About this orphanage:
The Yujiang orphanage (pictured at right) was built in 1961. The orphanage joined the international adoption in 1993, and more than 900 total children have been internationally adopted from Yujiang. The baby room facility was completed in 1991. It contains ten babyrooms, and at one time the orphanage employed 15 nannies. In 1992 the orphanage began fostering most of the children with area foster families, and today no children are cared for in the orphanage facility.

Chen Hong Ming has been the director of Yujiang County SWI since 2008. He is pictured at right with some of his staff.

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.

Foster Families -Through the course of our research journeys over the years, Research-China has come across many foster families. Since they can often provide valuable life history for our children, we try to put adoptive families in touch with the famlies who cared for their children in China. The foster families and foster mothers who cared for children from this orphanage are listed here. If you find your child's name in our list, you can contact us for the foster family's phone number or address. If you have any foster family information that you think may be helpful to others, please let us know by e-mail:

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.

Orphanage City Photo Book - is pleased to offer beautifully illustrated books on orphanage hometowns, including Gao'An City. Designed for adopted children to learn about their birthplaces, each book has at least 21 pages filled with dozens of beautiful photos of area people, scenery and the orphanage, as well as lots of information about the cities themselves.

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.

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.
