So you want to adopt a child from Taiwan?

At this year’s reunion, Taiwan R.O.C.ks invited a Taiwanese Aboriginal dance troupe and a lion dance group to perform before the 35 families who attended. The children also learned to make lanterns, while parents held a silent auction and raised US$1,700 (NT$ 51,000) for an orphanage in Taiwan, Rockaway said.

“What I want everyone to come away with is what a positive experience this really is,” Rockaway added. “We are so committed to making sure that our children grow up really proud of where they are from.”
