You must subscribe to a list to be able to search the archives. The APC and PAC lists are quite active so getting the digest form is suggested. These will give you access to the experiences of many hundreds of other families in all stages of the China adoption experience.

Orphanage- and Province-specific Yahoo! Groups

This is a complete list as of May 27, 2001. A handful of groups that appear to be inactive and are associated with the same orphanage as one of the groups on this list were omitted.

This list will be updated monthly. It is available along with a number of other lists of discussion groups in the Bookmark section of RaisingChinaChildren at

If you have any additions to this list, please e-mail then to Ron Margolin at

There are many orphanages that do not have a group. If your orphanage is not on this list, please consider starting a group. They'll be glad to help.
