Membership Requirements

You’re Invited: Join Today!

Our membership is open to anyone interested in adopting from China, those in the process of adopting, or those who have adopted from China. We’re also open to families with children from Asia, although our cultural events at this time are exclusively focused on China, per our charter.

What You’ll Get

Membership provides you and your family access to exclusive information on our site, reduced rates at most of our annual events, access to the First Coast FCC roster of families, and helps us cover our administrative expenses for our all-volunteer organization.

Fees / Dues

Annual membership dues for a family of any size for 2014 are $30. We are unable to pro-rate dues for partial membership years, except for transferring members. First Coast FCC is a registered, not-for-profit, 501c-3 organization.


If you are a family who has completed an adoption, has submitted your petition for adoption, or is planning to apply for an adoption from China, you are eligible to join. We do accept memberships from families who have adopted from other Asian countries.
