Finding Ad

Since 1999, the orphanages in China are required to run a provincial newspaper advertisement for children that are found and brought to their orphanage. These ads contain information about where and when the children were found and which orphanage is caring for them. Originally these were text-only ads, but most provinces now include photographs in their ads. These photographs are usually the earliest available pictures of the children, some from as young as a few weeks old. Below is an example of a finding ad. We have been able to locate Emma's and should receive it in two weeks. This will be the youngest picture we will have of her. I am sure it will be very impotant for her to have a baby picture. We used a service to find us the ad. We will also get the whole page that will include all of the babies that have been found at that time.
