The Shared List does not include children who are part of adoption agency orphanage partnerships, children who appear only on an adoption agency’s individual advocacy list or children whom the orphanage has not created a file with CCCWA.  The Shared List is updated daily on the CCCWA website.  Red Thread Advocates posts monthly statistics to give an overall view of adoption trends.

Children with more minor, correctable needs are part of a monthly file release from CCCWA.  Adoption agencies around the world lock files on those release dates in a matter of minutes.  Nearly all of those files are matched with waiting families.
