Families with Children from China New England


Founded in 1995, Families with Children from China New England is a non-profit completely volunteer-run group connecting and supporting adoptees from China of all ages and their families. Based in Greater Boston, we have over 1,000 member families throughout New England. Our membership includes waiting families, those recently returned from China, families with teenagers and college students, and adult adoptees.

JOIN US... everyone is welcome to join our programs!


  • Celebrations - Each year we celebrate Lunar New Year, and for the past 4 years we have celebrated with the Pao Arts Center and Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center on the day of the Lion Dances in Chinatown! We share and promote other celebrations throughout New England, such as August Moon Festivals, Dragonboat Races, and more.
  • Adoptee Planned Events for Adoptees - We collaborate with the adoptee led organization CCI (China's Children International) to plan workshops, events, and adoptee meet ups in the Boston area.
  • Publications - We have partnered with FCC Greater New York and FCC Northern California to publish VIEW, an annual magazine featuring the creative work and voices of FCC adoptees. For many years we published a journal The China Connection.
  • Educational Events and Cosponsored Programs - We plan programs such as discussions with adult adoptees, film screenings, and workshops that delve into areas of concern to our community such as returning to China, birth family searches, and special needs. We partner with other organizations to offer access to festivals, events, and programs.
  • Email Postcard - We send a regular email newsletter with information on, and links to, a broad array of events and resources related to adoption, China and Chinese American culture and connections to Asian American and adoptive communities.
  • Facebook Page — With daily posts, the FCCNE Facebook page is a great way to stay connected and exchange perspectives on issues of importance to our community with others around the world such as identity, race, finding birth families, adoptee voices and the Asian American experience.
  • Advocacy — We share information about issues of concern to our community - such as ensuring citizenship for all international adoptees or affordable housing in Chinatown - regularly through our Facebook page and email newsletters.
