Between 1 January 2010 and 31 December 2014, the Department for Education has processed a total of 73 inter-country adoptions where China is the child’s country of origin.

This figure relates to inter-country adoption cases in which the adopters are habitually resident in England only, as adoption is a devolved matter.
