Travel Date: Jul 01st, 2019

On July 1, Baoding No. 1 Children Welfare Institute welcomed a special "family", Dang Nanhua, who had spent 2 years here during her early lives. This time, the girl returned to the birthplace to find her roots in the accompany of her family.

Fourteen years ago, Dang Nanhua was abandoned in Baoding Hospital for some reason. After many searches, it was still unclaimed. Later, Dang Nanhua was accepted and raised by Baoding orphanage.In 2007, Nanhua's life ushered in a new turning point. The couple of Hollis in the United States adopted her. Nowadays, under the careful care of the adoptive parents, the girl has grown up healthily and has received a good education. In order to let Dang Nanhua know more about Chinese culture, the HOLLIS family celebrates each traditional festival together.

Time flies. Fourteen years have passed. As early as last March, Susan, the mother, began planning this trip to China. The date of departure is getting closer and closer, and Nanhua's expectation for her homeland is increasing.

On the day of the return visit, Nanhua wore her favorite skirt, brought some gifts and returned to Baoding No.1 CWI accompanied by her family. There, the adoptive family received a warm reception. They visited the orphanage, checked the files, played games with the children, and received some paintings which are drawn by the children in the orphanage.
After lunch, the adoptive family visited Baoding Hospital, the finding site, and found the relevant personnel to recall the scene at that time. Before leaving Baoding, Susan also wanted to buy a cheongsam for her Nanhua as a souvenir. Next, they would traveled to Hangzhou and other places.
