"Family is a circle that has love as its center
and happiness as its radius."

- Peng Weng Ming, 21st Century

ICC’s Adoptive Family Network was established to connect families, support our children and make a difference in the lives of children in China. We love our adoption families, and want to grow connections between families and children. These relationships give support, understanding and connection to our children’s heritage. Reunions, regional events and Facebook groups are some of the ways we connect.
