We’ve seen how our assistance is indeed vital to saving the lives of vulnerable children in China’s orphanages. Because we have access to Beijing’s top specialists and hospitals, have a network of staff and systems to safely transport children to these resources, and are able to provide the specialized care that these children need, we are able to provide healing and hope for a healthy future. But we also recognize that meeting each child’s emotional needs and becoming the family that they have lost is every bit as important as resolving their medical issues. We’re privileged to be able to provide both for X.
