Face 2 Face Journey

Being a part of helping children find their forever family just may be the best, most meaningful trip you have ever taken!

Where: Guangzhou, China

When: April 4th-11th

Details:  We will be providing a “camp” for children from 2 different local orphanages. We will spend 3 days with approximately 30 children of various ages from these orphanages. We are planning on taking them to a zoo, a park, and will have various activities planned. Loving on these children and getting to know them will be the best and most important part of this trip! We will also spend several days touring this part of China prior to spending time with the children. We will be staying in 2 different beautiful hotels in China along with being able to experience the culture of the country.

The goal:  The purpose of this trip is for families or individuals to travel to China to love on and provide a great experience for precious kids that need forever families. In getting to know these children we will be able to advocate for them with pictures, information and stories about our time together in hopes that they will be adopted. We also hope that this will provide a meaningful trip to those traveling. We pray that our travelers will be a blessing to the children attending the camp. We know being with the children will bless us!

Who can go: Our trip is open to families or individuals 18 years and older. Children/adolescents may attend if accompanied by a parent.

Are we able to adopt a child that we meet: All these children will be available for adoption. If a family meets China’s eligibility, then adoption can certainly be a consideration.

What is the cost of the trip: Just your travel cost is what is required to participate.

Plane ticket: Round trip to Guangzhou (price varies depending on your location and choice of airline and route).
