orphanage Description:
The Yangjiang orphanage complex has a large red brick building at the front which houses the administration offices. To the rear is a white, three-story building that welcomes you with the words, "Love has No Borders". On the second floor of this building is a single, large baby room. As you walk in the front door, directly in front of you is a 6 by 15' gated play area. The gate is a children's gate made of bright polished stainless steel. Also in this large room are about 21 stainless-steel cribs, with one child in each crib.

The orphanage is located in the old part of town (Jiangcheng District), near a large park (Zhongshan Park). The vast majority of children are found in the area immediately around the orphanage, including restaurants, water plants, factories, etc.

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.
