FCC Chicago & China Cares

We joined our local Families with Children from China chapter and I went to the first monthly Waiting Families meeting today. The topic was China Cares - a new group that is forming at Northwestern University. Their mission is to raise money to fund things like surgeries and foster care for China's orphans. They are also planning to start regular play groups for children adopted from China that will include fun activities that will teach the children about their Chinese heritage. When the children reach 9, they can then move into the mentoring program. It sounds very promising and the students are very enthusiastic. It will provide a great service to adopted Chinese children!
