Merry Christmas from all of us at CCAI!
The 2013 year brought with it MANY firsts for CCAI. With our 21st Anniversary, we proudly coordinated our first-ever (and second-ever) Waiting Child Medical Needs Conference, our first-ever Adoptees Giving Back Orphanage Service Trip, and our first-ever Orphan Care Fundraising Gala. We sponsored China’s first-ever Baby Safe Haven Conference and spearheaded the initiative. We opened our incredible Post-Adoption Center and introduced new parent-tot therapy classes, hosted Adopteen’s largest Camp-Conference to date, coordinated three successful Heritage Tours, hosted an adoptee-led panel, re-introduced the CCAI Adoptive Parents Council, and raised more than $430,000 for our Children Charity Fund! Our Co-Founder and CEO, Lily Nie, was awarded the 2013 PBS Be More Award. We introduced our Older Orpan Hosting program. We came together as a family to help support our dear friend, Maggie, and Baby Hope. We opened our newest branch office in Kentucky. We reached an amazing 100 Haiti adoptions…!
The list goes on and on! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for the endless, undying support and love you send our way every day of every year. We are forever grateful and humbled and happy. Very, truly happy.
Happy Holidays, friends!
