To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes
Dear Friends and Supporters,
 
Hope’s Heroes

Mike and Kim Barrett are yet another amazing couple who have a deep love for special children. They have experienced the incredible joy that children with Biliary Atresia have brought to their lives. After stepping out in faith in December 2007 to adopt their first child, Sarah, whom we all thought would not live beyond the age of 2 years without a liver transplant, the Barretts are still not done. Their love for these special children goes beyond just adopting them. They want to encourage others to join them in saving more children with this condition
 
This month we were pleased to welcome again the surgical team from Geisinger Hospital in Pennsylvania. Several children received cleft lip and/or palate repairs as well as ear tubes. We are very grateful to them for their help.

Hope Healing Home Beijing

Cheyne was transferred to our Beijing center to undergo treatment for cancer of his eye. We hope that he will do well. This cancer is difficult and expensive to treat. Myeisha was also transferred to Beijing in preparation for moving her to the US for further treatment of her cancer. We are hoping for a cure.

Special Care Centers Jiaozuo, Luoyang, Xin Yang and Zhengzhou, Henan Province:.

These Centers provide humane and loving, hospice care for infants and young children with severe congenital defects who are unlikely to survive under normal circumstances. Those who survive are unexpected blessings.

Zhengzhou. ( Show Hope Special Care Center).

Sweet Yanka with Biliary Atresia passed away peacefully despite all our attempts to save her. She was loved. Yvaine passed away suddenly. Byron, Laihda, Pacey and Cheyne were admitted this month

Xinyang ( Show Hope, Open Arms and Alexandria Yeo Special Care Center).

Quinan and Harvy were admitted. Quiana passed away peacefully and Harvy was transported urgently to Luoyang for emergency surgery. Premature baby Fiona, only a few hours old was admitted but she was too small and fragile and did not make it.

Luoyang (Maria’s Big House of Hope) 

Zachary passed away suddenly. This was particular sad because his dossier was being reviewed by a family but his heart condition was complex and he was very young. Caxton, Jay, Yvaine and Taelyn passed away, loved a cared for.  7 new babies were admitted this month.

Jiaozuo ( Show Hope Special Care Center)

Murphy and Mandy were admitted and there were no deaths this month

Love Without Boundaries Heartbridge Rehabilitation Unit (18 beds) 

Lennox, Jenny and Fallon were admitted to hospital and sadly Lennox did not survive. He was faced with many hurdles from the time he was born. Jenny recovered and came home much better but she is still fragile. Fallon came home but did not survive more than a few days. New babies Heidi and Raya were admitted for post-operative care.

Our Needs

Cheyne will need expensive surgery and possible further treatment for the cancer in his left eye. We would appreciate any help towards the cost of his treatment. If anyone is able and willing to help, please send your contributions to Show Hope at this link:

Prayer Request for the month:

The babies who had heart surgery last month: Rose, Angel, Quinton, and Quesha are home with us and are doing well. Thank you for your prayers. Unfortunately Torie was deemed inoperable here in China. Her only hope is now adoption where perhaps some surgery may be able to help her. Please pray for a family willing to walk in faith with her towards whatever the future holds for her. We believe in miracles.


Torie

Our Most Sincere Thanks:

1) To Students of ISB who came for their annual spring-planting activity.
With our deepest gratitude,
Joyce and Robin Hill

“Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.”
- Henri J. M. Nouwen
