Attend an Information Webinar
Request an Information Packet
Join our Adoption Information Zoom Meeting on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:00 pm MST. Our co-founder Joshua Zhong and a team of adoption experts promise you an inspirational, informative, and heartfelt presentation on each of CCAI’s programs. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to ask all your questions and move one big step closer to finding the right agency for your family.
Choosing the right program for your family can be a frustrating and overwhelming process! Considering this, if you would like a hard copy of in-depth information about any of our programs to read through at your own pace, you can request an information packet to be mailed to your door. As always, we’re just one call away no matter where you are in the process.
Home Study Services
As a Hague-accredited child placement agency licensed in the states of Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Wyoming (as well as China and southeast Asia), CCAI offers complete international and domestic home study services to adoptive families residing in these states, regardless of whether you use CCAI as your placing agency or you are working with another placing agency to adopt through another program.
Parent training helps prospective adoptive parents consider the emotional, ethical, financial, and legal implications of adopting a child. Not only will you learn how to prepare for the arrival of a new child into your home, but you will consider the emotional, physical, and medical issues that come with that transition.
- CCAI has developed a curriculum to help prospective adoptive parents be prepared to meet the known and unknown needs of their adoptive child
- Our curriculum is designed to equip prospective adoptive parents with the tools they will need to effectively parent their child through their initial transition into their family and throughout the years to come
- We help to provide prospective adoptive parents, both in Colorado and throughout the US, with knowledge and resources to parent a child adopted domestically or internationally
Even if you’re already an experienced parent or an experienced adoptive parent, this training will help you to better understand what your new child has been through and how to best integrate them into your family.
Additionally, parent training is an adoption requirement for the State of Colorado and The Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption. The goal is to prepare prospective adoptive families as much as possible for the adoption of a child domestically or internationally, including the preparation for an older child. CCAI offers both live face-to-face via Zoom and online training for families throughout the US.
For prospective families who reside in Colorado:
- CCAI provides face-to-face parent training on specific topics as required by the State of Colorado for both domestic and intercountry adoptions
- CCAI’s face-to-face parent training meets the requirements of the State of Colorado and the Hague Convention for intercountry adoptions
For prospective adoptive families who reside outside of Colorado:
- CCAI’s online parent training meets the requirements of the Hague Convention for intercountry adoptions
- CCAI provides three required face-to-face training classes via Zoom for all families adopting internationally
- Additional face-to-face training classes through CCAI are available via Zoom
Preparation for what to expect regarding:
- Bonding and Attachment

- Talking to Your Child about Adoption
- Being a Multi-Cultural Family
- Adopting a Special Needs Child

The live, face-to-face parent training allows prospective adoptive families the opportunity to:

- Connect with the parent training expert for additional resources and support in preparation for adoption
CCAI parent trainers are professional experts in the field of adoption. In addition, most also have personal experience with adoption, either having been adopted or have adopted one or more children. They are all very knowledgeable and experienced in adoption, attachment, and trauma and are committed to preparing prospective adoptive families for their adoption journeys.
