We have established a long-term relationship with the China Center for Children’s Welfare & Adoption (CCCWA) as a result of many years of successfully placing these waiting children in loving homes. Barker accesses waiting-children files through The Shared List Program, a CCCWA-maintained electronic and secure listing of adoptable children with identified medical conditions. Barker also receives the files of children assigned specifically to our agency through the following programs: (1) Barker’s one-on-one orphanage partnerships program and (2) Barker’s Journey of Hope Program. Here is our current photo listing of children waiting for families. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in learning more about the children in our programs.
To hear more about adopting a child through this program, watch this video from the couple shown here who shared their thoughts about the adoption process and their personal experience. The ages of children in the China Waiting Children Program include infants through children age 14. They have a wide range of special needs. Some have minor correctable needs, while others have more severe and permanent medical needs. Children who are older than age 10 and don’t have known medical needs also are sometimes placed through this program. For families who are not yet familiar with what it might mean to adopt one of these amazing waiting children, this video explains far better than words can. Thank you to Love Without Boundaries for creating this video and allowing us to share it with you.
