Our Chinese directors send us updates of each child on a regular basis - I thought I would share some of our little stars with you.

Meet Ma Rong Guang he came to us as a tiny, sickly baby several years ago.  He has just turned three.  It has been incredible to watch the...

The first floor of the orphanage houses the older children ... those who have been there for as long as they can remember.  They are forgotten children, left behind ... too old for the second and third floor ... without hope. There are many children, few staff.  It is...

Christmas is not widely celebrated in China but is increasingly becoming a 'commercial success' with Santa (Shèngdàn Lǎorén - Christmas Old Man), lights and trees seen in some of the bigger cities.  JiaoZuo is not considered a big city and Christmas Day is not a public...

Meet our six newest Eaglets - HuDong, ZiQi, LanLan, XiangLi, XiaoRui and HaoYu.  They are all known to us as they have all been attending school with us at XiWangLeYuan. Now they are home.

Seven years in and I still haven't quite worked out the criteria for which children have their adoption paperwork completed and which children don't.

Of course, the ultimate goal is to be able to support families to remain intact ... this would mean that children wouldn...

The first time I went into an orphanage I was struck by how quiet it was.  I couldn't believe that a room full of babies or toddlers could be totally silent like it was.  In orphanages all over the world, it is like this ... there are often many children and few carers...
