A New Journey - Sponsorship

As I am sure you can imagine, adoption is something that means everything to our family. The plight of orphans throughout the world is very dear to our hearts. Over the past few months I have been following a website that reaches out to orphaned children in several orphanages in China.

After reading about numerous children who have been helped throughout the years by everything this organization has done for them, I realized that it was our turn to do something as well. Today, I signed up to help one little baby girl in China, named Mia. She is located in Hengshan, Hunan, and was born on January 7 of this year. The organization that is the link between our sponsorship and this adorable little baby is Pearl River Outreach. "The Mission of Pearl River Outreach is to improve the lives of orphaned children in China through basic professional medical training of staff, volunteers, and foster parents who work in, and through, Chinese orphanages. It is our belief that simple, standardized professional training in basic infant and child care is the first step toward the healthy growth and development that every child deserves."

If you feel it in your heart that you can reach out your hand to one little child in China, please visit Pearl River Outreach. In the mean time, without further ado... here is the little girl that we are sponsoring, Mia.
