Dear Adoptive families and friends,
Eight children from China were living with complicated medical needs or challenging diagnoses. They were learning to live life with physical limitations and medical challenges associated with conditions such as hydrocephalus, Down Syndrome and psychomotor disorders. The most challenging aspect is these eight children were living without the unconditional love and support of a family. They lived without the solid foundation a loving family provides; they lived without a sense of trust in the world around them and a hope for a better life. In 2017, we are proud to say that these eight children were adopted through our agency into loving homes. Because of the generous support of our friends and families, New Beginnings provided more than $40,000 in grants to help families’ better care for these children. They are all now receiving the best medical care, and the emotional support they deserve.
For over 32 years, New Beginnings has brought thousands of orphaned children to their forever families. In addition to placing special needs children from China, we also place orphaned children from Korea, Thailand, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, among others. We are committed to our mission to find orphaned and displaced children permanent loving homes through our quality and compassionate social services.
You have seen firsthand the impact that adoption has on children and families. You have a chance to make a difference in a child’s life by donating to our New Beginnings Annual Appeal. Your financial contribution will provide families with grants to adopt special needs children to help reduce the financial burden of caring for a child with medical needs and to reduce the cost of adoption. Through your support, we have given over $40,000 to families adopting special needs or waiting child. We want to continue this in 2018.
Together, we can continue to give loving homes to orphans. Here’s how you can donate:
