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 18 fully sponsored babies, 3 partially sponsored, and another 8 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:

Learning and Physical Therapy Center Updates
Thank you to everyone who came out on October 14th to celebrate the opening of our new Learning and Therapy Center! The weather was beautiful allowing us to enjoy a fun time with food, carnival games, live music and performances, and a bouncy house! We want to say a special thank you to all the sponsors and volunteers who helped to make this day possible--Thank you!

We are happy to introduce the newest and smallest member of the SHH family...Liang XY! Medical condition: club feet and syndrome.
Update on Hua YZ
Hua YZ 的近况
Our little miracle baby, Hua YZ, continues to be a miracle. Since coming Home from the hospital in July he has been doing well and not had to be readmitted. He has started to be pretty active...always kicking his little legs to make his bed rock or making silly faces and sounds at his caregiver. Recently, he has been a little sick and had to go to the doctor but fortunately we have been able to treat the problem at Home. If he continues to do well and gains a little more weight then the doctors plan to do another surgery so he won't need the colostomy bag. We would appreciate your continued prayers for our little Hua YZ!
我们的小奇迹宝贝Hua YZ依然是一个奇迹。 自从七月份回到医院回家以来，他一直做得很好，适应得很顺利。 他已经开始相当活跃了...总是踢他的小腿，在他的床上摇滚，或在对他的照顾者做出搞笑的面孔和声音。 最近，他有点生病，不得不去看医生，幸好我们已经能够在家看病了。 如果他能维持正常，体重增加一点，那么医生打算再做一次手术，所以他不需要结肠袋。 我们非常感恩你们继续为我们的小Hua YZ祈祷！
Urgent Medical Need
We recently found out that to help correct our little Liang XY's club feet before he has surgery he is going to need to have casts put on his legs every week for 8 weeks. Each time they cast his legs it will cost 3,000 RMB (approximately $452 USD). Please consider helping us with this medical expense and contact Aaron at email@example.com for more information.
我们最近发现，在手术之前，为了帮助纠正我们的小Liang XY的脚，他持续8周都需要每周把脚放在他的腿上。 每次他的腿都会花费3000元人民币（约合452美元）。 请考虑帮助我们这个医疗费用，并联系Aaron at firstname.lastname@example.org了解更多信息。

He is able to say a few simple words in English like "bye-bye" and "mama". He loves to give hugs and blow kisses. Dang TL is a great eater, and is growing well. Think you might be his Forever Family?

We are so excited that our little Liang HY has found his Forever Family but we are sure going to miss hearing him greet everyone with a "hey!"
Liang HY 已经找到了他的永久家庭，我们对此非常激动！然而也确信我们将十分想念他总是对每个人大声的问候"嘿！"！
We found out that our little Shang XR's hearing is not good. The doctors have told us he needs hearing aids so we are starting to raise the money for them now. The hearing aids will cost 40,000 RMB (approximately $6020 USD).
We raised about a fourth of this after last month's newsletter so we are still needing around 30,000 RMB (approximately $4524 USD). If you would be interested in helping us give Shang XR the gift of hearing please contact us at
In October, we had the privilege of having a dentist and his assistant visit the Home. While he was here he provided free dental screenings, fluoride treatments, and dental work for the older children and caregivers. He also spent some time teaching the caregivers about oral health. We are so thankful for these volunteers who were willing to use their professional skills to help the Home.
十月份，我们有幸有一位牙医和他的助手访问了新生命之家。 当他在这里时，他为较大的儿童和护理人员提供免费的牙科筛查，氟化物治疗和牙科工作。 他还花了一些时间教导护理人员关于口腔健康。 我们非常感谢那些愿意用自己的专业技能帮助新生命之家的志愿者。
Our first month in our new Learning and Therapy Center has been so great for our preschool kids. This month they learned about body parts and the five senses as well as continuing to practice shapes and colors. One of their favorite preschool centers is dress up clothes. They all love dressing up in different role-play costumes and playing pretend!
我们新的学习&理疗中心的第一个月，对于我们的学龄前儿童来说非常棒。 这个月他们了解身体部位和五种感官，并且继续练习形状和颜色。 他们最喜欢的学前班中心的是服饰装扮。 他们都喜欢穿着不同的角色扮演服装，然后假装自己就是他们！
