You can apply to our program to adopt an identified child or you can submit a generic adoption application for a child to be identified as your paperwork progresses. We’re happy to discuss both options with you. Submitting your application packet begins the process. If you have applied to adopt a specific waiting child, we will immediately lock-in that child’s file under your name on the CCCWA system. Usually within one week, we receive notice from China that the match has been approved.
