This section will help in you finding the average amount of time that passes during the process of adopting a child from China.

How Long Does it take to Adopt a Child from China?

The time will typically vary from 36-48 months or longer. Usually, the biggest factor influencing the wait for a child will be the time it takes the CCAA to make a referral to a family. The current referral time is approximately eight (8) months after dossiers are submitted to China and registered with the CCAA. China offers a special Expedited Referral Service, which allows parents to receive referrals in a shorter amount of time if the adopting family is interested in adopting a child with severe special needs or if one or both parents were born in China, Hong Kong, or Taiwan.
