Adopt from China

(Last updated 03/14)

The Children
Most of the children available for adoption in China are girls that have usually been found in a public place and brought to an orphanage. China's one-child policy and the strong desire for a son bind many parents in China. For many birthparents this seems to be the only real choice, as violating China's one-child policy can mean serious penalties and fines imposed on the family.
Chinese orphanages are simple, clean facilities, and do their best to provide good basic care for the children. Most of the children waiting for adoption in China are infant girls. There are also many children that are older or have medical conditions, including boys.

Placement Resources
You can learn more about adoptions from China from an agency with a placement program in that country.  Here are a couple to consider: Wide Horizons for Children, and Children's Home Society of Minnesota.
