Welcome to Adoption Australia. The following is a little more information on what is involved in the adoption process.
There are many children in China living in orphanages waiting for families. Most of the children offered for international adoption are girls and special needs children. China is one of the most reliable countries to adopt from although the selection process can be harrowing and personal information such as income, age and weight is often required.
The process for intercountry adoption can vary between countries but in many cases it follows this format;
- Enquiry - Education program - Application, assessment and approval - Home study, waiting and matching a child to you - Travel to china to meet and pick up your child - Supervision and application for your child to receive Australian citizenship - Completion – 1 year after receiving your child, both governments will finalise the adoption.
If you are wanting to adopt from China we can provide the following;
Detailed information on the adoption process in your state, and information on inter-country (overseas) adoption. We can specify details on the eligibility criteria from countries that are open to adoption by Australian families, and estimated costs and fees for the various adoption processes, as well as give information on international law and how this effects inter-country adoptions.
