I have some new friends I've met through the YangXi Orphanage Yahoo group. They have helped me process the cribs with boards in them. The Guangdong province is very hot and sultry and many people sleep on mats or boards due to this. These adoptive parents who have actually visited the orphanage say that the boards are very smooth and that the babies are very well taken care of there.
I processed my orphanage research so well when reading about it the last couple of years... But when it became personal - and it was "my" baby...I reacted differently than I thought I would. Guess it is that protective mode kicking in! :)
