Prospective adoptive families use the MCC to tell CCAI of their openness in terms of a child’s age, gender, and medical needs, and we keep them on file in the order of the date they were received. Then, as we receive new children’s files, we take each one individually and search those waiting MCCs for a family potentially open to that child’s age, gender, and medical need(s), and call that family directly – we contact one family about one child at a time. If there’s more than one possible family, we’ll call the one whose MCC has been on file the longest, first. If the first family isn’t able to move forward, we call the next family, and so on. That’s how most (as in 70-80%) children find their families, but there are always some children who, for whatever reason, don’t match any of the MCCs we have on file, and those are the sweet faces you will see on our Child Profiles. Please feel welcome to inquire with us about any of these children!
