Xuwen is the city in China where Maia was born. As you can see, it is a very beautiful place. It is located on the very Southern tip of China, near Hainan Island. My friend Linda, a wonderful Xuwen mom, recently took a trip to Xuwen and spent time at the CWI (orphanage). She took tons of pictures of the town, the resort she stayed in and even of the orphanage staff. She spent a lot of time with the directors and talked about our children. Linda has expressed that the staff/nannies were extremely caring toward the babies and were very excited to hear about how well our girls are doing. She even got the email address of the director's daughter (who speaks English). I emailed Jess (the director's daughter) and attached a recent picture of Maia. I also asked her to say "thank you" to her mother and the rest of the staff. I really hope she emails me back! We cannot thank Linda enough for providing this link to Maia's birthplace.
