14 Days Heritage Tours to China & XiuShan Orphanage

Travel Date: Jun 15th, 2017

On June 16th,2008, because of congenital heart disease, four-month-old little girl Xiu Huayou was abandoned at the gate of the Xiushan SWI. Then she was picked up by Guo Zhiping, the doctor of the SWI, and sent to the SWI for growing.



An American love family changed the destiny of Xiu Huayou again in 2009-- Lori and her husband Daniel adopted the girl. Since then, Xiu Huayou returned back to the family life and got her parents' great care and love.



8 years later, the American couple believed it was time to bring Xiu Huayou back to her homeland to visit Chinese beautiful sceneries, experience Chinese culture, return visit the SWI she once stayed and get familiar with the local customs of her birthplace. Therefore, they started a 14-day China heritage tour and traveled around many places in China including Beijing, Xi’an, Chongqing, Xiushan SWI and Shanghai, etc.



As for China Heritage Return Tour, the SWI return visit is the most meaningful part. On June 13th, our guide Michael, who was the same escort Interpreter when the couple first came to Chongqing 8 years ago for adopting their daughter, successfully received the family from the airport.

According to schedule,  June 15th is the big day to return visit the Xiushan SWI. Upon arrival, director Zheng of the SWI along with aunties who looked after Xiu Huayou warmly welcomed the family.  In the SWI, the adoptive family checked the data and record of the little girl, visited the rooms she once lived and got more knowledge of things on Xiu Huayou and other children in the SWI. During their return visit, the family also took out some prepared toys and sweets to share with children here.



After the SWI return visit, the adoptive family also paied a half-day visit in Xiushan.


We believe this China Heritage Return Tour would leave them an unforgetable memory.
