About FCC

We are a vibrant community of families united by the experience of adopting children from China.  We honor our children’s heritage, celebrate the diversity of our families, and advocate for their acceptance and respect.

Through events, publications, online resources and community activities we encourage adoption by providing information and sharing our experiences.  We help families learn about China and Chinese culture to strengthen our children’s pride in their background and heritage.

We sponsor programs that support the evolving needs of our families and assist our children as they grow to understand their life stories.

We promote awareness of our community’s concerns to schools, governmental bodies, cultural institutions, Asian American organizations, adoption agencies, and other groups.  We support Chinese Adoption charitable organizations and causes.
