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"
If you would like to send a letter or package
to the orphanage, click
here for a downloadable address label from BlessedKids.com.
Family Newsgroup - All adoptive families should join their child's
orphanage newsgroup. This allows families to exchange information,
locate crib-mates, and otherwise remain informed of events and information
about their child's orphanage. Click
here for more information about the importance of these Yahoo groups.
