I became involved with An Orphan's Wish last year and I cannot say enough good things about this organization. The professionalism they exhibit in everything they do is truly impressive. Their work is truly life saving and life changing for children in China who without them would have no voice, no advocates, no champions. Not only does An Orphan's Wish provide for the medical needs of the children in their care, they also provide them with an education and shower them with love and kindness. The smiles and the light in the children's eyes at the House of Love is the best testament to the quality of the care they receive. I sponsor a child at An Orphan's Wish and I appreciate that they strive to be good stewards for every donation received. I love receiving the newsletter and updates about my sponsored child. You really get a sense that your part of something big and special at An Orphan's Wish.
I Love the heart of An Orphan's wish. They provide love and care to children who may never know the love of a family. They help with the basic necessities of life for these children. I had the privilege of transporting three large boxes of items to China for this great non-profit!
I trust their leadership and believe their funds are used with the utmost discretion kelly rumbaugh mom to many adopted children from China
An Orphan's Wish does amazing things for many children who may otherwise not have a voice. THey help these children with medical care and provide them with love. They are a wonderful organization!
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!
I got involved with An Orphan's Wish about 2 years ago through sponsoring a child. Since then, I have sponsored several more and love receiving the monthly updates on the children! They always look very happy, well-cared for and loved. This is truly a wonderful organization that cares deeply about these children. Because I have adopted a cleft-affected child, I am drawn to sponsoring those children affected the same way. AOW allows you to choose the child you would like to sponsor and also provides ways to give direct donations to purchase necessities. About a year ago, I began volunteering my time for AOW to help spread the word and am so glad I did! AOW is making the difference in lives of children and I'm happy to be a small part of that.
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.
An Orphan's WIsh is a fabulous organization! I know first hand the work they do in China! We adopted our son 6 months ago and he was cared for by An Orphan's Wish. He is the most well adjusted, wonderful child! All of this due to the love and care he got from this organization. Without a doubt, they touch the lives of so many children, who without their assistance, would long be forgotten. Thank you An Orphan's Wish!
My daughter was helped by An Orphan's Wish. The people in China raised funds to help her get life saving heart surgery. Great organization and helps so many children get the love and care they deserve!
An Orphans Wish is a fabulous organization. These children are able to receive individual care for their special need. An Orphans Wish is about the children and is for the love of the children. Through the newsletters and social media you are able to see these children literally blossom before your eyes.
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.
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.
