Adoption From Taiwan

As many of you know, Superkids took a trip to Taiwan in April. This was the 4th time we have been able to visit our partnership agencies there. We have met so many adorable little ones and older ones on these trips!



The Taiwan program is a growing international adoption program. We have seen a steady increase in the number of children coming home from Taiwan since Superkids started visiting in 2015.



One of the great things about Taiwan is that families only need an international home study to be considered as a potential family for a child. You can see the list of guidelines for adopting from Taiwan here. If you are interested in a child you see us advocating for be sure to contact us and we can help you decide if Taiwan is a good fit for your family.



We have partnerships with 2 agencies in Taiwan and we receive referrals of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers from these partnerships. Most of the younger children have a medical need of some kind. We also receive referrals of older children, some with medical needs and some without. There are also sibling groups available for adoption.



The files of children from Taiwan generally contain a lot of information! There is often information about the child's biological family. The care the children in our partnership agencies receive is outstanding.



If you would like to explore the option of adopting from Taiwan further please contact our Taiwan caseworker, Mary Chapman, at mary.chapman@gladney.org.
