Adopting from China

Special Announcement: On March 28, 2011, Pearl S. Buck International received word from our facilitator in China, Ms. Li Xinghong, that Welcome House was officially recognized and awarded by the China Centre for Children’s Welfare and Adoption as one of the top 20 adoption agencies out of 163 agencies worldwide!

Since 1992, Welcome House has been working with the Chinese government to find families for Chinese children. We are approved by the China Centre for Children's Welfare and Adoption to place children with families throughout the United States. There are thousands of children, primarily girls, waiting for a permanent family, and we hope you will consider adopting a child from China. Our experienced staff in the U.S. and China will provide you with support throughout the adoption process. Our Adoption Coordinator in Beijing will lead you through the adoption process while in China.
