I started out as one of the first volunteers for An Orphan's Wish. I can not say enough WONDERFUL things about An Orphan's Wish!! The care these children receive is above and beyond anything you would imagine! Most of all .........these children are LOVED!!! I am a proud sponsor of Rylie. I was also given the privilege of assigning her a name. Such a sweet little girl! I love watching her grow and thrive under the care of An Orphan's Wish!
Our family is a child sponsor for AOW. We sponsor Gregory! With monthly updates, we to see how much Gregory has changed since he was placed in AOW home. He has a smile on his face that is worth a million dollars and he knows that he is loved by the nannies at AOW. We know first hand what it is like to adopt a child that doesn't know what love is ... thank goodness Gregory and all the kids at AWO know they are loved. Our little that didn't have a clue to what love is ... well she knows now and is the most loving child in our family. Thank you to An Orphan's Wish for making a difference in the life's of orphans!
In 2000, a love for China began to stir in my heart after visiting the country. The people, the history, the culture, the food and also the needs for orphans, specifically. When a friend introduced me to "An Orphan's Wish" in 2011 I was grateful to have the opportunity to become a sponsor. The website is so user friendly and you'll fall in love with each child who comes across your screen. They will greatly benefit from your support. I highly recommend An Orphan's WIsh, should you consider sponsoring, donating, or sharing their story with others. I always look forward to receiving regular updates on my sponsored children, absolutely precious! Should you become a sponsor, you will too! So grateful for AOW!
Thank you so much for that wonderful comment, Kristen! None of the world could be done without the support of generous sponsors like you. We are grateful for your trust.
Our second daughter lived at the House of Love in the city of Guilin for several months before we adopted her and we are so thankful for the care she received. We were prepared for the possiblity of delays due to institutionalization, but we could tell right away how well she was cared for as she was developmentally right on track. I was also amazed at how well the staff prepared her for the transition to our family and how easily it went for her.
We were able to meet some of her carers briefly afterward and it was so touching to see them hold her one last time smiling, talking and even singing with her.
We have since been sponsoring one of her former playmates through An Orphan's Wish and can see the wonderful progress he has made too.
My two youngest children out of 6 are adopted from China. At the time of our adoption and since returning this summer for a visit to their respective orphanages, I have been deeply impacted by the ongoing need of the orphans that remain, waiting and hoping for their forever families. An Orphans Wish is a wonderful organization that allows me to respond to those feelings of wanting to help those needy children with care through the organization and to hopefully facilitate the children to meet up with their forever families.
