To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes
Dear Friends and Supporters,

Amongst other loving notes, flowers, messages, phone calls from my kids, staff and friends, I was sent this beautiful image that I would like to share with other mothers. Know that you are loved.


We were very pleased to be part of the beautiful wedding of Mike and Rebecca Shook that took place in our garden amongst the spring blossoms. Mike and Rebecca have worked with us and Show Hope for many years. It was a very special day for all of us.


Hope’s Heroes

Love Without Boundaries entrusted little Kylie Grace to our care after her surgery, when she was only one month old, weighing less than a newborn baby. In Africa they say “it takes a village to raise a child”. In our work here, it seems like it takes a village to “save” a child.  The Holmes family opened their home and their hearts to this beautiful little girl who began life as a child in great need.

Several children received surgeries this month, some of them for serious conditions. After much anxiety involved in trying to protect Myeisha from chickenpox which has been spreading through many orphanages around the country, we were finally able to get her on a flight to the US for further treatment for her cancer. Myeisha had undergone several rounds of chemotherapy so she was very vulnerable to any infections which could cause devastating complications. At least she is now in a safe place where her complex medical needs will be met. Maya was sent to Hong Kong for surgery. She has to undergo 3 surgeries. We are again grateful to MedArt for their help and for faithful Sylvia who came all the way from the UK to care for her. Mandy was sent to Suzhou for neurosurgery with Dr Yu of MedArt who also operated on Lahida whom we sent earlier. Laurence and Zoren had bowel surgery and Violet went to Hangzhou for urgent heart surgery and GL Zhong, Leah and Elimelech  were admitted for heart surgery in Beijing. Bric was sent urgently to Jinan for liver surgery. Lily-Mae was admitted to hospital for cleft lip surgery and she looks beautiful.

Confirmed Adoptions and our Hopes for adoption:

Laney and Warren were adopted this month and will be in the same family. This amazing family is one of those very special people who adopt children with very high special needs. We were told that William and Damien have been adopted and twins Clint and Clark have also found their Forever Family. Clint and Clark have been in our care since they were 4 months old. Julio and Gavin were also picked up by their loving families.
