From the NYT "Relative Choices" Blog

A very touching article by Jeff Gamage, author of "China Ghosts: My Daughter's Journey to America, My Passage to Fatherhood":

Finding Zhao Gu
At about 10 a.m. on June 19, 2003, in the western Chinese city of Wuwei, a man named Ma Guoxing was walking across town, intent on a pending business appointment.

But as he neared the Wei’an Health Center, he noticed a crowd of people at the front gate, and he interrupted his journey to go and see what had so captivated their interest.

On the ground was a newborn baby, a girl, crying loudly.

Ma Guoxing did what no one else would do: He reached down and picked up the child. Then he turned around and began to walk back the way he had come, the baby in his arms.

Read the whole thing.

That was a really neat story.

We know Eliana's finding spot and the name of the person who found her but we don't have that same info for Karys, our newest.
