FCCNT Summer Swim Events

The families of FCC North Texas found a great way to beat the heat without dealing with those crowded waterparks at our Annual Summer Swim Event, a private party where the families of FCC North Texas got the whole waterpark to themselves!

There was fun, frolic and a splashing good time!

Held in fun locations around the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, including the Flower Mound Community Activity Center in Flower Mound, the Chisholm Aquatics Center in Hurst. and the Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex in Carrolton, the swim events are a favorite time for our families. .

Screening "Somewhere Between"

Please join Families with Children from China – North Texas on Sunday, November 18 at 3:00 pm for a special screening of the highly-acclaimed documentary SOMEWHERE BETWEEN.

Director Linda Goldstein Knowlton’s (THE WORLD ACCORDING TO SESAME STREET) contemporary profile of Chinese adoptees coming of age in contemporary America is a deeply moving documentary that illustrates that even the most specific of experiences can be universally relatable. This film takes you on the intimate journey of four girls adopted from China navigating through the issues of race, gender and belonging as they all attempt to answer the uniquely human question, “Who am I?” SOMEWHERE BETWEEN lets these articulate girls tell their own stories fro m their points of view, which makes it unique among other films on international adoption. This unique perspective makes it a must-see for anyone touched by adoption, but the film also has a universal appeal because viewers—no matter their color, gender, or culture—will find themselves exploring their own sense of identity and their feelings about family and belonging as they watch the girls’ on their path to discovering who they are.

September - Mid-Autumn Moon Festival

FCC North Texas celebrates the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival by gathering at a local park for outdoor fun and mooncakes. Past venues include Cottonwood Park in Richadson.  

One of the most important celebrations in China, the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival is an evening celebration when families and friends gather together to light lanterns, eat moon cakes and appreciate the full moon when it is at its roundest and brightest. In China, this full moon is symbolic of a bountiful harvest and the reuniting of family, much like the American celebration of Thanksgiving. (Want to learn more about the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival?
