Mia's Finding Ad!!!

Well this has been quite a fun filled few days. Yesterday we received an update on Mia and today we received not only a gift from our good online friends (thanks John and Karen) but we also got our finding ad for Mia in the mail. We used Brian Stuy with Research and I am happy with what we received. We ordered the deluxe package with the translation and the actual newspaper that her ad was in. I will put the newspaper in the safe with the rest of the original documents we received for Mia. I'm sure someday when she is ready we will share all this with her.

The finding ad says the following:

Ba Jun Fei. A girl. On October 29, 2006 she was found at the main gate of the Civil Affairs Bureau of Yueyang County. She was about a day old when found. She has a round face, ruddy completion, and little hair. She wore a set of pink cotton- padded outfits when found. Outside she was wrapped in a blue cloth.

That is all that was said. Although we knew most of the info already, it is surreal to actually see her in the paper lined up with another 14 abandoned baby girls tucked in a little corner section in the back of a newspaper. It is so strange to us but it is probably as normal for local Chinese people as it is for us to open up the paper and read the obituaries. It is just strange to us foreigners.

So, here is our earliest picture of our little girl-- enjoy!!


  1. Christy,

    Thanks for posting the name of the person you used to purchase Mia's finding ad. I will try to get Sara's, too, although I can't look at one of these and not get all teary-eyed. If I had one wish other than to have Sara, it would be to let her birthmother know that Sara's safe and that I'll take really, really good care of her.

    Mia looks the same - adorable!

  2. Congrats on tracking down her ad, that will mean a lot to Mia one day!
