Serving Taiwan Through Lifeline

The Taiwanese culture is kind, warm, and welcoming to adoptive families. We have a great relationship with Cathwel Service, and enjoy partnering with them to advocate for children who are waiting. They come alongside families as they are in country to help make their experience as seamless as possible. 

International Adoption

About Taiwan

Taiwan is a small country with a population of only 23.46 million; however, it is not immune to the orphan crisis. Taiwan is not a member of the Hague Convention, which makes the process of adopting from Taiwan unique and, at times, uncertain. In fact, a Taiwan adoption process resembles that of a domestic adoption process. Birth families are often actively involved in the adoption process, which is uncommon in international adoption. However, the involvement of the birth families gives adoptive families a unique opportunity to minister to a birth family who lives oceans away.

The Need

Out of the 6,441 incoming adoptions to the United States in 2014, only 69 of those were adoptions from Taiwan.

How You Can Help

Lifeline is committed to seeing more children coming home by advocating for the orphaned in Taiwan, especially older children and children with more moderate to severe medical special needs, and by walking families through the process of adopting children from Taiwan.
