These America World families shared photos of their sightseeing moments in China as they prepared to meet their children for the first time. We look forward to welcoming them all home soon!

For those interested in adopting a boy, now is a great time to consider a boy of any age from China as our wait times are at an all-time low for families open to boys with needs commonly seen in China. We continue to match our families open to boys very quickly and currently it is an average of 10-18 months from starting your process to arriving back home with your son!

The current timeframe at America World for girls, based on commonly seen medical needs, is 10-24 months on average from starting the process to coming home with your daughter (based on a 6-month average dossier building timeframe). Families who are currently in our China waiting child program are given first priority for matching before we advocate for any children.

If you’ve been thinking about adopting from China and not taken that next step, now is a great time to consider adopting a boy or girl through our Waiting Child Program. Any questions can be directed to our China staff at or call our staff at 800-429-3369. Please let us know if we can help with any questions about the adoption process.
