"Since 1999, the orphanages in China are required to run a provincial newspaper advertisement for children that are found and brought to their orphanage. We call them "Finding Ads." 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 ".
Maggie is less than a month old in her finding ad picture. We feel so blessed to have the original paper that her finding ad is in. The orphanage will post a childs picture one time in a provincial newspaper. (They usually post about six times a year). We used Research-China and they were wonderful.
