Adoption in China
Pingxiang Orphanage

A family that had adopted from Pingxiang in July 2000 sent a one time use camera to the Pingxiang Orphanage Director in early 2001.  They received the film back in May 2001 with the following photos.


These first three photos are drawings of the new orphanage building.  The first is of all the buildings, the second is the Baby/Youth section and the third is the Juvenile section.

These last two photos, taken in 2000, are of this family's daughter while in foster care prior to her adoption.  Also in the same foster home were these twins, who were apparently later adopted by a family in the US, possibly the Chicago are.
