Chinese Children with Special Needs
International Family Services has access to the Shared List of waiting special needs children that is provided by the Chinese Center for Adoption Affairs (CCAA). Please click Waiting Children.
Please understand that children on the Shared List, including the children on the Waiting Children page, may be matched by any agency that is accredited by the CCAA to conduct adoptions. As a result, one or more of these children may have already been matched with a family. IFS attempts to keep this Waiting Children page updated with children that we know are currently waiting for families, but this can change at any time.

In accordance with the laws and policies of the U.S. and those of the countries of origin, IFS cannot/will not refer a child to a family until they are contracted with IFS, have a completed (approved) home study and IFS has received written approval of the referral from the family’s home study agency. At that time, the family will be contacted by a member of the IFS team (the Program Director or Assistant Program Director) with the child referral documents.
