Madison Adoption Associates has been working as an agency approved by the China Center for 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. 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.
Madison Adoption Associates is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency licensed to place children through international adoption.
We are currently offering adoption programs in the countries of China, Philippines, El Salvador, and Bulgaria.
