Testimonial 7

Lora, Age 17 - China is a spectacular nation. I made many more friends in my tour group than I expected and learned a lot about the culture of my birth country. The guides were very fun to be with, the hotels were nice, and the food was amazing. Before this trip, I spent my whole life associating “China” as simply the name to write on a document when asked where I was born or a faraway place that I could only get a glimpse of in pictures, but now China is an actual, tangible place that I have memories to relate with. The main tour schedule was awesome! I doubt that if my family had traveled to China on our own that our trip would have been as smooth, nor would we have been able to participate in activities anywhere close to the things we were able to do as a tour group. One highlight of the visit was that I was able to visit my orphanage. The director was very welcoming, thoughtful and friendly. I may not think of China as my home country, I am an American, but Asian culture is my heritage and I am proud to say that I was born in China. I highly recommend that other adopted kids take a trip to visit the nation of their origins.
