Families with Children from China New England


Families with Children from China New England (FCCNE) is a completely volunteer-run non-profit organization connecting and supporting adoptees from China of all ages and their families. Based in Greater Boston, we include over 1,000 families throughout New England as well as adult adoptees, many who are new to the area or here for study or work. 

JOIN US... everyone is welcome to join our programs!


  • Celebrations - Each year we celebrate Lunar New Year, and for 6 years we have celebrated with the Pao Arts Center and Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center on the day of the Lion Dances in Boston's Chinatown! We share and promote other celebrations throughout New England, such as August Moon Festivals, Dragonboat Races, and more.
  • Adoptee Planned Events for Adoptees - We collaborated with the adoptee led organization CCI (China's Children International) to plan workshops, events, and adoptee meet ups in the Boston area. (Due to Covid-19, CCI suspended in person activities.)
  • Publications - For years we partnered with FCC Greater New York (now known as Chinese Adoptee Alliance) and FCC Northern California to publish VIEW, an annual print magazine featuring the creative work and voices of FCC adoptees. Until 2008 we published the print journal The China Connection. We continue to explore new possibilities for publication partnerships.
  • Educational Events and Cosponsored Programs - We plan and partner with other organizations on programs such as discussions with adult adoptees, film screenings, and workshops that delve into areas of concern to our community such as returning to China, birth family searches, and special needs. We partner with other organizations to offer access to festivals, events, and programs.
  • Email Postcard - We send email newsletters with information on, and links to, a events, articles, and resources related to adoption, China and Chinese American culture, and connections with Asian American and adoptive communities.
  • Facebook Page — With regular posts, the FCCNE Facebook page is a great way to stay connected and exchange perspectives on issues of importance to our community with others around the world such as identity, race, finding birth families, adoptee voices and the Asian American experience.
  • Advocacy — We share information about issues of concern to our community - such as ensuring citizenship for all international adoptees or affordable housing in Chinatown - regularly through our Facebook page and email newsletters.
