ADOPTIVE FAMILIES NETWORK
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.
“ICC provided our daughter with family-style living and she was so loved and well cared for. She had attached to her caregivers and has now been able to fit perfectly in to our family with strong, healthy attachments. We are so grateful for ICC and can attest that their approach to caring for their children is life-changing.”
