2005-09 - I have two daughters and they both have the name Feng, but it is not spelled with the same Chinese character.
Thea - Feng Yuhuan was born in Fengcheng
Bella - Gan Feng Qiong was born in Fengchuan (Fengxin is another name of this town) but was transferred to Jiangxin SWI after a couple of months in Fengxin SWI.
They are not from the same orphanage. (AH)
A few families received their referrals from this orphanage in August 1999. That was the first time I've heard of someone adopting from this orphanage.. Another group adopted from Fengcheng in January 2000 and a few photos that one family received are linked below.
A mom adopting in October 2001 received referral paperwork indicating that her daughter was from Gao'an but after she arrived in China found out that her daughter had been in foster care in Fengcheng. And a mom adopting in September 2001 was told that her daughter was from Fengcheng but that her papers said Gao'an because Fengcheng didn't yet have permission to do international adoptions on it's own. And a Gao'an adoptive mom was able to visit the Gao'an orphanage and the Fengcheng orphanage. So it appears there is some connection between these two orphanages. Maybe Gao'an is the county seat for the area that Fengcheng is in. There was a similar relationship between Leping and Jingdezhen in the past until Leping began doing international adoptions on their own.
Some of the children stay at the orphanage at Fengcheng and are adopted from there but it appears that some of the children are transferred to other orphanages. Perhaps it is a small orphanage and can't always care for all the children it receives. The relationship with Gao'an was mentioned above. Another family adopted their daughter from the Jianxin orphanage but were told she was at the Fengcheng orphanage for 2.5 months first.
On the map Fengcheng appears to be a smaller town and is about 50 km southwest of Nanchang. If you or anyone you know has adopted from this orphanage I'd love to hear from you.
There is now an email list for families who have or are waiting to adopt from Fengcheng. You can subscribe by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
