HCCI: Language of Adoption
Hey there! Hallo! Hola! Salut! Ciao! Olá! Hej! Cześć! Ahoj! 你好！こんにちは。Приве́т.
Humans of CCI is launching a new photo feature - Humans of CCI: Language of Adoption!
The ‘Language of Adoption’ feature aims to shine a light on the international adoptee community and our varied experiences of adoption. We welcome submissions from Chinese adoptees from all over the world to share a word (or phrase) - in your native language or English - that describes an aspect of your experiences of being adopted.
As one of the CCI Summer 2019 Interns (and a languages graduate!), I want to raise awareness of how diverse and international our amazing community is. Especially those adoptees outside of the English-speaking world.
You can choose any word that you feel is relevant to your experience of adoption, your relationship with your birth country (China) and so on; which you can then explain the meaning in English (if applicable) and share why you chose this word. And you can upload a photo to be published on the HCCI Facebook page that you feel showcases your word!
If you are interested in sharing your experience (word and photo!), we would love to hear from you!
Read the How To Guide HERE before complete the submission form.
Please note: there is currently NO deadline for submissions. Everyone who submits will be profiled sooner or later; however, based on level of interest, we may stagger interviews / profiles such that some members are profiled before others.
