China Adoption: Naomi's GOTCHA DAY and Adoption Story

  • Published on Oct 9, 2018
  • We traveled with our three boys and my mom to China to adopt our 2 year old daughter, Naomi who was born with Spina Bifida - Meningocele. She had a surgery when she was two months old and is doing really well. We adopted through CCAI and highly recommend them! We entered the adoption process in November of 2016, received her file in September 2017 and traveled in August 2018 to finally bring her home. We first traveled to Beijing to see the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, etc. We then traveled to Zhengzhou in the Henan Province to receive Naomi and then on to Guangzhou to complete the visa and immigration paperwork. We tried to include as many moments of our 18 day trip as we possibly could as well as a glimpse into how life has been since returning home. This has been a beautiful and, at times, trying journey but the joy in our lives because of this little girl can't be replaced. We love you Naomi!

    I am so happy for her. Not all the those children meet such a beautiful family to adopt them. I am sure she will have a better life in the United States with her new family.

    Why's every one going to China to adopt little kids when we got literally millions of children in foster care here in America and most of whom are black kids who need your help more than these Chinese yal will bring in spy's that will end is for no reason.

      @Leah Zhou this country has so many children in foster care so many but why do they have to travel half way across the world for an Asian baby who will never be an athletic person let alone fon nothing for this country Asian do nothing except math and math and math while black white and Latinos are doing everything

      @Leah Zhou nah when they start selling country secrets to China soon hope you feel the same way about em

      Amanda Lauren this was purely disrespectful and racist, these children in foster cares are all just children, nothing more, it doesn’t matter what race and what country they’re are from. It was also the family’s decision and no one has a say in this other than the family members themselves. Please respect their choice.

    I know she had a wonderful family that loves and takes care of her now but it was so heartbreaking seeing her reaction when the foster mom or Ayi or whoever that was handed her to her adoptive mom.

    A panda rocking horse.....sigh of course racial stereotypes are ever present. They have horses in China too

    • Anbre Lewis

      Hope Adams Please don’t bring your negativity into this space. We’re fully aware there are horses in China. We didn’t want a rocking “horse”. Her nanny told us pandas were her favorite so that’s why we got it. We are quite conscious of racial stereotypes, but we also try to bring awareness to them without being smug or haughty. Condescending comments won’t ever do you or the receiver any good.

    me what bothers... it's the fact that future parents make a selection the future baby, they will actually want to choose the child he find the most beautiful, it's very sad
