Special Message


The Council on Accreditation (COA), a national accrediting entity designated by the US Department of State to provide Hague Accreditation and Approval, invites the public to provide comment on intercountry adoption service providers seeking Hague Accreditation, Approval or Renewal. You are invited to provide comments through COA’s website.



Dear Adoptive Families,

As our adopted children grow into adolescence, our families will face numerous challenges.  Recently, I have been researching the attachment process and how it relates to adolescence.  During this life stage, our children will become more independent as they discover their own identities.  We invite our families to learn about this process with us, and to support one another as much as possible.  To learn more please click here.

We appreciate your input on these issues! Thank you!


Teen Girls Go “Home” in China

touching home.jpg

Two teenaged girls — adopted through China Adoption with Love in June 1997 — returned to the Chinese towns where they’d been found as newborns. There, they learned what growing up as a girl in rural China might have been like for them. Chinese girls who grew up in these towns as only-child daughters guided them on this journey of discovery. Through digital storytelling project, the American and Chinese girls describe what they learned from each other. Their stories are also told in a series of six iBooks, three of which have been published. By the fall of 2016, curricula written for this project will be available on its website, as the girls’ stories begin to be taught in classrooms from middle school to early college years. Please check out our "Teens Go 'Home' to China " page under the Teen Center tab!

Thank You, Our Children

A letter to our children from Lillian Zhang, Director of China Adoption with Love Inc.

This letter was first published in the agency’s newsletter in 2000. During all these years many parents suggested that I say something on our website to specify the agency’s mission and philosophy. I thought long and hard but still feel I have said it all in this letter. I hope all families who have children from China and who will have children from China also learn from this letter that we are all very thankful to you too! Thank you for your great parenting! Thank you for your enthusiasm and involvement after adoption! ~Lillian  Read Letter »
