Newsletter- Summer 2013

Here is the newest edition of our Summer 2013 Newsletter! http://issuu.com/chinaschildreninternational/docs/mfaua

To the readers of this newsletter,

We are China’s Children International, an organization for adoptees, by adoptees. This is Katie Holz, one of the Board Members of CCI and the manager of this project.  I am so excited to share this project with you all. But I could not have done it alone...

CCI’s “Message from an Unknown Adoptee” Special Edition Summer Newsletter comes at a time when the Chinese adoptee community is growing by leaps and bounds, connecting in new and important ways.  I couldn’t be more thrilled to share these heartfelt messages with our parents, friends, and the adoptee community. I wish to thank Xinran for her inspiring novels and kindness towards Chinese adoptees, as well as Hannah Lyon, Nicole G., and the CCI Board, who all patiently edited countless drafts with me.  I also wish to thank the organizations who have worked with CCI and helped promote this project.  And finally, I wish to thank the adoptees and adoptee families who have supported us from the very beginning.

To the contributors, everyone from CCI carries deep gratitude to you for sharing your unique, personal experiences.  We literally couldn’t have done this without you, adoptees.  As the editors, arrangers, and planners, we are simply awed by the power of YOU.  


Katie Holz and the rest of the CCI Board

  1. Great job editors and contributors. As an adoptive mom I found the content heart warming, challenging and educational! My children thought it was affirming and nice to know there own thoughts and feelings are shared by others.

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback and letting us know how your children feel about it! It means a lot to us, thanks again! :)
