Misc. Information:
Shunde, the hometown of flowers, is one of four cities under the jurisdiction of Foshan City. Covering an area of 806 sq meters and with a population of 1.05 million, Shunde City is situated in the middle of the fertile Pearl River Delta, between Guangzhou and Hong Kong. It was set up as a county in the 3rd year (1452 AD) of Jintai reign of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), and conferred with the administrative status of a city in 1992 by the State Council.

Tourist destinations include the Qinghui Garden, located in Daliang Township in Shunde, a traditional complex built mainly of wood and brick during the Ming Dynasty. There are pavilions, kiosks, corridors, porches and mansions with some zigzag paths and lotus ponds, as well as a lot of well-cultivated flower plants and rare trees. Another tourist site is Baolin Temple, built in 917 AD and restored and removed to Mt.Taipingshan in Daliang. It is one of the earliest temples in Shunde, said to have existed before Shunde was set up.

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.
