China Adoption


In 1994, the Gladney Center for Adoption's first internationally adopted child came home to the United States from Shanghai, China. Since that time, Gladney has placed more than 1,100 children born in China with families living in the United States. Now, in 2015, China continues to be one of the largest and most stable international adoption programs.

The China adoption program of today, overseen by the China Centre for Children’s Welfare and Adoption in Beijing, focuses on finding families for children with a diagnosed medical need and children who are physically healthy and over the age of 6. Gladney’s established adoption program in China is as strong as ever! We have enjoyed working even more closely with adopting parents over the past few years. With pre-adoption training to prepare parents, humanitarian aid trips to benefit children in our partnership orphanages, and post-adoption support to all family members, Gladney is proud to be a part of creating hope for children and parents.
