At this very moment hundreds of referrals are ready for adoption and waiting for their forever family. Because of these precious children, we would like to make your family aware of the option to adopt a child through the China Waiting Children Program. Over the years, America World has been honored to place hundreds of boys and girls with their forever families.
The referrals of boys and girls can range in age from 6 months to 13 years old. According to adoption laws in China, a child must be adopted prior to their 14th birthday. The special needs that are typically seen are cleft lip/palate, heart defects, hearing or vision problems, hand/foot/limb deformities (on occasion, club foot), missing limbs, Hepatitis B, spine deformity, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Down Syndrome, brain conditions, and developmental delays. The majority of children available through this program have a medically correctable special need and many children receive surgeries in China. Healthy children over the age of 6 years are also available for adoption; however most healthy children will be 9 or older.
