About the First Coast FCC Group

First Coast Families with Children from China (Jacksonville FCC) is a Chinese adoption support group for families in Jacksonville, Orange Park, Fleming Island, St. Augustine, the Beaches, Green Cove Springs, and the surrounding areas who have adopted children from China. We offer information and support before and after adoption, special events, education about Chinese culture, and a community of friendly people. If you have adopted, are considering adopting, are an adoptee, or are a waiting family, please look through our site, then contact us with your information and adoption status. One of our group volunteers will return your inquiry shortly. Thanks for visiting!


We Need You!

Don’t just sit on the sidelines – jump in! We’re appreciative of any level of participation you can offer. Let us know if you’d like to help with family dinners, special events, playgroups, communications, planning, or anything else you’re interested in. See our Volunteers page under About Us, or see the Events page for more details.
