That time I got adopted in China – Eliza

Hello, my name is Eliza (陈枫诺), and I want to talk about my story of being adopted in an already huge family in China. My best friend who’s Chinese American was visiting his family during the Chinese Spring Festival and since I had nowhere to go, he invited me over to his grandparents’ house in Quangang, near Quanzhou.

Our Time in China: Studying and Travelling – Adelina

大家好! My name is Adelina (安玥怡) and I spent last year studying in Hangzhou, China.
