Adoption in China

Guixi Social Welfare Institute

"My wife and I recently returned from Guixi with our beautiful daughter, Guo YongJia.  We were able to visit the Guixi Social Welfare Institute and we took many pictures.  A few of these are included below.  The site led me to believe that they do not allow visitors but they were very welcoming and open.   (from TM, 1-9-04)
