Research-China has three different blogs:
1) Our free, public blog, Research-China.Org

This blog includes essays from my experiences researching China's orphanages. My intent is to educate adoptive parents about Chinese culture, China adoptions and aspects of their child's early life in China. To receive updates to this blog by e-mail:

Research-China's Blogs
2) Our subscription blog, The Rest of the Story

You can access this blog only by being a subscriber. Due to the often sensitive nature of these essays, subscription to this private blog is a one-time fee of $20. In this blog I explore the issues and topics surrounding China's international adoption program in more detail than I can offer in the open, public blog. We hope that the identification and financial barriers will encourage a more detailed discussion than in the open blog.
