Where in the world is Hannah Mei Davis?

Currently, Hannah is at the Shangrao Children's Welfare Center in the Jiangxi province of China. For those who are curious I have included some maps of the country & provinces. And for those who are even more curious I found these interesting tidbits about the Jiangxi province from

The province holds an important place in China's revolutionary history. On August 1, 1927, the capital, Nanchang, was the site of an uprising in the Nationalist army by a group of Communist officers. The rebellion was soon crushed, but Jiangxi became a Communist base and was the starting point of the epic Long March. The scenic Gan River valley helps make the province rich in food and fiber production, and there is a thriving timber industry. The province is famous for its porcelain because of rich deposits of kaolin (china clay) and petuntse (white briquette). Other industries are tungsten and coal mining, oil refining and textiles. It is home to 40 million people.
