2015 Hong Kong Adoptees Reunion – Journey Home
Week of November 8, 2015 in Hong Kong
We invite adult adoptees from Hong Kong orphanages to attend our next reunion, which will be held the week of November 8, 2015 in Hong Kong. This is a special opportunity to meet other Hong Kong adoptees like yourself – to share adoption experiences, develop friendships and be part of our network.
Come join your fellow HK Adoptees in discussion group meetings, special arranged visits to Hong Kong orphanages, as well as sightseeing, free time and lots of eating! Friends and family are welcome to attend too.
Explore your pre-adoption and HK cultural history in a fun, informal and spontaneous way. This is also an opportunity for you to look for your Hong Kong records, birth family and relatives.
See what fun we had at our first Hong Kong Adoptee Reunion held in 2010.

This will be the first gather for the USA Hong Kong Adoptees Network. As it is the first USA HKAN meet this will be a casual picnic. As the initially two co-founders of the USA group are from NYC, they felt it would be good to keep it simple to start with. It is hoped in the future that it will grow and be held in different places each time.
Please contant Kimberlee Mar to register your intrest, have questions or what to be kept informed about this or future events details on the Contact page.
