LID Families: Avoid the Wait

Attention LID Families: 

An announcement released by the CCCWA has stated that families with dossiers logged into China are currently eligible to be matched IMMEDIATELY with a child over six years old that is HEALTHY.

If your family is remotely interested our Referral Team is standing by ready to help your family skip the long line and bring home your child soon. We must hear from your family by Friday June 27th in order to consider this option for your family.

To be eligible, you must have your dossier registered in China, your family should have a current home study and a current CIS approval. If your family does not meet these requirements and you are interested in pursuing this unique opportunity, contact our staff NOW.  We are here to discuss how to help your family move forward quickly and be matched with a HEALTHY child over six years old.

We look forward to finding these children their forever family, and bringing them home soon.

GWCA Families Meet With CCCWA Director

Thursday June 19th, five of our families graciously attended a reception at the NCFA  conference in Orlando, Florida. This reception was to honor the CCCWA Director Li and his delegates as this was his first visit to the United States. GWCA was honored to be a part of his visit. It was an incredible opportunity for Director Li to witness the benefits of American families adopting children from China.

At one point Director Li was chatting with GWCA’s President when he stopped mid conversation as he spotted a familiar face. He and his interpreter rushed over to greet a family and figure out where he knew them from. If you recall ‘Maya’s Journey Home‘ Director Li was present for the adoption of Maya. It was Maya’s family that he recognized, he was so pleased to see how far Maya has come in just one month and how genuinely happy she is.

One of the sweet girls that attended was our little Bella. She has been home about a year and half. Just months after coming home her family had her fitted for prosthetic legs. (Read her story here.) Bella is moving and grooving like any other child, it was heart-warming for all to see her beautiful smile and active personality as nothing can stand in her way. It’s strong kiddos like that with supportive families that encourage our staff to keep fighting for these children.

One of our families brought their three stunning daughters to meet Director Li.

These girls are all academic superstars and got a real kick out of meeting the Director. After overcoming many challenges this family is a beautiful example of how far these children can come with just a little love from their family. Look at those beautiful smiles!


GWCA is so honored to have been able to meet and greet with the CCCWA Director and delegates. We are so thankful to the families that contributed to this experience and for reminding us all why adoption matters.

Hi, my name is Dallas and I am 10 years old. The doctors tell me I have something called thrombocytopenia, which means I don’t have as many platelets in my blood as I should. I am in school right now, and I’m very smart! Math is my favorite subject, and I’m a straight A student. I get along great with my classmates, and I always like to help them when I can. I am very close with my aunts, and I always like to say goodbye as they leave and make sure they know to be safe on the roads! I enjoy watching cartoons, flying kites and picking flowers when I’m outside. I am also very good at taking care of myself, and I like to make sure my clothes and school supplies are neat and tidy before I go to bed. My caregivers say I am very friendly, and I always like to take care of the younger boys and girls whenever I can!









Hi, I’m Ty and I’m 12 years old. I’ve spent some time with doctors having my cataracts removed, and they say I have congenital cataract, congenital microphthalmia, microcornea and an undescended testicle. I’ve had an operation for my cataracts and I’m now able to see some objects and walk on my own! Right now I’m in school learning to read braille and even some English words! My caregivers tell me that I’m great at adapting to new environments and that I love getting to meet new people. My favorite things to do are rope skipping, playing ball, hula hoop and singing! Everyone tells me I’m an amazing performer and that I’m famous here at the orphanage!









Hi, My name is Ziggy I am 9 years old. The doctors tell me I have profound hearing loss, but I’ve learned how to communicate through sign language! I was a little frustrated and scared when I first came to the orphanage, but now that I’ve learned how to communicate I am much happier. I like to play and I am very active, I run, jump, hop and skip. Around new people I can be a little shy. I have good relationships with caregivers and friends, and I get along well with others. I also tell my caregivers how much a want a parent and family!









Hi! My name is Emily and I am 5 years old. I am a sweet girl and I get along well with other children. I try to always keep a ready smile and I enjoy going to school. My doctors say that my physical development is great but I have problems with my memory. I haven’t learned how to count yet, but I am performing just the same as my peers in school. I am a talkative girl and am full of energy. I hope to be adopted one day and have a forever family of my own! **Only families with a registered dossier (LID) are eligible to pursue this child.**









Hi, I’m Autumn and I am 12 years old! When I was younger, I had a cleft lip and palate, but I have had 2 surgeries to correct this. I am now doing wonderful and I can keep up with my peers in everything that I do! My caregivers say that I am very courteous and kind. I enjoy helping around my orphanage and doing my homework. I love to sing and dance. My caregivers describe me as active, outgoing, and considerate. I have learned about adoption and I want to find my forever mother and father!!

Meet this week’ s Featured WOW Kids. To learn more on how to bring them home, our International Adoption Consultants are anxiously awaiting to hear from you. To learn more about our other waiting children, please check out our photo listing.

Hi! My name is Maxwell and I am 3 years old. At four months old, my caretakers find out that I was a bit delayed compared to my peers and in 2012, my doctors stated that I have delayed cerebral development. I am an active and restless boy and I always have a ready smile. I am currently living with a foster family and my development is progressing. I am able to say words like “elder brother”, “Bye-bye”, and “younger brother.” I still have trouble eating harder foods and although I like to try and feed myself, I drop a lot on the floor. Also, sometimes when I play I keep my mouth open and tend to drool. I am a good dancer but I am not very good at sharing toys. I like to run fast, jump, and play with the other children.

Hi! My name is Kevin and I always have a ready smile. I have Down syndrome along with repaired ASD and VSD heart defects. I am a very active boy and I love to play games. Noisey places are lots of fun and I love playing with the other kids, I love to play with toy balls. I have a plush toy dog and frog. They are my very favorite and I love getting to love and kiss them. I am tender hearted and am progressing in my development everyday.

Hi, I’m Wyatt and I am 9 years old. The doctors say I can’t see because I am missing my eyes, but I don’t let that stop me! I enjoy playing with other children in the orphanage and helping my caregivers with daily chores. I am very active and eager to learn! I can count from 1 to 100, and I can memorize and recite poetry. I’m told I have a great memory! I’ve started reading braille in school, and they have me working on my hand coordination. I’m also able to eat, brush my teeth and clean myself all on my own! I am a very happy boy, and although I can be a little shy in a new environment, I adjust quickly and am happy to make new friends! My caregivers say that I am sweet, easy to talk to and kind!

Hi, I’m Jimmy and I just turned 7 years old! I have been diagnosed with CP, and I had a brain scan that shows nothing abnormal on my CT. My file is older so my friends at GWCA are trying to get updated information. In 2010 I was walking independently, expressing my needs, and learning on my own. I can understand what my caregivers are asking me to do and follow instructions. My caregivers like me very much and say that I am very pleasant! I love to play outside in the sun!

Hi, I’m Jory and I am 7 years old. I have been diagnosed with arthrogryposis multiplex. This causes high muscle tension in my wrists, elbows, knees, and ankles. Because of this, I am unable to walk on my own. I am sitting up on my own. I am learning in school and have been doing really great developmentally. My caregivers say that I am very extroverted and love to play with cars. Any time that I see a toy car, my face lights up! My file is a little bit older, so my friends at Great Wall are trying to get more information on how I am doing today!
