The premiere organization for obtaining information about your child's history and birthplace.

Customized Analyses
Birth Parent Search AnalysisWith our more than 10 years of experience gathering information, statistics, and insight into China adoptions, we offer an Orphanage Reliability Analysis to help determine the accuracy of your child's orphanage information and a Birth Parent Search Analysis to help you decide whether or not to pursue a search for your child.
Orphanage InformationWe offer a good starting point of basic information about China's orphanages for adoptive families who want to learn more about their child's birthplace. We've started with pages for Guangdong, Jiangxi and Chongqing Provinces. We welcome contributions!
Finding Ads
Finding AdsThe finding ads published by the orphanages in China are an important part of our children's lives. Go to our Finding Ads section to see if we might have your child's finding ad.
Photos & DVDs
Photos & DVDThe impressive collection of photos and movies we have gathered of orphanage cities in China include scenes of various finding locations, government offices and main attractions, as well as cultural and scenic highlights. See if we have your child's birth city either in photos or on a DVD.

What Research-China.Org Has & Why You Really Need It
Research-China.Org has grown a lot in the 10 years we have been researching in China. At the start of our 11th year, we thought it might be useful to remind or inform families just what we have to offer adoptive families that seek to understand their child's history, and learn more about their orphanage. So, here is a list of exactly what we have to offer. Go to blog.
