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:
Director Gao has been the director for over 10 years, and has no plans on moving until she retires in 2013.

Adoption Stats:
2003 – 77
2004 -- 44
2005 – 42
2006 – 18

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.

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.

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.
