AN ORPHANS WISH Reviews
An Orphans Wish supports a foster home in China for medically-challenged orphans, some of whom are adoptable, most of whom are not. The directors and caregivers in that home provide the things that these orphans would absolutely not receive elsewhere -- the notion that each of these precious lives has VALUE, love, and care on a level that we'd expect for our OWN children.
My child lived at that foster home before he became my son. After bracing myself for the effects of institutionalization, imagine my unspeakable joy at - instead - finding that my son did indeed have (what he considered) "parents" and "siblings" at that home, and a well-developed innate sense of belonging and trust. The people who run the foster home supported by An Orphans Wish are true servants and have devoted their lives to creating hope and a future for "the least of these" in China.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
On the Board, seeing 98% of all funds go directly toward caring for the orphans. As a mother of a adopted child who was cared for at House of Love, witnessing the profound effects that love and care and attention have on an institutionalized child - by supporting that foster home for medically challenged orphans, An Orphans Wish literally changed my child's future, molded his own abilities to love and to trust and to understand the concept of 'family'.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
This isn't a true change, but rather a continuation of the vision that An Orphans Wish already has... that is, continue to increase awareness so that funds are available to put programs in place for the older, unadopted children in foster care who 'age out' in their early teens... ie, life skills training, job creation, etc.
