China Adoption with Love, Inc. was established in 1995 in response to the increasing need for adoption services from China. We are accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA). We are a licensed child placement agency in Massachusetts, a 501(c)(3) federal nonprofit organization and fully registered with the China Center of Childen's Welfare and Adoption. We are also now licensed in Florida, Maine, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire! This means that we are able to conduct home studies and post adoption services only in those states, however, WE ARE ABLE TO PLACE IN ALL 50 STATES!
Our mission is to find homes for children. Each placement is a beautiful story from which we learn and grow. Although the job is not easy, we love our work more and more when we see our children blossom. To establish or to expand a family through adoption is an important decision. Adoption is about love. The adoptive parents will receive it as well as give it. We believe that adoptive parents should be an integral part of adoption and get involved in all decision-making processes. Adoption should be a pleasant and satisfying process, not an ordeal.
As our agency's name indicates, we only place children from China. With great appreciation of American and Chinese culture, our philosophy and practice combine the strength of both. While the best interests of our children are our utmost priority and principle, they do not necessarily work against the best interests of adoptive parents. The quality standards for our services are: Being effective and efficient, personable and affordable.
We believe that it is important for adoptive parents to learn and to respect the children's Chinese heritage. It not only helps with the bonding in family, but also helps the children grow up in our "melting pot" society. We provide home study, placement, and post adoption services. Throughout our services, we encourage parents to read about China, to join parents support groups and to take part in local Chinese activities.
Our Board of Directors: Members: Gail Gordon (adoptive parent), Margaret McNeill (adoptee), Stephen Werth (adoptive parent), Willian Yee, Lillian Zhang, Chairman: Paul Sahovey (adoptive parent)

Hague Convention Accreditation
Our agency submitted our application for the accreditation right after the form became available and became Hague Accredited in March of 2008. High service is our agency’s goal since we started the agency. We passed the COA accreditation in 2003 and the Hague accreditation in 2008 and 2012. We take pride in our responsible financial management style and we will continue our practice of efficiency and effectiveness. Since we started in 1995, our program has had the lowest total cost in the country and we are committed to maintaining this low cost into the future.
