Baoping Village, Henan, China.

We feel so blessed to have gotten some pictures of the village where Noah was born.  Baoping Village has less than 500 people.  I was told it is extremely rural with no police station, hospitals or government officials in the town.  Baoping is an agricultural community, with good crops and gravel roads.

The town officials home, notice the more elaborate door. 

 A farm
 A typical home
The road entering into Baoping Village
As you can imagine.  These pictures are invaluable for Noah, and our family.
