Update on "Letter Of Love From China"

We just received an update from Bonnie regarding her new book:

"Bonnie Cuzzolino is the Mom to a 6 1/2 year old daughter from Hubei, China, Jillian Mei,and she and her husband Ray are waiting for a referral for their second daughter. Bonnie has worked as a receptionist /clerical worker for many years and now has decided to be a stay at home Mom.

A long time passion to write children's books led to "Letter Of Love From China". I wanted to explain to my daughter who her birth mom was and decided to write the book for her in the form of a letter from birth mom to birth daughter. It is the story of a loving relinguishment form the child's birth, relinguishment, up to the adoption.

Parts of my own daughter's story are interjected as far as her finding place and knowledge of her birth date. Parents can replace these facts with portions of their child's story as they read the book.

The illustrations are beautiful and vivid to draw the child in. We are very proud of the book.

Please visit to order the book and visit our jewelry section too. A portion of the proceeds are donated to Holt Int. foster care program.

Success Stories

Congratulations to one of our families: Heather and her new baby girl Jillian!

"I am home with Jillian. We had a wonderful trip and I am thrilled to be home with my little girl.

Getting the update report for Jillian is a decision I am very happy with. I am lucky, I have pictures of Jillian and her time in China but I know many families aren’t that lucky. The report is great for getting you through those few months between referral and travel but for Jillian learning about her past, it’s invaluable. I’ve heard lots of stories about orphans who have virtually lost a lot of their past because they have no photos and that must be very sad for them.
I also sent it to all the members in my family so that they too would understand Jillian’s past and be able to see her for themselves.

I feel I must express how much the trip to China meant to me. I feel that one of the gifts that I can give my daughter is the love of her country, her culture and her people. I really loved being in China and was very sad to leave. I knew it would be important to have a good impression of China but I didn’t realize how easy it was going to be to fall in love with it. Now that we’re home I always point out stories about China in the news, in magazine and I can whole heartily be interested because I was so touched by China.

Thanks for all the great work you do. Here’re another couple of great pictures!

New Resources

We have just been contacted by the author of a new childrens book called "Letter Of Love From China" by Bonnie Cuzzolino.

Letter Of Love From China is a letter from a Chinese Birth Mother to her birth daughter explaining to her child the story of her birth and relinquishment.

With the growing knowledge to birth families in China that their children are being adopted internationally, Birth Mother writes the story with her hopes of her child being adopted fulfilled.

You can get more information about this book at Bonnie's website here!

History Reports

Over the last 16 months, we have completed many reports, both Update and Historical in nature. For a time, due to the costs involved and the substantial resources required to do History Reports, as well as the level of inconsistency in available information, we chose to dis-continue that service.

Many requests later, we have decided to accept requests for this service again, on a case-by-case basis. We find this work very rewarding, and know that this information will prove invaluable to an adopted child as they grow older.
If you know of someone who would like to request a History report, please have them contact us at

We look forward to continuing to serve you, and your friends by providing these valuable links to our adopted childrens past.

Sincerely, with best wishes for all your continued success,
Your China-Babies Team
