WACAP Adoption Program Manager Mei-Na Tien recently traveled to Taiwan, her home, where she celebrates the Lunar New Year with her family and friends each year.
During her visit, Mei-Na also arranged to spend a day with a Taiwanese agency that asked to learn more about foster care and adoption in the U.S. Throughout the day, she listened and answered questions the agency had about the first steps, the homestudy, and support after the adoption.
As she detailed the process for the agency staff, she thought of her family at home. She knew they would be waiting for her when the day was done.
With the warm faces of her family in mind, her thoughts turned toward the children in Taiwan who had no one waiting – many of them toddlers – and the need for committed families for these little ones.
