Advocate for Taiwan
International adoption from the country of Taiwan is a small program. Taiwan is a developed nation with an educated populace and good infrastructure. Children who cannot be parented by their families of birth are first available for domestic adoption within Taiwan.
Approval of birthparents or the birthfamily is often part of the process.
There are often siblings and relatively healthy toddlers available through this program. Boys and girls of all ages, sibilng groups and waiting children are available for adoption to qualifying families. Medicals and social backgrounds are excellent. Families wishing to adopt from Taiwan often receive very detailed information on children, including videos. Most children available for international adoption in Taiwan have complex backgrounds and may have difficult social histories that are similar to those of children coming from the US foster care system. Some are orphans, whereas most have living parents who are unable to care for them. Children live in foster families or institutions, and are generally very well prepared for their adoption. Pre-adoptive families will be able to communicate with their child regularly (if age 3+) through SKYPE sessions prior to traveling to adopt.
Couples, ages 25-55, married two or more years may adopt from Taiwan. Single applications are not being accepted at this time.
Famillies adopting a waiting child may expect a timeline of approximately 12 months post-dossier submission.
Both parents must travel to Taiwan for approximately 7 days.
