JOURNEY FOR ORPHANED YOUTH
Our mission for JOY is to advocate for China’s waiting children by creating this “reverse” hosting experience for individuals and families. Instead of the children traveling to the US, we are recruiting US families to travel to China, meet our JOY kids and have fun getting to know them! Our families who participate will document their time spent with the children and help find them their forever families by advocating for them via social media during and after the trip. This group of 20 children are often over-looked on photo listings because their needs and/or age seem too scary. Due to the lack of resources in China orphanages, the kid’s files are rarely updated. JOY is an opportunity for adoptive families and perspective adoptive families to see our kid’s current conditions and personalities.
