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. Taiwan has two different adoption programs. Some agencies work within one program only.
Approval of birthparents or the birthfamily is often part of the process.
The two programs are divided. One program places healthy infants, and is a very small program. The other program places special needs and older children, although there are often siblings and relatively healthy toddlers available through this program. Medicals and social backgrounds are excellent. Families wishing to adopt from Taiwan often receive very detailed information on children, including videos.
Couples married for at least five years may adopt from Taiwan. Single applications are not being accepted at this time. Applicants should be in the age range of 25 to 55 years old.
Healthy infant adoption from Taiwan can take a considerable amount of time, and the timeline should be confirmed by your placing-agency. Those who wish to adopt a waiting child, may expect a timeline of approximately 12 months post-dossier submission.
At least one parent must travel to Taiwan for approximately 2 weeks.
