Nanchaun, Chongqing - Alyzabeth's Orphanange

I'm going back in time trying to piece together some details surrounding the orphanage where Alyzabeth (Nan Min Hua) is waiting for us. I didn't find a great deal of information so maybe that is good news!

I found this information on how her orphanage did following the massive 7.8 earthquake on May 13, 2008 from Love Without Boundaries:

Nanchuan, Chongqing: All children are safe and no damage reported.

The charity group, LWB, is very active at the Nanchuan, Chongqing orphanage spearheading fund raisings for clothing and cloth diapers.
LWB also has purchased 2 Heating and Cooling units for the orphanage as well as sponsoring a monthly nutrition program.

Below is a picture from the Nanchuan Orphanage from the blog Emi O:

Another picture of Alyzabeth's orphanage taken in June 2007 from Fairytales Do Come True:

Nanchuan is a small orphanage with what I believe to be only 3 rooms while normally caring for 20-30 little ones at any given time .
If anyone has additional information about this orphanage, we would love to chat with you!

I'm STILL looking for pics of Joanna Mei's orphanage. We have a few of her inside, but none of the general conditions. JM's place used the baby walkers as well - that one pic looks like a traffic jam on I-4.

It's wild how our world grows so much larger through our daughter's little lives . . . We become interested in all the places they've been and those people that have cared for them. . . We search for photos of their orphanages hoping that maybe we will see them(?) or at least learn a bit more about them.

We are close.

How amazing to have information from her orphanage! We knew very little about ours, and hubby was shocked when he visited it.
I think it is great that other families that go take pictures and share them!
