*These figures represent the total number of families who have applied to adopt through one of our international adoption programs.
Children of the World adoption agency does not currently have a domestic adoption program.
Both of International Adoption programs offered by our agency (China & India) matching families, at the appropriate time, with waiting children from the respective adoption authority’s list of available referrals. All adoption agencies registered with the authority (to adopt from that country) have access to these lists for potential placement (commonly referred to as “shared lists”). Thereby, Children of the World does not maintain an exclusive listing (number) of children eligible for adoption and awaiting an adoptive placement.
