Some of these guidelines may be flexible, on a case-by-case basis, so please contact us about your specific situation to see if you may qualify.  If you wish to work with MAA for the Hong Kong program, you need to apply and pay a preliminary fee in order for us to submit your profile.  If you are chosen for that child, you will then contract with our agency within 30 days of notice and commit to submitting your dossier promptly.  If you are unsure if you meet the above guidelines, please consult with the staff at MAA prior to submitting an application.
