The Red Sea: "China's Children International" by China's Children International

Summary

CCI is a network that aims to strengthen the relationship between adoptees and their heritage. Working to unite adoptees from across the globe, we want our members to find a haven within our network as they meet new people. As adoptees mature into adulthood, CCI is empowering Chinese adoptees to be proud of their heritage as well as be individuals who share the common beginning of being adopted from China.

Bio

China’s Children International, “CCI” is an organization run by adoptees for adoptees. The mission of CCI is to unite Chinese adoptees from all over the world in addition to providing an extensive network of support for all of us who share this common beginning. CCI promotes open discussions among its members and encourages members to share experiences with other adoptees. CCI is working to provide the opportunity for adoptees to give back to orphanages in China. If CCI were to win the grant competition we would use the money to help continue our mission of uniting Chinese adoptees world wide. The money would go towards programs that we have initiated such as our T-shirt fundraiser for Half the Sky, maintaining our website rights, and any future activities we create that promote helping Chinese orphanages and adoptees. For instance if we won the grant money, 100% of the profits from t-shirt sales would go to Half the Sky instead of a portion of the profits that are currently being used to cover the initial cost of shirts and shipping. This money would also be used as a foundation for CCI becoming a not-for-profit organization as we aspire to become a 501 c3 in the future.

In 2004 I happened upon a snippet of an article which spoke of ekthesis, the word for infant exposure in Greek antiquity. I was dumbfounded to learn that girls were still being left in the elements to die, just because they were female. Today we use the term gendercide.

 

Having learned of the modern practice, my rage looked for a place to turn. The release came through my writing craft. What if I could create a fictional story illustrating a society practicing gendercide? What if that story could raise awareness and sympathy, and ultimately action against the atrocity?...
