Top Ten Photos of 2014: Every Child Counts
As this year comes to a close, we bring you the photos that YOU and our other supporters chose as your two favorites of 2014!
When our foster care director visited an orphanage in Anhui Province this year, to see if there were more children who could join our program, this little boy grabbed onto her hand and wouldn’t let go. It was like he was saying, “Don’t forget me!” We are so happy to report that this gorgeous little guy has been chosen for adoption! Hopefully he will be meeting his forever family in the very near future.
By an overwhelming majority, this beautiful moment was chosen by our supporters as the number one image for 2014.
Beckett came into our hands as a tiny infant, with severe jaundice, pneumonia, and a heart defect. Weighing just six pounds at three months of age, tests showed that he had most likely been born prematurely. Our healing home staff poured their hearts into this little boy, and Beckett absolutely loved being held. In May of this year, Beckett’s time on this earth ended when he received his angel wings in heaven. We believe it is an incredible tribute that you have honored this child by selecting his sweet face as the top photograph of the year. Beckett, we will always remember you!
You can see all of our Top Ten Photos here. We hope you enjoyed each and every one of them and the stories behind them! Thank you to each of our supporters for helping make a real difference in each of these children’s lives, and hundreds of other children like them. May these photos remind all of us of the importance of each and every child. “Every Child Counts”
