Thanks to the design and leadership of CCI Member Emily Chan, China’s Children International is excited to announce a new project called “Humans of China’s Children International (HCCI).” “Humans of China’s Children International” (HCCI) is a public Facebook page inspired by the popular  “Humans of New York” (HONY) Project and created to feature the diverse stories of Chinese adoptees from around the world.

This project will focus on Chinese adoptees from all over the world; their stories, their interests, their lives, and above all their uniqueness. Every adoptee has something special about them and it is through this project that their individuality (aside from adoption itself) can be shared globally. By participating in this project, each adoptee will be interviewed on a one-on-one basis about something ranging from simple and fun to something deep and meaningful. (i.e. What is your favorite childhood memory? What does family mean to you? What is your story?) Each adoptee will then submit a picture of him/herself, his/her family or something that represents who he/she is as a person. This project is supposed to be a fun way to represent our adoptee community!

GET INVOLVED

  1. Follow our HCCI page! Individual profiles will be posted regularly on our  public HCCI FB page, which can be found here. When express permission is given, certain profiles may also be featured on the official CCI website. Please check back often to hear about what our diverse membership is up to.

  2. Sign up to be featured!

    1. Please fill in the following application form here. Once you have submitted your application, we will email you shortly afterwards. Keep in mind that this project can be as personal or impersonal as you want, whether it is during the interview or submitting a picture.

    2. To be featured, you must fill out the waiver form listed in the application form. If you are under 18, you must have your parent or legal guardian fill the form out for you.

  3. Write a Feature! Features will be written mostly by the CCI HCCI team. If you are a Chinese adoptee and would really like to contribute a post yourself, however, please email us!

Emily Chan: Special Projects Coordinator Hi everyone! My name is Emily Chan. I am so excited for this new and upcoming project "Humans of CCI!" I was adopted from Anhui Province, China at the age of two and am now living in Oregon, USA with my amazing parents. I am 19 years old and a Freshman at the University of Oregon. My favorite thing about being an adoptee is the fact that I have a unique story just like every single adoptee out there. That's why I wanted to start this project so that adoptees can get to know other adoptees on a more personal and fun level. I hope you all enjoy and share this project as it unfolds!
