I'm a college student and a big sister to two children adopted from China. Upon entering Tufts University, I joined Tufts China Care Club, a student organization under Half the Sky that fundraises for HTS's children who need surgeries. HTS brings the babies to Beijing to receive top-notch medical care and recover in their China Care Home. I myself am majoring in Child Development and hope to work in adoption in the future. Seeing how effective HTS programs are fills me with hope for the future of the orphans of the world. HTS not only works with individual orphanages in China, but has been so successful that the Chinese government is using its influence to bring HTS-designed programs to every state orphanage in China. I also have read some of the academic papers published by the HTS staff who have used their extensive professional experience to design the kinds of education and nurturance methods which, I expect, have never been seen in China before. I could not be happier that shortly after my little sister was adopted from China, HTS began programs in her own orphanage.
