Guang'an Social Welfare Institute
These are the only photos I have of the SWI that Zoe lived in. Bianca, from the Netherlands, adopted Zoe's best friend, one month before we adopted Zoe. She was given these photos. I often show Zoe Bianca's blog and she gets very excited to see Xiao Mei!
The SWI was built in 2009, up on a hill where the people who lived there, would be safer. We were told when we went that there was no way we would be allowed to visit on our adoption trip, but if we ever come back, we can apply one month before for permission to tour the facility. Someday we will do this. I believe it will tell us a lot about her first 3 1/2 years of life.
