Lixin 10-2014 6

Our Cleft Bottle Project is underway and off to a great start. Soft bottles designed for feeding children with cleft lip or palate are not available for purchase in China. In 2012 we worked with the Mead Johnson Company to have the bottles produced in China. We delivered those bottles to orphanages and healing homes and wherever we heard of a need. Read more.

Jose, Lover of Life

Several years ago, we received a call about a newly-found little boy who was born with cleft lip. I remember seeing his first photo thinking he had some pretty wonderful hair, and I was so thankful when he was able to be moved to our Anhui Healing Home right away for nurturing care.

My husband and I adopted our daughter from Anhui Province last month.  This was our second adoption trip to China, and an important part for me was meeting the babies that I know so well through my role as Anhui Healing Home (AHH) Coordinator. Read more.

Megan

Since 2005 when she was just a baby, Megan has been a resident of our foster care program. Like any child in our programs, we had dreams for Megan that included seeing her in the arms of her forever family. However, we did not know that her adoption file was available until this past week. We’re so excited that Megan too will have her chance to have a family of her own!

When she was still an infant, Megan was matched with a family.  However, that potential placement was disrupted prior to finalization when clear signs of cerebral palsy were discovered. Now nine years old, we have watched her grow up from her baby days to the beautiful girl that she is now. Read more.
