There are no unwanted children...just unfound families
China Waiting

Madison Adoption Associates has been working as an agency approved Children's Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA) since 2005. We are very pleased with the good relationship we have with CCCWA and the hundreds of children with special needs who have found their families through Madison Adoption Associates.

CCCWA began implementing an on-line referral system within the last several years. This system includes a list of children assigned specifically to Madison Adoption Associates for placement with a family, and the "Shared List" of children who are available to be matched with families by any of the CCCWA-approved agencies. MAA is one of the approved agencies to match children from CCCWA's lists.

Families who are considering the adoption of a child with special needs can identify certain medical conditions that they can accept in their child (edited by Mr. garcia). Families must show that they have researched these particular conditions and spoken to medical professionals in the field.

MAA's China In-Country Coordinator, Ming Cao, lives in Beijing and brings a vast amount of knowledge and experience regarding Chinese adoptions. She graduated from Beijing University, has taken college classes in the United States, and has a grown daughter who lives and works in the US. We are very fortunate to have Ming on our staff and looking out for our adoptive families and children. She is our contact person in China for communication with CCCWA and she advises us of changes in procedures for China cases.

For families considering adoption through the China Waiting Child Program, the adoption procedures are listed below.


Summary of Adoption Procedures:
  • Prospective adoptive families must submit a completed Prospective Adoptive Parents - Waiting Child Review Form before Madison can discuss the details of a specific waiting child.
  • All adoptive families must complete a home study assessment according to Hague requirements.
  • All adoptive parents must submit a Form I-800A to USCIS to receive immigration approval for an adopted child.
  • All adoptive families must apply to Madison Adoption Associates for the China Special Needs Program.
  • All adoptive families must complete a dossier and receive a log-in date (LID) from CCCWA to consider a child with minor special needs.
  • All adoptive families must commit to accepting post-adoption supervision and provide post-adoption reports as required.
