Waiting Children in China!

The number of waiting children in China seems to grow every day. At Great Wall China Adoption, it is our priority to help as many of these children as possible find loving homes.

China’s international adoption program has been stable and efficient for many years, and we are privileged to work with them. If you are interested in adoptin

Adoptee Cultural Exchange in S

In our years processing adoptions and running heritage tours, we have often been asked what it is like for Chinese adoptees in other areas around the world. So we created our Adoptee Cultural Exchange Program, A.C.E. This exchange program provides Chinese adoptees a chance to explore their heritage and meet other children who have the same life experiences as they do all within the safe confines of a host family who also adopted a child from China. All the American girls are very

#WaitingChildWednesdays

As part of our #WaitingChildWednesdays series on older child adoption, we wanted to share with you a family story. This family adopted an aging out boy from China almost three years ago. This is a REAL story in the family’s own words (emphasis ours) that shows that adoption can be hard and take time – even after the finalization is official. But it is worth it. On June 23, 2015, a Facebook video crossed our paths and we both felt this boy was our son.  We really had
