A Family for Henry

Meet Henry, a tiny preemie from Pingdingshan, Henan province. Imagine what a difference the love of a family could make in his life. We hear he loves to smile - and we'd LOVE to put a big one on his face.

This holiday season, we are offering the opportunity to help us sponsor Henry as an online community, and to allow or supporters to celebrate their own loved ones in the process. For every $10 donation you make to our ChipIn campaign for Henry, you may email, share on Facebook, or download and print a holiday card to share with the special people in your life. Wouldn't it be an amazing thing to be able to follow Henry's progress for a year because of what we did together this Christmas? Please consider joining us in this effort!

Meet Faith. Like Grant, Faith is from Hefei in Anhui. A bright, involved nine year old, she attends public school in the community where her foster family lives. She is in grade 2, and gets along well with her peers. She loves having friends over to her home to play, and also loves to spend time with her foster brother. Thanks to her Grace & Hope sponsor, Faith is able to experience the extraordinary gift of an ordinary family life.

Program Spotlight : Guilin

Guilin, in Guangxi province, is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. It is also home to one of Grace & Hope's larger foster care programs, with 65 children currently under its care. These children are able to learn what life in a family is really about (while they wait, hopefully, for a permanent family of their very own). We thought we'd share just a few of those beautiful faces with you today.
We also have one precious little one we would love to add to our Guilin Program - please click HERE to 'meet' Sue. We would love to find her a sponsor family before Christmas!

Jack is a precious four month old baby boy in Pingdingshan in Henan province. He has CP, and is waiting for a sponsor to be moved into a foster family. Jack responds and plays with his caregivers, so we just know he will thrive given the opportunity to experience the love and care of a foster family. Please consider sponsoring Jack, or sharing his page with someone else who would be interested.

Sunday Sponsorship Snapshot

Meet Grant.
Grant is a young man from Hefei. When our Grace & Hope staff visited with him in October, he was so excited to show off the ducks and the dog he is helping to raise. He enjoys helping to take care of his younger foster brothers and visiting with his friends.
Grant obviously loves being part of his foster family. If you are interested in helping another child experience the love and life of a family, check out the list of children we have currently waiting for sponsors!

And a Child Will Lead...

A couple of months ago, Grace & Hope was approached by Narissa, who wanted to raise funds to help sponsor a child in foster care in Qinzhou, Guangxi, because she too had been in foster care there. She is now running a fundraiser to benefit Grace & Hope for JUST that purpose. You can read more about Narissa at her blog. How awesome is that? If you can help Narissa meet her goal, click the ChipIn link below. Thank you, Narissa, for your generous heart!

Meet Poppy

Nine months ago, Poppy, from Hubei Provice, was featured on our Facebook page as a little one in need of a sponsor. This photo looked out at each of us, and within a DAY she had found a sponsor, and was on her way to finding out what a gift a family can be. We are so excited to share these updated photos of sweet Poppy. Isn't she adorable? And how wonderful is it to see her holding the hand of someone who loves her.
Check out our website to see children who are waiting to have their lives changed, just as Poppy's has been!
