The Season of Giving

The season of giving is upon us. It's that wonderful time of year when family becomes priority (if it isn't all year) and children light up with the magic of the holidays. We have already seen so much generosity with the Santa Stops in China Campaign. We have $845 to buy gifts for the children of Bao an and Shenzhen orphanages! But truly the greatest gift anyone can give an orphan is that of family. 16 of the children in our Hope Journey II program will receive that wonderful gift of a forever family. As of right now, that leaves 19 children who will watch their friends leave with families to start a new life. All children deserve families. If only there was a magic wand that could grant that wish for every orphan who wanted it! Instead we'll have to search far and wide to find the other end of that red thread for each child. If you have a place for these orphans in your heart, please help us find their families.

If you're thinking of adopting, don't wait until the new year! Take a break from the business of the holiday season and pursue those dreams! ASIA will be raising our fees very slightly in the new year, so if you want to save a little, apply now. Take one step closer to helping your dreams come true, as well as a child's dream of a forever family. Happy Holidays!
