“Adopting From China” Webinars:
Finding Homes for Children in China
Since 1990, we’ve united more than 2,000 children from China with their adoptive parents. WACAP’s experienced China adoption team has built a strong relationship with the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA) and has a history of offering personalized adoption services to families. Our expert team will work closely with you to adopt the child waiting to become a part of your life.
About the Children
At any given time, about 2,000 children in China are ready to be matched with a family immediately, and WACAP staff can assist you in exploring whether one of these children is destined to be your son or daughter.
These children may be waiting for a family because they are older or because of an individual medical or developmental condition. You may be surprised to learn that many young boys are waiting
for families in China, as well as girls. For more information and to see some of the children in China who currently need homes, you can visit our secure Waiting Child website
or call us to learn more.
“Because we were open to a child who was a little older, we were matched almost immediately and came home from China with our 2-year-old daughter just months later. She’s now in first grade and up to grade level. We can’t imagine life without her, and we can’t thank WACAP enough. They helped us become a family." —WACAP Adoptive Parent
Adopting From China
For most families, the time it takes to adopt a child waiting for a family is usually within just a year of completing their homestudy.
Both married couples and single women are welcome to adopt from China.
If you’d like more information about the process
associated with adoption from China, or if you have questions about your adoption application

To adopt from China, you must work with Hague
-accredited homestudy and placing agencies.
WACAP is one of a select group of agencies accredited under the Hague Convention on International Adoption and is proud to be recognized for upholding the highest ethical, legal and professional standards.
WACAP staff members have made several trips to China this year, where our team has seen more than a hundred children we’ll be in a position to match with WACAP families in the coming months. In the meantime, we have created a slideshow
(right) to share with prospective families.
Now is the time to complete your paperwork so your family is ready to be matched. Many of the youngest children with mild or correctable needs will be classified as “dossier first” which means only families who have completed their home study and dossier paperwork ahead of time can be matched with those children.
Right now WACAP is actively recruiting families who can be paperwork-ready, especially those who wish to adopt young boys (with needs that range from very mild to moderate) or older girls, mostly age 3-6. Please contact WACAP’s China Team for more information.
