The process of adopting a Waiting Child through GWCA starts here! Our Waiting Child Program offers families the opportunity to adopt a child with special needs. Often, these children are the most vulnerable and need your love, support, and healing. The CCCWA has recognized Great Wall China Adoption with the #1 rating among agencies in the US for placing Special Focus children in the Waiting Child program. There are over 2,000 children currently available for adoption through the Waiting Child Program from China, and it is our goal to advocate for these children to find homes for as many of them as possible.

Finding Your Forever Child
Great Wall China Adoption has access to a minimum of 10 different lists in order to help match you with your Waiting Child. For more information about these lists and how our matching specialists will work with your family to find your child, be sure to review our free China Information Guide!
Great Wall has been honored to participate in several special projects upon the invitation of the CCCWA. Through our Orphanage Partnerships, Great Wall provides support and assistance to each of the 16 orphanages that we partner with. Great Wall is privileged to help orphanages become more involved in international adoption by assisting them with the necessary resources to refer their children to the CCCWA.
GWCA staff members have been able to visit each of the orphanages that we’re partnered with, and meet the caregivers, foster parents, and directors personally. We have also been able to meet and personally interview hundreds of children from these orphanages. This information has been invaluable for our families and has helped in preparing to bring their children home.
