Wuhan CWI Reunion Tour July 10 – 17; Space Still available - Applications Due March 29, 2013!

The Wuhan Child Welfare Institute (CWI) located in Hubei, China has announced a subsidized Reunion Tour open to all children adopted through their institute.  This unique opportunity for adopted children and their families will take place from July 10 through July 17, 2013 and includes sightseeing and cultural activities in Beijing and Wuhan.  Optional extended tours to Xi’an or Shanghai are also available from July 17 through July 20.

China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs (MCA) is granting, through CCCWA, a subsidy up to $800 in fund support depending on the paid participants in their travelling group toward the in-China Reunion Tour fee for all Wuhan adoptees attending the program 

This opportunity is open to all families with children adopted from Wuhan CWI regardless of agency or facilitator.

Tours for all families will be coordinated through Gladney China Heritage Tours, under the direction of Gongzhan Wu, Vice President and Managing Director of Gladney’s Asia Programs.  In-China arrangements will be made by the Bridge of Love Adoption Service (BLAS) in Beijing. Gladney will assist travelers with gathering the documentation required for in-China travel, the orphanage visit and visa processing. In addition, they will assist families who wish to extend their tour with the Optional Extended tour to Xi’an or Shanghai or plan other in-China travel.

If you have questions about the tour or the application process, please do not hesitate to contact Gongzhan Wu at or Lydia Macci at
