The People's Republic of China, with a population of 1.3 billion people, has the second largest economy in the world. The country recognizes 56 distinct ethnic groups, the largest of which is the Han Chinese, comprising about 91 percent of the population. China has a rich heritage with a creative people who have produced classic literature, and also invented paper, gunpowder, and the magnetic compass.
Dillon International began placing children from the People's Republic of China with U.S. families in 1993. As more infants are adopted domestically, the children with the greatest need for families are children with special needs and older children. Dillon International participates in the China Centre for Children's Welfare and Adoption (CCCWA)'s special needs program and has access to the CCCWA shared agency list of children with special needs.
Children Eligible for Adoption from this Program:
• Boys and girls from infant to 13 years old
• All children will have identified special needs ranging from minor and/or correctable to significant needs
For information on China's eligibility requirements for prospective families, an outline of the adoption process and overview of the fees and expenses, please download our Adoption Guide.
