Whitworth College Faculty Adoption Stories

Whitworth College faculty and the rising trend of International Adoption
Not only does Ginny Whitehouse, associate professor of communication studies, have two adopted children, but she is also the coordinator of the Spokane branch of Families with Children from China (F.C.C.), which includes 250 families who have adopted children from China.

Whitehouse adopted Kaili from Guiping, Guangxi in 2001. Kaili is now 6-years-old. Whitehouse also adopted Marie, who is now 2 and a half-years-old, from XiuShan, Chongqing. Both of her adopted children were about one-year-old at the time of their adoptions.

Whitehouse adopted Kaili and Marie through Dillon International.

“My sister, who is also a single mom, adopted at the same time,” Whitehouse said. “It is an important thing for us because we have nieces who are the same age.”
