The process to adopt a child with a medical or developmental condition, or an older child, currently stands at 12-24 months from application to placement. A family requesting a toddler-age girl with a minor condition should plan for the longer end of the range. Families who are open to a broader age range, open to a boy and/or open to a broad special needs profile will typically get through the process in 12-18 months or less. Either way, China is one of the fastest and most stable adoption programs.
We will work together every step of the way. Don’t worry.
