Hong Kong Adoption

Adoption From Hong Kong.

 

Hong Kong is a unique area controlled by the government of China. Established as the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) of China on 1 July 1997. Governed by a "one country, two systems" formula. The country is a series of islands roughly 6 times the size of Washington DC.

Adopted children from Hong Kong are generally between the ages of 2 and 8 years old. Most of the children have a medical and/or developmental issue considered to be in the moderate-plus range. It is uncommon, but occasionally a non-special needs child will be adopted who was placed due to a family background issue. Most special needs children have a combination of issues.



Prospective adoptive parents will receive extensive background, medical, social and developmental information along with pictures and an occasional video prior to the adoption. Medical care in Hong Kong is very modern and up-to-date.

The adoption process generally happens one of two ways. Either the prospective parents have identified a child prior to beginning the process or a traditional dossier and referral occur. Wait times depend on the age of the child, but once a dossier is submitted, prospective parents will wait approximately 5 to 8 months before traveling. Travel is not required buy is often encouraged and often is as brief as 5 days.
Singles are accepted.
