Ever wondered why our Homeland Ties logo is a traditional Chinese knot? It’s an iconic Chinese item. You can see everywhere in China; from hanging on taxi driver’s rearview mirrors to serving as large decorations at weddings. But it’s also because of how they’re made. They are woven from cord by many curves, overlaps and loops.
We believe this is a perfect metaphor for gaining culture. Acquiring culture happens in the same way Chinese knots are made; gradually and through multiple and ongoing experiences. Our culture and connections boxes are a convenient and authentic way for your family and China adoptee[s] to do just that.
Each standard box explores a specific aspect of Chinese culture and contains Chinese snacks, cultural items and activities for your family to enjoy. They’re mailed to your door every two months.
