Every day we get closer to bringing Mei Mei home from China. (Those of you who are familiar with the adoption lingo, we are expecting our Article 5 pick-up any day now, and Travel Approvals have been coming fairly fast.) We
As we have been getting ready for our trip, I realized there is a wonderful opportunity to help, to do something special for the precious little ones in China. Our family is so excited about this, and hope YOU will participate with us!
Have you heard of the New Day Foster Home in China?
Yes, they are a foster home, or rather, several foster homes in China, taking in special need orphans, loving them and providing for all their needs. Their website says:
"Bringing Hope to the Hopeless and the Fatherless Home."
Alleviating the pain and suffering of Chinese orphans born with physical handicaps by providing for their every physical, mental and spiritual need, we give these children a future and a hope while they wait for their very own loving family.
With loyal supporters, a dedicated staff, and caring volunteers, New Day Foster Home's core mission of providing life-saving surgeries and a loving home to orphans with special needs from around China continues to transform lives. Since its founding in October 2000, New Day Foster Home has expanded its programs to reach more children living in government institutions across the country through outreach work like the Formula Project and other initiatives. Every child deserves a healthy start and to know the love of a family, and our work makes these dreams a reality for hundreds of children.
We believe that love makes a difference, and we invite you to join us on this journey of hope.
Here is a film about New Hope Foster Home, made by 60 Minutes producer Johnny Drimmer.
And so, Our Mothership Adventures readers, family and friends all have an opportunity to help New Day Foster Home in Beijing. There are items needed from United States, and since we are traveling to Beijing, we can fill a suitcase for New Day Foster Home, and bring them much needed supplies!
Here is a list of items needed. A list that has medical supplies, formula, and pre-school items like paint with water books. We would love to have you participate!!
What YOU can do, is send us any of these items, and we'll pack them, and take them to China. Or you can shop online and have the items shipped to us. Or, you can send us a donation (small or great), and we will purchase the items, pack them, and take them to New Day Foster Home.
New Day North, their Inner Mongolia branch, has an Amazon Wishlist of things that they'd love for their kiddos. We can bring items to New Day Beijing, and they will ship the items to New Day North - easy peasy!
Leave us a comment, send an email, or contact us on Facebook, and let's get started! (Friends and family, do check first where to send items, we tend to be on the move...)
**** This would be a wonderful way to get children involved too. Families, clubs, co-ops, Bible studies.. No amount of help is too small!!
PS. There are other ways to help New Day Foster Home, as well. You can give donations directly to them, and/or sponsor their children. Read more here.
Kiinan matka lähestyy... Pian saamme Mei Mein syliimme! Meillä ei ole tarkkoja päiviä vielä, mutta on mahdollista, että matkustamme jo ensi kuussa! Aiomme ottaa mukaan ylimääräisen matkalaukun, ja viedä sen mukanamme New Day Foster Home-lastenkotiin Pekingiin, jossa hoidetaan erityistarpeisia lapsia. Tästä linkistä löytyy lisää tietoa heistä, ja mitä he tarvitsevat. Voisitko sinäkin auttaa? Tämä olisi upea keino lastenkin auttaa.. Mikään määrä ei ole liian pieni. Meille voi lähettää lahjoituksen, tai lähettää tarvikkeita, ja me otamme ne mukaan, ja viemme lastenkotiin. Tule mukaan Our Mothership Adventures-projektiin auttamaan pikkuisia Kiinassa!
