There are friends, there is family, and then there are friends that become family.
In 1980, the Chinese government implemented the One Child Policy to control the growing size of the People’s Republic of China. This policy ultimately curbed the rapid population growth, but it split many families apart. Thousands of newborns, most of whom girls, were abandoned and put up for adoption. While these adoptees have found their forever families, many have had limited opportunities to connect with other Chinese adoptees.
Sisters of China is a community organization dedicated to uniting female-identifying Chinese adoptees of all ages across the world by providing them a safe space to share their stories, discuss their challenges, and celebrate their heritage.
**Disclaimer: Sisters of China is not a support group. In other words, the Sisters of China Core Team is NOT trained or licensed in therapy. As a community organization, we are focused on forming connections between members, NOT providing therapeutic services to members.
How It Works
The three main ways to get involved with Sisters of China are through the virtual meetings, private Facebook group, and the Discord server.
Sisters of China hosts two different types of meetings a month. In these meetings, members will have the opportunity to discuss both adoption-related topics and non-adoption-related topics.
The private Facebook group is open to non-members and members. The group allows adoptees to get to know one another through the discussion of identity and adoption-related topics.
The Discord server is open to only members. Discord gives members another way to meet and interact with other members.
Joining is simple and quick. All you have to do is complete the Sisters of China Membership Application below. There is no fee to become a member and the form takes about two minutes to complete.
