Any official agency review/evaluation/ranking from government?

I’ve learned a lot about the agencies from the review and experience shared here. Thank you everyone for your sharing!!!
I am just wondering if the federal or state government provides review/ranking/evaluation result for each individual licensed agency, especially for international adoption agency? Would be wonderful if anyone knows the access to this kind of information or can guide us to find which department to ask for this info.

For example, in an Asian country we’re particularly interested in, I’ve found the evaluation and ranking result on the Child Welfare department website. I just wonder if we can find similar information or report on the U.S. side.

Thank you in advance for any suggestion and information!


We are working with Heartsent Adoptions based in California and the orphanage is Cathwel in Taiwan. We are adopting a sibling pair ages 6 and 9. Both agencies have been incredible. We have had 6 Skype calls with our kids including a Christmas celebration where we decorated our house for the holidays and showed them and they opened their Christmas gifts with us. Cathwel submitted our dossier to the government a few weeks ago and now we are eagerly awaiting a court date and to fly to Taiwan to get parental rights assigned to us. After that, there is one more step before we can bring them home. We need to get the final decree and then we fly back to Taiwan to bring our daughter and son home. We are so excited. It has been a long process but Heartsent and Cathwel have been great to work with.
