Group Description

As many people have been setting up groups so families who have adopted from a particular orphanage in China can keep in touch, I set up this group as an experiment. I had only encountered about half a dozen to a dozen families as of the beginning of this site in May 2000 who had adopted or were in the process of adopting from ChaoHu, and am pleased that other ChaoHu families have found their way to this site so we might maintain a correspondence. The ChaoHu orphanage is a small one with what we estimate to be about 80 children, but starting with a few adoptions from that orphanage in 1998, conditions appear to have improved sufficiently that the CCAA seems to be referring children from that orphanage with greater frequency. As of 2002 conditions in the orphanage are reported to be very good, (from what we have seen, to date no families have toured the interior. Photos of the interior have been provided by the orphanage, however) Many families relate in their posts of the apparent love bestowed by the caregivers there. It appears there are three orphanages in Chaohu City, but only one from which international adoptions are currently allowed so if the formal name I have for the orphanage varies slightly from the name you have, be pretty assured it is the same place. My daughter was about 3 in Sept. 98 when we met her, and I am hoping there will be others who have adopted older children among those who find their way here. NOTE: I have set this site to NOT accept attachments, so please be advised of this: sometimes servers interpret Forwarded mail as an attachment, so if you wish to forward something, it would be best to "cut and paste" the text. There is also a Files section and Photos section into which files and images may be uploaded. Welcome, other parents, and extended families of ChaoHu children! Sincerely,
Ann Finneran, Owner/Moderator.
