    Cool Adoption

    We have recently adopted a child in Hong Kong and I am trying to find the contact details of any association here for people like us to meet up etc.

    Adoption

    hi Tracy, may I know how you adopt your child in HK? What procedures you need to take? As me and my hubby are interested to adopt a child in HK, but people said we must be infertile and the procedures are complicated...is this true?

    Chinese/Korean Adoption by US citizens living in HK

    My husband and I are US citizens (he's of Korean descent and I'm of Chinese descent). We would like to adopt from Korea (first choice) or China. Does anybody have any advice or contacts that can assist us? I believe we should use an agency in the US to facilitate the adoption but they cannot do a homestudy in HK. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Just out of curiousity, have you looked at adopting from HK itself? I've thought of China but China has a myriad of issues to begin with. For starters, one can never be really sure if the child is really abandoned, orphaned or stolen. With Korea, I don't know since that has never crossed my mind.

    We are in the process of adopting in HK.

    Thanks for your reply.

    We have considered HK but we read and heard that most children are a bit older and/or have health issues and I must admit, I'm not prepared for that. Can you share your experiences? I do have the same China concern that you discussed. I'd be willing to consider HK if we could choose a healthy child.

    Are you currently based in HK? If you are and have been based here for at least a year, you can start the process. And if you're adopting from HK and you're here yourself, you can chose to adopt a young child with no health issues but the wait might be longer.
