2015 Private Heritage to China (Wuxi Orphanage)

Travel Date: Jul 23rd, 2015

Sharon and Jon had a big family with three daughters and one son. In 1999, they took a new member Janice from China to join them. Now Janice is 16 years old, the family planed a heritage tour in China for 15 days including Shanghai, Suzhou, Wuxi, Nanjing, Xi’an and Beijing. For the first time Janice had deeper understanding about her country and the history.





They arrived at Wuxi SWI early in the morning and the director in the orphanage welcomed them warmly. Then they took a photo together at the gate of the orphanage.




The director took them to visit the facilities and every floor of the orphanage. The family played with the children in the orphanage and sent gifts to them.




Then the family had a meeting with the staff in the orphanage and met the nurse who knew the details about Janice's adoption. They showed the family the old photos of Janice and the physical examination report at that time. The nurse offered them some information about Janice like the small note in the swaddle and they took photos for memory.




Then the director invited them to have lunch in the orphanage and they communicate with each other happily. In the afternoon, the director took the family to visit the old orphanage. After that they went to the police station where the child was picked up and took a photo for memory.



The family had a wonderful time in this trip and Janice has got much more information about her country. She knew that people in her homeland didn’t forget her although her parents abandoned her for some reasons and this brought great consolation and felicity to Janice.
