One of the things we’re most excited about here at GWCA is the increasing opportunities for adoptees to travel on a heritage or homeland tour. Due to the generosity of the Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs and the CCCWA, families are more able to travel on the trip of a lifetime because of grants subsidizing the intra-China travel for any adoptee(s). This means your kiddo travels partially free!
An example of a great opportunity like this is the Yunnan Heritage Tour. This tour is a truly special opportunity for your adoptee to visit their homeland, in particular Yunnan province.
We are partnering with CCCWA as well as the provincial Civil Affairs to offer an amazing ten-day tour specifically designed for families that have adopted from Yunnan province. You will be visiting Beijing and walking the Great Wall, the incredible and powerfully beautiful Stone Forest in Yunnan, visiting Kunming Child Welfare Institution, as well as engaging in some one in a lifetime opportunities for hands-on experience with Chinese culture.
You don’t have to be a GWCA family to be a part of this tour, and additional family members are also welcome. Please feel free to invite your fellow adoptive families!

China | 3 years old | Girl
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
