Families With Children From China-Indiana (FCC-IN) is a chapter of a national network of families who have the privilege of adopting their children from China. We are a voluntary, non-profit organization, independent of any adoption agency, but solely dependent on you - the fortunate parents of our remarkable children - to maintain all of the activities and events detailed on this website. Please volunteer your time and energy. Without volunteer support, we will cease to exist.
You may have heard that FCC is merging with IFACE - The Indiana Families for Adoption Community and Education. There will be more to follow but in the mean time join us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ifacegroup?fref=ts

ICE SKATING WITH FRIENDS - Dec 28 & Jan.2 2016
Come shake off the post-holiday winter blahs with ice skating! The Chinese Girl Scout troops and IFACE (Indiana Families for Adoption Communication and Education) are partnering to encourage families to get together for ice skating at the Pop Weaver Youth Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. We are planning two dates to give people multiple opportunities to participate. Feel free to come to one of both of these! There is no pre-registration for this event, feel free to show up and skate with your family if you are able. The more the merrier if friends want to come too!
There is a $5 parking charge at the Fairgrounds (most of the time). It is best to enter the Fairgrounds from Binford Blvd., the youth ice skating arena is just to the west of the Coliseum. Admission is $6 (4 and up; 3 and younger free) and rental skates are $4 (hockey skates $5). There is a concession stand where you can buy food and drinks. We will not have a special room set up for our group but hopefully families can identify each other and connect. Jane (12/28) and Jill (1/2) will try set up a visible meet up spot.
Dates: Monday, December 28, Public Skating from 2:30 – 4:30.
If you have questions about the December 28 date, please contact Jane Lavey (firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 373-3677). If you have questions about the January 2 date, please contact Jill Henry (email@example.com or (317) 459-3106).
