over the world. I have continued to work with Bal Jagat through the years as I know they truly care about the prospective moms and dads who come to them, as well as the children who help those parents achieve their dreams of becoming a family. I have met some truly beautiful people, some of whom have become dear friends. As an adoptive mother myself, of my cherished daughter from Romania, I understand both the challenges and tremendous rewards of inter-country adoption. I love the holiday parties where parents and children from around the world are united in the beauty of family. And, I absolutely adore seeing the tremendous love that abounds in all of our families. Thank you Bal Jagat for allowing me to be a part of the gift family." - Luisa B.
"I am a former adoptions homes study social worker with Bal Jagat. I have the utmost respect for this agency. Hemlata and her daughter who is a licensed clinical social worker with years of experience in the field of intercountry adoptions, have helped numerous children find permanent homes with wonderful families in the US. Adoptive parents receive excellent support and guidance, benefiting from Bal Jagat's excellent reputation world-wide. They stay up to date on various legal and policy issues that impact the adoption process to ensure that things go as quickly and smoothly as possible. I recommend them very highly without hesitation." - Anna P (Posted on Yelp)
