We appreciate your help in making this project worthwhile to adoption families.

orphanage Description:
The Maoming orphanage program stretches back to March 1981, but became involved in the international adoption program in 1994. Although the location of the orphanage has always been on 32 Guandunan Road, in 1999 the old facility was demolished and the current facility built. The Maoming City orphanage remains one of the nicest facilities in Guangdong Province, with a medical facility and kindergarten.

Misc. Information:
Maoming is 5 hours southwest of Guangdong by rail. It is a prefecture city, and includes Gaozhou and Huazhou cities, Dianbai and Xinyi counties, and Maonan and Maogang districts. Its population is 5.9 million, of which 640,000 live in Maoming City proper.

The average temperature is 23 degrees (January 15.5, July 28.6).

Oil is the largest industry in Maoming. Bananas, Mangos, and Lichi are rural crops. Tourist destinations include the "#1 Beach of China" resort in Maogang district.

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.

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.
