Our Work in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has a sophisticated, well-managed child welfare system. Bethany Global has facilitated international adoptions from Hong Kong since 1999. Today, we partner with three organizations that are all accredited by the Central Authority in Hong Kong to find loving homes for children with special placement needs.

Meet the Children

Children range in age from 6 months to 15 years. They have been residing in group homes, foster care, hospitals, or specialized boarding schools. Parents should be open adopting a child with moderate to significant special placement needs. Many of the children who come home from Hong Kong have Down syndrome. Both boys and girls are eligible for adoption, but there are more boys than girls. Siblings and twins are rare. Some children from Hong Kong may already be exposed to English.

Adoption from Hong Kong

In 1999, Bethany began a partnership with Mother’s Choice, a Christian social service organization whose focus is finding adoptive homes for children with special placement needs. In 2004, we began to partner with International Social Services to facilitate international adoptions. More recently, we have begun to work with Po Leung Kuk. Bethany is the only U.S. agency that partners with all three of these organizations in Hong Kong.
