Give A Child A Chance At Life!
The Shanghai Healing Home is funded 100% by the generous donations of our sponsors and one-time donors. We are very grateful to accept monetary or in-kind donations of any amount and form. A list of in-kind needs can be found on our website. Below are suggested sponsorship plans if you or a group of your friends would like to fully sponsor the cost of one baby's daily expenses.
How Can I Help?
Many people are asking us lately, "what can I do to help?". Right now, SHH is in need of new Baby Sponsorships. To date, we have a total of 15 fully sponsored babies and another 4 needing sponsorship. Baby sponsorships are a huge part of being able to pay the monthly expenses and care for the children. Even before we can pay for their medical needs and surgeries, we need to be able to pay for their daily needs in the home.
You can find a list of the babies needing sponsorship on our website here:

April & May Birthdays
Advocating For Adoption
Our little Shang XR is 22 months old. His adoption file is now ready and he is waiting to be matched to his Forever Family. He came to SHH at 2 months old with a small heart problem that has not needed surgery. He was really tiny so we thought he was premature. As he grew older, we noticed that even though he eats well he was not growing on target for his age leading the doctors to believe that he has some form of dwarfism. We also learned that he could not hear very well so now he wears hearing aids.
我们的Shang XR22个月大。 他的收养档案现已准备就绪，他正在等待与他的永久家庭相匹配。 他在2个月大的时候来到新生命之家，有轻微心脏问题，不需要手术。 他非常小，所以开始我们认为他是早产儿。 随着年龄的增长，我们注意到即使他吃得好，他也没有达到与他年龄契合的的成长目标，甚至令一生一度以为他有某种形式的侏儒症。我们还发现即便他佩戴助听器，他的听力也不是很理想。
The past couple of months our kids have been enjoying a beautiful new playground and grassy field to play in on sunny days. This spring the weather has actually been quite nice so the kids have been spending most of their days outside exploring. We want to say thank you so much to the volunteer groups that helped in renovating the backyard!
在过去的几个月中，我们的孩子们一直在阳光明媚的日子里享受美丽的新操场和草地。 今年春天，天气实际上相当不错，所以孩子们大部分时间都在室外探索。 我们非常感谢帮助翻新后院的志愿者组织！
In a preschool class, one of the best ways for preschool kids to learn is through playtime. So each class time we spend lots of time learning through play. Some days we are playing with legos or play dough or puzzles but the kids' favorite playtime is dress-up time. The kids love getting to put on various dress-up clothes and pretend to be a doctor, waitress, policeman, astronaut, etc. It is a lot of fun but also a great way to help with their development and learning.
在学前班中，学前儿童学习的最佳方式之一就是通过游戏。 所以每个上课时间我们都花费大量的时间通过游戏来学习。 有些日子，我们正在玩乐高、玩面团或拼图，但孩子们最喜欢的游戏时间是装扮时间。 孩子们喜欢穿上各种装扮服装，假装成为医生，女服务员，警察，宇航员等。这很有趣，但也是帮助他们发展和学习的好方法。
Volunteers are welcome to come out and assist during the week with the classes. This past month one of our volunteers, April, has been leading the preschool classes. If you would like to know more about how you could get involved through volunteering in the preschool class then please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica, at
for more information.
Update on Hua YZ
Our little Hua YZ has been growing so much and recently his health has been good. Since he has been doing so well the doctors were able to perform the surgery to reverse his colostomy. He is currently in the hospital recovering from this surgery and the doctors say he is doing really well. Even though he just had surgery he is still smiling and making silly faces at his caregiver. What a difference from a year ago when he was so sick!
We are so thankful for everyone who has helped and continues to help our little Hua YZ through your prayers and financial support. Thank you for being a blessing to our little Hua YZ!
我们的小华YZ一直在成长，最近他的健康状况一直很好。 由于他一直做得很好，医生们能够进行手术来改善他的结肠造口。 目前他正在医院从这次手术中恢复过来，医生说他表现得很好。 尽管他刚刚做了手术，但他仍然面带微笑，并在他的照顾者面前做出搞笑的表情。 与一年前他生病时相比，真的非常不一样！
Our little Liang XY was born with club feet. He has already had surgery to help correct his feet but we just found out that he is going to need 4 more sets of casts for his feet. The total cost is expected to be around 8,000RMB (approximately $786 USD). Please consider helping our little Liang XY by donating towards this medical expense.
我们的小宝宝梁XY天生畸形足。 他已经进行了手术以帮助矫正他的脚，但我们发现他需要4套脚套。 预计总成本约为8,000人民币（约合786美元）。 请考虑通过捐赠医疗费用帮助我们的小宝宝梁xy。
