Dear Friends and Supporters,
Autumn is here and we are loving the cooler weather we've had lately. The fall winds have brought us some wonderfully blue skies and we always know autumn in here when the corn is being harvested on the streets in our nearby villages.
Dr. Joyce, Dr. Steve, Dr. Zhai, our PT Jessica and Becca all had the opportunity to go to Hong Kong this month to attend a Spina Bifida conference organized by our friends at MedArt. Dr. Steve was able to share at some of the sessions and our medical staff gained some valuable knowledge during the conference. The highlight of the trip though was getting to see one of our former New Hope children who has since been adopted. As a beneficiary of MedArt's wonderful work, he and his mom also attended the conference to share their story of hope.

WE LOVE BOOKS!
One of our former volunteers recently held an Usborne book fundraiser to raise funds for us and send new books for our preschool classes. The books have recently arrived with travelers and our kids are having so much fun exploring their new books in preschool. Thank you to many of you who participated in this fundraiser to provide our children with new and exciting, great quality books to read!
