China Waiting Children – Lifeline’s individual special focus list

 

The children below are specifically assigned to Lifeline by the CCCWA for the special focus program. We are blessed to be able to advocate for these precious children. To be matched with one of these children, you will need to have a dossier in China within 6 months.

**We try to keep this list as accurate and updated as possible. However, all of the children listed are from our agency specific “special focus” list and may have already found a family by the time you inquire about them. If you have any questions about any of the children listed please contact us.**

For any questions or inquiries about the special focus children assigned specifically to Lifeline below, please contact Lisa Kelly at Lisa.Kelly@LifelineChild.org or call 785-783-4565. If you are already a Lifeline family, please contact your social worker that you are currently working with for more information about the child you are interested in below.

All information and content included on this website, including but not limited to text, graphics, logos, icons, images, audio clips, digital downloads is the property of the owner, or in some cases, a shared list supplier. You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, publish, or sell any information from this website without the expressed written consent of Lifeline Children’s Services.

We work with a wonderful organization, the International Adoption Clinic at UAB, located in Birmingham, AL, that can help you learn what might be involved medically with each child before you adopt. The International Clinic can also provide physical and occupational therapy as well as medical expertise after you adopt your child. They are wonderful in helping your family to be better prepared for your special needs child as well as a wonderful place to take your child after you return home from China.

**Please note that we are publishing only when a child has been matched and PA (preliminary approval) has been received from China.  Lifeline will maintain internal “holds” for children and continue to form a list of interest as requests are received**
