Notice: My maps are intended to show the general locations of orphanages that participate in international adoptions. They are hand-rendered, and cannot be considered to be to scale, and many elements have been estimated. As with any project of this magnitude, it is always possible that there may be errors or omissions. If you become aware of any, please contact me by email.
The other cities/towns shown on the maps are those of my choosing; selected either because of high populations, or because of their relative locations to the orphanages, or for other reasons, such as requests from adoptive families. These maps are 'living documents' that will evolve over time as more information is obtained. As more orphanages participate in international adoptions, newer versions of the maps will be made available. These maps are works of art and not to be used for navigation or any commercial purposes whatsoever and may not be pulished on any website, blog, listserve, etc. without my express written permission - see copyright notice. Full listings of orphanages included on the maps can be viewed by visiting 'The Orphanages' link on the left.
