Over the weekend CCAI co-founders Joshua Zhong and Lily Nie were able to join more than 300 members of the CCAI family for the 2015 CCAI Midwest Reunion in Dublin, OH! These parents, children and other family and friends came from across 15 different states to celebrate the incredible gift of adoption, and the important impact being a family has had on all of us.
The reunion had fun planned for all ages, and thanks to the wonderful team of volunteers, led by the incomparable Georgette Poeppelmeier, the day was a huge success! There were great family games, that awesome jumping castle, face painting, funny balloon animals, delicious food and ice cream, and so many more great activities for the families to participate in.
Josh and Lily were beyond thrilled to be able to join the families and see how well all the children have grown up over the years, some having “Gotcha Days” dating back as far as 1995 while others were just a few weeks ago. Josh and Lily were so happy they were also able to say thank you to each and every parent for giving their children the loving homes they always deserved and for their continuing support for CCAI and orphaned children around the world.
