Waiting Children Program:
The China Program is excited to announce that the â€œSpecial Needs Programâ€ will now be called the â€œChina Waiting Children Program.â€ This program title change better reflects the children available for adoption through Chinaâ€™s Special Needs Department. Children referred through this program may have special needs or may be a healthy older child. For more information, please see the previous “China Waiting Children Program” post.
The current wait time from LID to referral is 26-27 months with the trend of increasing by roughly a half to a full month every month.
