Hannah Stern, Hannah Chapman, Madison Parry, Clara Currie, Rosie Levinson, Kayla Steele and Nell Weaver were all adopted from China at a young age. As luck would have it, all of the girls were adopted by families using the same agency and all within a three-hour radius.
Each girl was born in a China that was adamant about having boys and enforcing a one-child policy. The couples that went to China to adopt them, all happened to go at the same time. The adoptive parents began getting acquainted on the plane. It was on the plane and throughout waiting on the finalization process that they all learned how close they live to each other. And so the friendship of the girls adopted from China began.
Every year one family hosted the seven families for a reunion and chance to catch up. The girls bonded, and though they don’t see each other much outside of the reunions, they know they can count on each other.
The adoptive parents benefited greatly from the friendship. They were able to talk about what was going on with their children, how things were different, and overall bonding from parenting children adopted from an orphanage.
Though time has passed and the girls are grown, their bond remains strong.
