Sponsor a child?
We sponsor the foster care of a little boy from Maddy's orphanage in QinZhou, Guangxi, China. We get quarterly reports and pictures of him and it's something we always look forward to. The cost is pretty minor -- especially considering how far those dollars go and how much foster care affects every single minute of a child's life (as opposed to living in an orphanage).
The family portrait pictured here is of the family who sponsored Maddy when she was in foster care in 2005/2006. They also adopted a little girl from QinZhou. It wasn't just their dollars that touched Maddy's life. This family is part of her history and she'll, someday, understand how significant a role they played in her happiness.
There are a few kids from Maddy's SWI who don't have sponsors. If you're interested in helping (tax deductable, of course), here's a link to see their pictures: https://www.grace-hope.org/(cqxuajar25kj3l45tozb0eq2)/Waiting.aspx?OrphanageID=9. If you decide to sponsor a family, please post a little comment so I'll know this blog post made a difference.
