Under the leadership of Ms. Moli, director of Guizhou Children’s Welfare and Adoption Centre, preparation work began two months in advance and a detailed plan for the organization of this event,was developed so that more special needs children in Guizhou province could find adoptive families as soon as possible. 47 children were chosen as the candidate for adoption after the event.
