We want to take a moment to let you know how thankful we are for having you partner with us to make a difference in the children's lives. This past year has been difficult for the children and staff in China. There have been many lock downs due to COVID- for the last couple of months the orphanages where we have programs have been shut, meaning staff must stay on site and can't go home. Then last week all our Beijing staff were locked down in their apartment complexes and the office building was locked.

Despite these trying times good things continue to happen.
We are thankful all the children and staff have stayed healthy in 2022.

The Savannah (21 children) and Little Deer (12 children) projects continue to do well.
We were able to start a foster family project where the Savannah project is located placing nine children into families.
Five children in the Emerald project had to return to the orphanage due to COVID. A couple of months later Dang Dang was able to return to his foster family but the other children are still at the orphanage.
The Eleos Project helping children in desperate situations began. Nine children are a part of this project.
We want to be sure you know how THANKFUL we are.
Feeling gratitude and
not expressing it is like
wrapping a present and
not giving it.
