November is National Adoption Month, and what better time to feature some of the girls in our programs who continue to wait for their opportunity to become part of a forever family!

Despite the misconception that Chinese orphanages are filled with girls, approximately 75% of the orphaned children in China waiting for families are boys.
We think so highly of the boys in our programs and want to share those who continue to wait to be chosen by a family. Some of these boys have been waiting for years. Read more.
Orphaned children deserve to know love.
Without a doubt, this statement is something we hope everyone supports. Instead of just wishing that orphaned children know love, we are inviting you to take action to make this dream come true. This holiday season, our inspiration is “Love in Action”.
Hip hip hooray! We are overjoyed to welcome little Miss Gerri to her new foster care family in Sanmenxia.
Gerri is two years old and has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Although she is still a bit wobbly, she can walk and get from place to place. She has been putting a lot of effort into mastering walking! Read more.
October is National Down Syndrome Awareness month, a special opportunity to celebrate and recognized the accomplishments of individuals with Down Syndrome. In recognition, we want to spend time this month celebrating the children from our foster care programs who are waiting to be matched with permanent families through adoption!

Are you looking for a way that you can really make a difference in the life of one specific child?

Across China this past weekend, families celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival, second only in importance to the Spring Festival (also known as Chinese New Year) celebrated earlier in the year. September 27 was a full moon, and for this reason the day is often referred to as the “Moon Festival”. It is a time for families to reunite and enjoy being together.
Every month we are fortunate to receive many wonderful photos of foster children in our programs getting lots of love from their foster parents. These images bring a big smile to our faces and receive many positive comments by those who view them. However, sometimes these photos raise this question: “If the foster family loves the child so much, why don’t they just adopt him?”
