Who we are.

FCC-San Diego is a network of families who have adopted, are waiting to adopt, or are considering adopting a child from China.

FCC-SD is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, and educational purposes, more specifically:

  • To provide educational, cultural, and informational resources, activities, and services to families who have adopted from China or considering adoption from China.
  • To promote an awareness and appreciation of Chinese culture in our children, strengthening their ties to their Chinese heritage.
  • To advocate for and support children remaining in orphanages in China.

History of our Chapter

The San Diego Chapter of the Families with Children from China was founded in 1996 by Pam Whitfield. The first official FCC-SD get-together took place in May 1997, and over 100 people attended the event, held in the Whitfield's home. We now have an active organization of local families. Pam Whitfield also served as president of our chapter for three years and has organized many of our events, newsletters, and flyers. Thank you Pam!
