FCC Chapters and Local Contacts

 

 

Families with Children from China is a network of parent support groups in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. While some of the chapters listed below are formally organized organizations with by-laws and boards of directors, others are less structured groups of families who support one another with a variety of activities.

Virtually all FCC chapters share the following three goals: To support families who've adopted in China through post-adoption and Chinese culture programs; To encourage adoption from China and support waiting families; To advocate for and support children remaining in orphanages in China. FCC chapters generally organize some or all of the following activities: newsletters, membership directories, family picnics and pot-luck suppers, celebrations of Chinese festivals and holidays, pre-adoption information meetings, playgroups, Chinese language and culture classes for children, parent speakers.

Becoming a member of FCC

There is not a "National" FCC group.  To join you must first find your local chapter.  If there is not a chapter that covers your area you can form one by reading the next section.  Once you've found your local chapter then you can use the contact information listed to get further instructions on how to join.

Forming a new FCC Chapter

If your state or region does not have a chapter of FCC, we encourage formation of local chapters of Families with Children from China and look forward to a day when the United States is dotted with FCCs. Our guidelines are few:

  • That FCC chapters be open to all families who've adopted children of Chinese origin, regardless of route of adoption, religion or marital status of the family, or country of origin of the child (FCC has members whose Chinese children have come from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and even the USA in addition to the People's Republic of China).
  • That FCC chapters be non-profit, volunteer, parent support organizations:
  • That FCC chapters be independent of individual adoption agencies or facilitators.

As long as your chapter conforms to these guidelines, you are allowed to consider yourself a chapter of FCC.

To list a new FCC chapter, update an existing chapter, or report an error in an existing listing, please fill out the FCC New/Updated Chapter Form.  If you need further assistance, contact the webmaster. Please note that with over 100 chapters and subchapters, we will not be able to post dates etc for specific events.

FCC-Indianapolis

Families with Children from China-Indiana (FCC-IN) is a non-profit, non-denominational, volunteer organization whose membership is dedicated to promoting both the well-being of children adopted from China, as well as those children who remain in orphanages in China. Anyone with an interest in Chinese adoption, whether adoptive families or family members, waiting families or community members who support our mission, are welcome to join. While we strive to serve all of Indiana, a majority of our activities currently focus on Central Indiana.

FCC-IN volunteers create cultural, educational and social programs designed to preserve our children's cultural heritage, provide insight into adoption issues and cultural mores, and enrich the lives of our member families. We support one another through the joys and challenges of adoption and child rearing. And, we advocate for respect and acceptance of our children and their Chinese heritage.

By providing our children with the benefit of growing up with friends who share their background and adoption experience, we hope to help them create lifelong friendships, which are forged among peers who understand the complexities of adoption, multi-racial families and creating personal identity.

By partnering with the local Chinese community, we endeavor to cultivate and strengthen our children's connection to their heritage and ethnic background by sharing celebrations and providing cultural awareness through interaction and education.

As such, our membership is very dynamic and changes annually depending on who is living here at any point in time.
