Great Wall China Adoption Blog: November 28, 2012

Hello GWCA Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I know I ate way too much, but I did enjoy spending time with my family. Did anyone have new additions or traditions this year?

GWCA has some new additions that we are truly excited to share.  Every month, we have new webinars for families researching adoption and for those families currently in process!  Everyone can benefit from attending and learning just a little more about China adoption.  GWCA has an agency webinar at the beginning of each month, and we will also have webinars on topics like: What is Hague, Adoption Myths and FAQs, Financial Assistance for Adoptions.  We hope to inform and educate families as much
as possible throughout their adoption journey!

Have you attended a webinar?  What are you waiting for?  View our webinar schedule here.

Also, learn how to connect with GWCA through Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest right now! There are always exciting posts, updates, and families to interact with!

Sincerely,

Lizzie Kovach

Great Wall China Adoption Blog: November 21, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving!

There is so much to be thankful for, especially in the world of adoption!!  Many of our families are beginning to sign up for Legacy Journey, which allows families to take their child back to China and tour their homeland…possibly even visit their orphanage!  I know this will be such a memorable experience for them.  What memories and traditions are you making with your kiddos?  If you want information about Legacy Journey you can learn more here.

I also wanted to share that Great Wall China Adoption has started a page on Pinterest!  To view our Pinterest page and see all things trending in the adoption world (even ideas for Thanksgiving crafts), you can follow us here!

Great Wall China Adoption Blog: November 14, 2012

Hello GWCA Families,

It is definitely beginning to feel like Fall here in Texas, and I am extremely excited for Thanksgiving next week!  I’m sure you are all looking forward to having the kiddos home for a few days. Have you started to prepare your Thanksgiving menu?

Many families inquiring about adoption ask me what they can do to make the transition easier.  I think Thanksgiving is a great time to incorporate your child’s Chinese culture with their American culture!  Make it a tradition to serve a few Chinese dishes with your standard turkey and stuffing!   Need a few ideas?  Share them on our Facebook page here!

Sincerely,

From the Desk of Lizzie: November 7, 2012

Happy Adoption Month!

November is Adoption Month. There are so many exciting things for our families to be thankful for and continue learning. I’d love to share a few Adoption Month events and ideas with you all:

1) Adoption Day is November 17th, and there are events all over the country to celebrate. You can find an event in your area right here!

2) Do you have a Family Tree with GWCA or CAN? Family Tree is a wonderful way to keep your family and friends informed of your adoption journey…especially during Adoption Month! GWCA and CAN families can start their own Family Tree blog here.

3) I think there are some amazing adoption stories and inspirational quotes. Do you have any adoption stories or special quotes to share? Check out our Facebook page and continue sharing all month!

Sincerely,
