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 are commonly called "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.
Tonight I couldn't sleep, and through using a Chinese search engine (www.baidu.com) I was able to locate Mackenzie's Finding Ad! What an absolute treasure for us have a picture of our sweet daughter when she was an infant.
