Orphanage Description:

Misc. Information:
Bao'An is a district of Shenzhen City. Originally, Shenzhen City was named Bao'An County during the Eastern Jin Dynasty (331 AD). Shenzhen was named "Dongguan" in the Tang Dynasty, and then Xin'An County during the Ming Dynasty (1573 AD). It reverted back to Bao'An in 1914, and was finally called Shenzhen City in 1979.

Shenzhen City has a population of 7.01 million, most of whom are migrants from other areas of China. It sits on the eastern bank of the Pearl River, bordering Hong Kong on the south and Dongguan and Huizhou on the north.

The average temperature in January is 14.1 C and 28.2 C in July.

Available from Research-China:
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.

Orphanage Data Book - We offer adoptive families the opportunity to obtain all finding ad data for their child's orphanage as early as 1999 (date varies by orphanage), compiled and organized into a beautiful, 6"x9" hardbound book.

Photographs of City - Over the years, Research-China has visited many orphanages throughout China. We have built a large catalog of photos from these journeys that are available to families for purchase. They include, for example, pictures of the orphanages and staff, foster parents, finding locations, sites around the villages, towns and cities.

Maps - Our maps are the perfect way to locate orphanages, finding locations, and other important features of your child's city. We offer maps in originals and scanned versions.

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.
