(On-going training sets Great Wall China Adoption apart from all other agencies.)

Great Wall China Adoption is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Austin,Texas. Since 1996, Great Wall has assisted the Chinese government in placing more than 9,000 children with forever families. Between the headquarters located in Austin, Texas and the sister office in Beijing, China, we work on behalf of families each day to be experts at exceeding China’s requirements and adoptive families’ expectations by staying updated on aspects of China adoption.

Great Wall China Adoption’s dedicated team is focused on delivering international adoption services without sacrificing intimate guidance. GWCA has an expert to guide your family through each phase of the adoption process. From dossier to travel, to our Waiting Child Program and our charitable missions, Great Wall China Adoption offers families more options, more dedication to personal service, and more amenities than any other non-profit adoption agency. Let us help you begin your journey towards international adoption and helping your family grow today!

Great Wall also sets itself apart from other agencies by having an international office in the Chinese capital of Beijing, where your adoption can be priority for our staff. This office is vital to bring your child home as soon as possible! Great Wall’s China Division is fully staffed by bi-lingual, passionate staff.

Our StoryAt the same time, China was rapidly beginning to improve its Civil Affairs system regarding orphaned and abandoned children, establishing the China Center for Adoption Affairs (CCAA) in 1996 (now known as the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption). The same year, Snow Wu established Great Wall China Adoption, an agency that would soon become one of the leading and most recognized agencies in uniting parents with children from China. Her devotion to helping children find loving homes has led to placing over 9,000 children with their own forever families.

Great Wall China Adoption organization has forged a strong and lasting relationship with the CCCWA as they work together to not only improve the conditions for those who currently work and live in Social Welfare Institutes, but to secure the happiness of the forever families created by this program.
