Spring 2014 Adoptees Giving Back Orphanage Service Trip

Adopteen‘s Spring 2014 Adoptees Giving Back Orphanage Service Trip came to an end last night as all 16 travelers flew home on that oh-so-fun 14+ hour flight, back to five different states. The trip was a HUGE success and, needless to say, the entire group grew extremely close in the 10 days they spent in China. It was definitely hard to say goodbye…

Although it was a smaller group, the 16 travelers altogether raised a incredible grand total of more than $3500 for the Nanchang Orphanage and were able to help purchase some much-needed supplies for the orphanage!  Everything from cribs to air conditioning units to food processors to DVD players… Nanchang Orphanage was thrilled!

The Spring 2014 AGBOST was such an incredible, beautiful, brave, and inspiring group of ladies (no gents this time). Nanchang Orphanage was just as wonderful and the nannies and children were all so fun — a few of the nannies even cooked for several of the travelers and challenged them to a game of badminton! 😀

The group had the opportunity to work with children as young as 2 months up to 18 years. Words cannot even come close to explaining how life-changing this trip was for all of the travelers. Thank you to everyone who donated to this life-changing trip and supported the travelers on their journey!

The group was lead by Adopteen Director, Amy Zhong, and adoption therapist, Eli Harwood.  Thank you to CCAI President, Joshua Zhong, the wonderful guides, Amber, Sissi, and Evelyn, and all of the wonderful Nanchang Orphanage nannies and teachers for their mentorship and guidance!
