Last week, WACAP staff members travelled to Shenzhen, China. President and CEO Lillian Thogersen, China Development Director Bixin Huang, and Homestudy Processing Manager Meg Alley visited three orphanages and met 43 children who are part of the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption’s (CCCWA) Journey of Hope program. We spent a little face-to-face time with each child, getting to know the children’s backgrounds, interests and needs so that we can more successfully find them families. While each of these 43 children had something special to offer, they all have one thing in common:  the need for a loving, permanent family. WACAP is honored to do this work on behalf of children.

These children.

    We adopted our daughter through the Journey of Hope program last summer(2013). Her picture is posted on the slideshow above and I just marvel at the difference in her in just the past 8 months in comparison to that picture. Adoption is amazing and has changed ME in so many positive ways. We hope to start the process to adopt again through WACAP again in the near future!
