About this orphanage:
Fuling is interesting in that nearly every child found in the district after May 2006 has been found "at the gate of the orphanage." No other orphanage of Fuling's size has such a high percentage of orphanage gate finding locations.

Misc. Information:
The place name means "Fu (River) Cemetery" because some rulers of the State of Ba were originally buried there. Fuling is well known in China as the home of "The Hot Pickled Mustard Tuber," made from a large, radish-like vegetable indigenous to the area. (

The Fuling orphanage director is Yang Pei Shu.

Adoption Stats:
2003 -- 569
2004 -- 318
2005 -- 143
2006 -- 135
2007 -- 68

Finding Ads - Finding ads are published by the orphanage as the first step for international adoption. The photos used in the ads pre-date a child's referral photo by several months. Additionally, information contained in the ads is very valuable to adoptive families, especially those who have not traveled yet.

DVD of City - Research-China.Org's orphanage DVDs provide a great look into the city of your child's birth. Orphanage tours (often including babyrooms), finding locations, and cultural and historical sites provide a wonderful introduction to your child's birth city.

Birth Parent Search Analysis - A deeper analysis of the orphanage submissions, finding location distribution, gender and health ratios, and other interesting and important characteristics of the adoption program, is available through our Birth Parent Search Analysis. This report is specifically designed for adoptive families who wish to have reliable data to use in relating a child's history, or in deciding to do additional research in a particular orphanage area.
