It is estimated that there are currently 712,000 orphans in China. This is only a portion of the 147 plus million orphan children worldwide. Why are there so many orphaned children in China? China’s population is continuing to grow, so in order to control this growth, China adopted a “one-child policy” which has led to many children being abandoned.
