About this orphanage:
The original facility was used until October
2002. The current orphanage facility was completed in October 2002.
It has seven baby rooms, four on the second level and three on the
third. Previous to 2000, many of the children were kept in off-site
foster families, but as the number of girls entering the orphanage
decreased, the number of foster families used has decreased. Now,
most kids are watched by on-site foster mothers, who are actually
permanent nannies. They live in the rooms with the five or so kids
they watch, and are literally a foster mother to them. Seven
of these women are shown here, and their names are: Gao Dong
Xiu, Yi Mao Nu, He Gui Lan, Zeng Yun Fang, Ding Sang Yuan, Wu Xiu
Ying, and Zeng Xiang Zhen. These women are listed as foster mothers
for many of the children adopted after 2003.
Director Gao has been the director for over 10 years, and has no
plans on moving until she retires in 2013.

Available from Research-China:
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.
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.
• 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
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.

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
