  WORKING TOGETHER TO FIGHT CORONA VIRUS Dear China Adoptees, Families and Friends: It is so special that we have a tie to China. The news about China always hits us hard because of this China tie.  Right now the people in China are fighting the biggest public health epidemic in 70 years. The Corona virus has officially claimed over 2,700 lives and infected over 78,000 people in China. As it progresses, we hear more and grow more concerned about its impact on the world.

  "DO IT! This home is such an amazing place to visit." College Junior Alice Mockenhaupt volunteered at Alenah’s Home, our CHI Foster Care Center in Beijing, just this Spring. In addition to her service to the kids at Alenah’s, Alice was kind enough to give an interview sharing her experience with others who might consider a similar visit.  Here’s what Alice had to say: CHI:  What was the purpose of your visit to Alenah's Home?

2018 Summer volunteer group #1, May 30th, 2018. Medical student Lauren McCroskie and her family volunteered for two weeks.. Every year, a growing number of our grown-up sons and daughters visit Alenah's Home, our Children's Hope foster care center in Beijing.  Some come with their families, some with a group of friends and some come on their own. Many of our adopted kids stop in for a few hours on their way to visit other places. Others stay for a few days, or weeks, or even months. They all get a feel for their own early life

Just like Ava, the cakes are very much appreciated in her community.  On a recent family
