Chinese child

Do you have the ability and sensitivity to raise a child who looks different from you? Can you provide positive Asian role models? Are you prepared to learn about your child's country and its culture to share with your child?

Times have changed and Albertans are no longer able to arrange for a fairly quick  adoption of a relatively healthy female child from China.  Countries can change their policies at any time and families must be aware that this could happen at any time during their adoption process. 

Some families have accepted a placement of a child with significant special needs from countries like Taiwan or Vietnam. 

India may be a possibility for families with Indian heritage.  The current rules for the Philippines can be found  on the website for Inter-Country Adoption Board  www.icab.gov.ph
