    I would love to learn more about her. Is she 8 or 9 by now? I don’t know what the process is to apply for adoption of one of these children. Our daughters are in college and aren’t home much anymore, so we could give her a lot of attention and love.

    Hello, we would be very interested in adopting Donna into our family. We have one little girl, Ella (8), from China and would love her to have a sister around the same age to share her experiences with, growing up. Please let us know how to make it happen.

    Donna’s file is not yet ready. Her file is at the provincial level and will be assigned to BAAS when complete. Please contact Xiaoqing Cai at xiaoqing@baas.org and ask to be placed on the list to view her file when ready. Families already signed on with BAAS are usually given priority.
