Description One Child - Two Children: Chinese Adoption Travel

Beginning in the 1990s, the 'One Child' policy and the opening of China resulted in a diaspora of Chinese children; over 70,000 children have found families in the United States alone. We have traveled twice to China to adopt and we will discuss this peculiar but wonderful way to build a family and the international travel that is a necessary, and difficult, and wonderful part of the process. We will describe our travels to Hong Kong, Guilin, Xi'an, Beijing, Lanzhou, Zhengzhou, and Guangzhou China and a bit of our Chinese-American adoption story as we go along.
