To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes
Wendy C. from Show Hope arrived in Beijing this month to accompany baby Bryant to Israel for heart surgery. After a full assessment there, the surgeons decided that they would be doing him a disfavor by trying to correct his complex heart condition. We are thankful for the doctors there, such as Dr. Aki Tamir, Head of Pediatric Cardiology (pictured below) who gave of their time and expertise to assess Bryant’s condition. Our only hope for him now is a family who would be willing to adopt him with all of his medical issues. We are trying hard to advocate for this and hope that it will happen as soon as possible. Please keep him in your prayers as we trust God for His will in Bryant’s life.
 
 

This month we had the pleasure of a return visit from Dr. and Mrs. Lim. The Lim's are faithful friends of Hope and always willing to step in when extra help is needed. They spent a week with us in Beijing followed by a week at Maria’s Big House of Hope in Luoyang.
 
We also had the pleasure of hosting a group of high school students from Dulwich College Beijing who stayed with us for a few days this month. In addition to playing with the children, they helped clean the preschool room, washed all of the kids’ outdoor toys and play equipment, pulled weeds, and painted mobiles for the babies’ nurseries.
 
 

Five ladies from the US, led by Laura Pelley, spent time here in our home in Beijing as well as MBHOH in Luoyang. They played with the children and helped with scrapbooks during their visit. In addition to their group, we had two Show Hope teams visit MBHOH this month.
    
Lastly, this month we welcomed three new volunteers who will stay with us for varying lengths of time through December. Stephanie H. and Emily K. are from the US and Alison S. is from England.

Our Thanks
 
A big thank you to all those keen golfers from the BBOIGT (Beijing Oil and Gas institute) who not only had a great golf tournament but also raised over RMB 50,000 for the foster home.
 
Thanks also go to those who responded to our appeal for the new unit in Nan Yang, especially A & J who sponsored one of the children’s rooms. We really do appreciate all the support that everyone gives us.
 
Lastly, we’d like to thank one of our faithful supporters, Sylvia Huxtable, who even though she is in her 70’s is still willing to go to Hong Kong to look after our babies while they are having surgery. During this trip she will be there for over 2 months.
 
Our Needs
 
As colder weather is drawing near we will again be buying coal for this winter. It will cost around $15,000 USD. If you would like to help with this, it would be appreciated so much.
 
We are still in need of general donations towards the running cost of our Beijing unit (approx. $75,000 USD/month).
 
Nan Yang
 
The renovations are well underway in our new Nan Yang unit; we hope to open in December. This unit still needs rooms to be sponsored. As of now, we have one family who has sponsored one of the children’s rooms, but we do need to have more rooms sponsored to finish the project. Please e-mail robin@hopefosterhome.com for more details.
