Just wanted to introduce myself. I have a 3 year old daughter from Jiangxi and am waiting for a 2 year old little girl in Shaanxi. We are on day 113 of our wait for LOA so hopefully we will travel in September.

I'm not Barbara, but I do have a 13 year old who I adopted from China as an infant. (As well as an 8 year old as well.)

My oldest never talks about adoption with me anymore, but I know that she discusses it with her friends. She has an old friend who was adopted domestically, and she has a friend from middle school who she only met last year who was also adopted in China. I'm fairly sure that they have discussed adoption at least a little bit.

We've tried to get her involved in some of the teen and pre-teen groups that FCC runs around our area, but she won't go to them anymore. But I feel as long as she has at least one friend who shares a similar story, that helps.

Good luck everyone!

Hey Barbara,

Any advice for those of us who haven't yet had our sons and daughters hit double digits?

My daughter is now 11 years old. We adopted her when she was 10.5 months old.

Has anyone adopted from the Yifeng SWI in Jiangxi? My husband and I will be traveling in 4-5 weeks to pick up our daughter and I would like some more info about the province and the orphanage.
