Waiting Child Match Samples

CCAI invites interested families to complete a Medical Conditions Checklist (MCC) (and Family Information Sheet, if not already in process with CCAI), which is your opportunity to communicate to us the gender and age range of the child you are seeking to adopt, as well as the medical conditions you are open to. As Waiting Children’s files are made available to us, whether via our agency-specific list of children or the Shared List, we consider those MCCs (in the order in which they arrived) to determine a potential match. We contact individual families directly about one child’s file, and will immediately email all available information about that child.

When your family reviews a child’s file for adoption, the information made available from the orphanage via the China Center for Children’s Welfare & Adoption (CCCWA) will include:

  • Several photographs, including, if applicable, the physical appearance of a visible medical condition
  • A physical examination (view a sample)
  • Medical information relating to the child’s condition, if available (view a sample)
  • Basic developmental information (view a sample)
  • Background information, generally outlining the child’s personality, preferences, history in the orphanage, and daily routine (view a sample)

All of this information is translated and is available for families to review when considering a Waiting Child.
