A HISTORY OF ADOPTION IN CHINA
The Marseille Œuvre de l’Adoption received its accreditation on 4 January 2005 from the central authority CCCWA (China Centre for Children’s Welfare and Adoption). On February 4 of the same year, its clearance was approved and published in the Official Journal on February 19.
On 31 May 2005, we signed a cooperation agreement with BLAS (Bridge of Love Adoption Service), a tourism and translation department accountable to the CCCWA. Towards the end of 2005, 10 children were greeted by their families.
Since then, 150 more children have joined their families.
n the early years, children were all aged between 1 and 2 years, and tended to be healthy girls. Now waiting times have grown considerably longer and the vast majority of children who have arrived in recent years were the result of a ONE TO ONE partnership in 2013 between the CCCWA and the ZHANJIANG orphanage.
The 35 children who arrived from ZHANJIANG suffered from mild, reversible conditions (unilateral cleft lips and palates, VSD or AVSD-type heart conditions, ear, or finger malformations, etc.).
We offered support to all our candidates, walking them through the adoption of SN children (special needs children: older children or with mild, reversible conditions).
Since 2018, the CCCWA provides a monthly list of SN children to all host countries on their internet server.
