Welcome to the Hong Kong Adoptees Network (HKAN).
HKAN is a community run network of HK adoptees made up of international adoptees groups. The aim of HKAN is to build connections with adoptees locally and meet for events, gatherings & reunions while also having cross pollination and close ties between the international HKAN groups as well as other HK adoptee communities.
HKAN was originally set up for HK adoptees that had been adopted by UK families. The group started very small, simply as a group of adoptees that met up casually for lunch in 2010. UK HKAN has quickly grown beyond expectation. The 2012 April UK HKAN reunion had over 40 UK HK adoptees attended.
With the success of the UK group, there is now the start of the USA HKAN group. They began their first meeting in the fall of 2011. If you are interested in setting up a HKAN group in your country or area or just looking to connect with other HK adoptees please do not hesitate to contact us.
The HKAN site is also growing as more information & stories are added. It’s well worth checking out the blogs of each HKAN group & Members only areas. If you would like to add something to the site do let us know.
The website has had some major updates:
– We are happy to announce that we now have a members only area. Find out more on the Become a Member page.
– We also have made it easier to navigate posts and also added a “Post Archive List” page in each Group site (in the right side bar) to make it easier to view old posts. UK Post Archive List – USA Post Archive List.
The Next UK reunion is being planned for Spring 2014 in London (subject to change). Keep an eye out for further details.
