Per the Wall Street Journal, Chinese Reach Out to Orphans there has been a huge outpouring within China to adopt any orphans of the Earthquake.

Demand exceeds supply.

Key Quote from the article:

The sad reality is that there may not be many orphans, officials say, because many of the estimated 50,000 dead are children. The earthquake came during school hours on a Monday and demolished many schools. Authorities aren't showing any signs that they will make it easier for foreign families to adopt the children, after implementing tough new adoption rules last year.

And per the Official Chinese Media the adoption process will take a year:
