The Mei (May) magazine is a bi-monthly publication that is wholesome and age appropriate magazine with a special emphasis on issues specific to Chinese adoptees age 7 to 14.
In every issue of Mei, there will be articles on school-related issues, seasonal crafts and health or fitness. Other features will include an advice column dedicated to personal problems and solutions and a forum in which readers will share their feelings and opinions. You’ll also find a reader profile that will highlight a unique girl and her special achievements. Mei is dedicated to instilling pride in our readers by providing information on the People’s Republic of China as well as featuring a role model with the personal and professional successes of a notable Asian-American woman.
The vision of Mei Magazine is twofold: To instill confidence and to create a forum in which “our girls” can share and enjoy their special sisterhood!
