History of the USA group

The Americas (Canada and USA) adoptee events have been organized by KimR and Mei Yan starting back in 2010.  We tend to hold one to two events on the West Coast each year.  We also have been central organizers for the two Hong Kong reunions.  The East Coast events are held every other year with Amanda being the central contact for that event.

We have several adoptee websites, such as fanlingbabies.com, where you can learn about Hong Kong orphanage history.  This was the first Hong Kong Adoptee website and was instrumental in helping us find Hong Kong adoptees all over the world.  We are grateful to Debbie and Jesse for adding this USA branch off the original UK Hong Kong Adoptees Network.
