The map, photos of the institute and the daily routine  were given to us at the time of the adoption.  I have no current information on if this information is still provided to new parents.  It is the type of stuff that my wife and I would have liked to have once we received our referral, so I figured it might be useful to others.  The map is a VERY large file (almost 11 mb), so I don't recommend downloading it unless you have a very fast connection or a lot of time.
