Adopting a Child of Chinese Heritage

Chinese Inter-country adoption programs currently exist for the People's Republic of China, the Republic of China (Taiwan) and Hong Kong.  Domestic adoptions may also involve children of Chinese heritage.  


All adoptions in South Australia are administered by the Adoption Family Information Service (AFIS), which is part of the Department of Family and Community Services. AFIS will be able to provide you with information and advice relating to available adoption programs. 


However the Chinese have a saying that "to know the road ahead, you must ask those who are coming back. For this reason the SACAS Board encourage you to make use of this web site; to email SACAS with your questions; or to simply attend one of our events and network with our many helpful and supportive members. SACAS also recommends that you become involved in the "Host Family Scheme" coordinated through AFIS. This scheme puts families in touch with those who have successfully completed the process. The information and friendships gained through this program are invaluable.
