Dear Prospective CCAI Family,

Thank you for your interest in applying to adopt a Chinese child through CCAI. We are able to serve U. S. families living in China, as both your placement agency, as well as your home study agency (we do have several social workers in China). At least one parent must be a U.S. citizen, due to our state licensing regulations. In addition, the CCCWA (the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption-the central authority for all international adoptions in China) only allows us, as an American agency, to serve American families.

It is important that you are fully informed before you apply. Please follow the two simple steps below:

  • ONE: Review the Qualifications to Adopt from China for waiting child adoption carefully to do a quick self-evaluation. Please email us with any questions.
  • TWO: Download the application and save it to your computer. Once you have filled it out completely, submit the application and appropriate fee to CCAI by one of the following options:
    1. Upload to CCAI website
    2. Send as an attachment via email to
    3. Fax to303-850-9997
    4. Mail to: CCAI, Attention Hillary Karsten, 6920 S. Holly Circle, Centennial, CO 80112
  • THREE: Create/Submit a Medical Conditions Checklist which tells us what age, gender and medical conditions you are open to. The MCC also places you 'in-line' to be matched. We can accept your MCC as soon as you submit your Application for Adoption.
  • FOUR: Review a SAMPLE of our Fee Policy/Agreement and Service Agreement.

If you have any questions about the adoption process or need assistance while completing the application, please email us or call 303-850-9998 ext. 41.
