About this orphanage:
Qianjiang began international adoptions in 2004. The orphanage is located at Sanyuangong Road #688. The orphanage has four babyrooms, two on the 4th floor and two on the 5th floor of the facility. There are 10 nannies that man each room, each one holding about 10-15 kids. Ms. Cai Xiao Rong is the director of the Qianjiang Orphanage.

There are about 90 babies in the program, with about half in the orphanage and half in foster care. Most spend a little time with a foster family, but only after they have reached two or three months old. Most of the foster families live in the city around the orphanage. The foster families have a very deep respect for the director.

Qianjiang has been undergoing a city-wide renumbering project over the past few years. This has resulted in many streets and especially street numbers being redone. This has important ramifications for finding location research.

Misc. Information:

Ms. Cai Xiao Rong is the director of the Qianjiang Orphanage. Her boss in the Social Welfare System is Director Ran. He is over the retirement home, the orphanage, and all of the various wocial welfare components in Qianjiang. He has little to do with the orphanage, however, as Ms. Cai is the person in charge.

2003 -- 137

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.

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.
