Chinese Calligraphy Workshops during Xinran’s one-to-one session with each adoptive parent. Look…how focused those children were! In the end, MBL gave away each Chinese adoptee 15 sets in total of this so-called Magic Chinese Calligraphy Mat (which were sponsored by MBL volunteers ZHU Li and PAN ZhiGang in Nanjing, China) and calligraphy brushes. Meanwhile, we offered more than 50 copies of MBL Children’s Magazines to children as our support to them and also to their school library collection…
Meanwhile, Xinran was doing this one-to-one consultation session with each adoptive family, which involved lots of family experience sharing and adoption documents checking. The consultation session started from Saturday afternoon until almost 24pm in the evening, and again from 8am on Sunday morning to 10am just before we were going to travel back to Oslo…last almost 12 hours in total, since many families came back for extra sessions with more questions that would like to discuss with Xinran.
The whole weekend passed so fast and after spending times with adoptive families especially those teenager adoptees, we all felt that in Norway those Chinese children are eager and in huge needs to have Chinese culture connection and support. MBL and Kinaforeningen are really considering of working together on a well-structured plan for the more collaboration in the future, regarding to:
— Inviting Xinran/ MBL workshop leaders to Norway to offer speech/consultation, family adoption documents checking, and Chinese culture workshops, and also giving trainings to local volunteers
— Supporting /organizing Events/Activities for Norwegian adoptive families in different local areas
— Supporting adoptive families with Chinese culture materials, such as Chinese books, traditional Chinese dresses, and Chinese instruments…etc.
Hope together with Kinaforeningen, we could help and support more Chinese adoptees, adoptive families, and people who are interested in China and Chinese culture…in Norway!
