UK Adoption Story

Juana-Mai is at home in Ballymoney
Hazel and Austin Millar from Heatherlea Place travelled to the communist country in 2004 to adopt Juana-Mai who was just 13 months.

She was found by a security guard wrapped in a blanket on the steps of Dangyang council offices and later taken to the local orphanage...

Hazel first considered adopting a baby from China after watching the 'Dying Rooms' a film which depicted the horrendous suffering imposed on young children in orphanages.

The Millars aren't the first family inspired to adopt after seeing "The Dying Rooms", a documentary made in 1995 which I've never seen and would probably find very difficult to watch. It's influence, however, has been undeniable.
