A Heartwarming Return Trip to Guiping SWI, Fostering Bonds and Cherishing Memories

Travel Date: Jun 24th, 2023

Guiping Social Welfare Institute (SWI) in Guiping City, China, recently witnessed a heartwarming reunion as an adoptive family from the United States returned to the place where their journey together began. On June 24, 2023, a family of three from the United States embarked on a special visit to Guiping SWI, rekindling their connection with the institution and expressing their gratitude for the life-changing adoption process.

The orphanage visit, however, was not without its challenges. Guiping SWI is located in an area under special COVID-19 control measures, and the timing coincided with the Dragon Boat Festival holiday. Initially, the family had been informed that they could only have an external view of the SWI. In order to ensure that the family's visit was meaningful and fulfilling, LEADTOCHINA facilitated multiple communications and coordination with the SWI. Finally, a few days before the scheduled visit, it was confirmed that they would be granted permission to enter the premises, bringing great joy to the family.

The family commenced their journey by taking an early morning train from Nanning to Guiping. Upon their arrival at Guiping SWI, they underwent necessary health screenings at the entrance, including antigen testing, in compliance with the established protocols. The SWI staff warmly welcomed the family, appreciating their commitment to maintaining a connection with the institution and the child they had adopted.

During their visit, the family had the opportunity to review the adoption records and documentation from the time of their child's adoption. The SWI staff, led by Director Wen, facilitated this process, ensuring that the family had access to the pertinent information and supporting materials. Director Wen expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the family's visit and presented a token of gratitude—a traditional Chinese knot—to their child, symbolizing the enduring bond between the family and Guiping SWI.

After bidding farewell to the social welfare home, they visited a nearby market and bought local souvenirs as a souvenir of their visit. In addition, they went on a memorable excursion to the picturesque Xishan scenic area to further immerse themselves in the beauty of the region.

When the family returns home to the United States, the memories of their China heritage tour and the connections they made during their time at the Guiping Social Welfare Institute will forever hold a special place in their hearts.
