Working collaboratively with the China Center of Adoption Affairs (CCAA), HAPS announces its China Waiting Child Program

Patience, compassion, persistence and unconditional love are key elements in the adoption process especially when it comes to a program such as a ‘Waiting Child’ Program.  A ‘waiting child’ is a child who, due to various factors such as medical special needs, developmental and/or emotional delays, or simply being an older child ready to be adopted, is not yet part of a permanent family.   For adoptees and adoptive parents, this type of program is unique and an undeniably mutually rewarding life journey.  Once the paperwork is in China, the wait time is normally less than 10 months.
“We embrace children from all parts of the People’s Republic of China with a wide variety of special needs ranging from cleft lip and palate to cerebral palsy and heart conditions to Hepatitis B to name a few,” notes Andrea Lee, HAPS China Program Director,  “We firmly believe every child deserves a loving, permanent family, and we count it a blessing to partner with the CCAA to help reach this goal. However, we do realize that not all families are called to adopt a child with special needs and we deeply respect each family’s decision.”
Homestudies and Adoption Placement Services has the resources and experience to fulfill all aspects of this unique adoption process.  Comprehensive information regarding the program can be found at
