CCI's Taiwan Program is on Hold Indefinitely:
We are not accepting applications at this time.
CCI can only place healthy infants to adoptive parents in the State of Kentucky. In addition, couples who have more than one biological child (there is no limit on adopted children) may not adopt a healthy infant. Waiting older children, children with special needs, and sibling groups can be placed in all 50 states and the one biological child rule does not apply. This new procedure will remain in place at least through 2009. Parents must be 30-40 years old in order to adopt a healthy infant or young toddler. Parents over the age of 40 will be considered on a case-by-case basis to adopt a child from the waiting children's list.
Couples may adopt special needs, older children or sibling groups.
Preference is given to childless couples who have been married at least five years. However, age, length of marriage or family size will not necessarily disqualify a family. Singles are not allowed to adopt.
The primary goal is to find loving families for children in need of a home. Single people may able to adopt special needs or older children. This is handled on a case by case basis.
Children Available: Infant children who have been relinquished by their
birthmother as well as older children and siblings are available for adoption.

Adoptive parents must understand that post-adoption reports are vital to the continuance of adoption. It is easy to think post-adoption reports are not important or are an intrusion of one’s privacy, but failure to complete required reports can have far-reaching consequences on future adoptions from the child’s country. Adopting a child is not a one-time event that concludes once a child is home. Please consider the following requirements when choosing the country you wish to adopt from:
Most post-adoption reports are completed by the agency who conducted the home study for the adoption. If the home study agency is not available to conduct the reports, another qualified agency may be used. For most Taiwan adoptions, the agency must complete two post-adoption reports at 3 months and 12 months post-adoption. Two notarized copies of each report should be sent to CCI: one copy for Taiwan and one for CCI’s file. Recent photos are required with each report.
In addition to the reports prepared by an agency, parents must provide updates on the progress of their child. These parent-written updates are due at 6 months and 9 months post-adoption, followed by once per year after the 12 month agency report for a predetermined number of years set forth by the orphanage and/or birthparent. Two notarized copies of each report should be sent to CCI: one copy for Taiwan and one for CCI’s file. Recent photos are due with each report.
It is important to note that the above stated requirements may vary on a case-by-case basis. The orphanage and/or birthmother may request a different post-adoption report plan.
In addition, if the client’s state of residence and/or home-study agency requires additional reports above and beyond Taiwan’s requirements, CCI would also need two copies of such reports. CCI retains the right to request additional post-adoption reports at any time.
It is the client’s responsibility to contact their home study provider (or other qualified agency) as soon as the child arrives home. This is of the utmost importance as some home study agencies have a short window of time during which they must conduct the first report visit(s).
Adoptive parents have the opportunity to travel to Taiwan to bring their newly adopted child home.
Length of stay is usually 4-5 days. Escorts may be arranged on a case by case basis.
