About this orphanage:
The Nancheng County is located about 3 1/2 hours from Nanchang. A small facility, it gives home to about 30 children around 12 months of age. On Sunday, the children go home with the caretakers. (Information courtesy of Chantalle Tiebie)

The current facility has two baby rooms -- one room approximately 8 x 3 meters and the other room approximately 8 x 10 meters -- for the children to play in. Both rooms are located on the first floor. The children are allowed to play on the veranda. They also had a bathroom with running water and a small toilet. The orphanage has no showers, but the nannies put the babies in a small tub. The second level is devoted to the elderly and mentally disabled living. As of May 2008, there were about 18 babies/children in total in the facility.

The new facility is scheduled for completion in October 2008. (Information courtesy of Elvira den Ujil)

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.

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.

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.
