AFHK offers an exciting line up of activities and events open to members and non members. Members receive priority placing and preferential pricing.
All of AFHK's activities are designed to connect, support, and celebrate adoptive families living in Hong Kong and to help educate the greater Hong Kong community about adoption.
Previous Discussions topics
Waiting Families and Families who recently adopted meet each trimester to share their experiences and provide each other with support and understanding.
Newly Adoptive Families meetings are evening events held three times per year. These events aim to address topics of interest for all who are touched by adoption: parents, family members, and professionals, such as social workers, teachers, psychologists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists. Our events have covered such topics as speech therapy, understanding the importance of regulation, and using storybooks in sharing adoption stories.

In November 2013, AFHK initiated a Roundtable Discussion, which was held with representatives invited from the local agencies, SWD, and other adoption support organisations. The objective was to collaboratively discuss recent adoption issues in the global media, including recent reports of re-homing, adoption disruptions, and child abuse in adoptive families in the US. This was a new advocacy endeavour for AFHK, and we are pleased that we had helpful discussion and sharing around these difficult issues, with a commitment by all present to continue to support adoptive families and protect the welfare of vulnerable children.
