Saw your link on the RQ site and decided to check it out. Our daughter (adopted in March 05) was also from ZhuZhou. It is a smaller orphanage and they take very good care of the children. There is a Yahoo! group for ZZ Families if you are interested.

Congratulations--Ava is a real cutie!

Congrats from another ZZ mom! We adopted from there last June. Your Ava would have been there I suppose, but we didn't see the babies her age. I have to tell you that we felt our little Xiao Ying Hing was very loved by the sweet nannies there. Also, ZZ is only a 1.5 bus hr ride from Changsha, so maybe you can visit...well worth it, imo. There is a yahooo group for ZZ families if you are interested.


Kramer said...

Look at all that beautiful hair. She is such a doll! Congrats! I can't wait to follow the rest of the journey to you precious daughter.
