Beyond the Placement – Adoption Grants
Children need a home and the most vulnerable children deserve the love and protection a parent provides. Many of the children currently available through international adoption are older or special needs children. They are orphaned children, some with severe needs such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy or mental impairment, who desperately need the love and care only a family can provide. These children are waiting for the right family to come forward. With your support we can provide grants to help families reduce the financial barriers and find a waiting child a home. When making a donation to help find a waiting child a home, indicate Beyond the Placement on the donation form. Make a donation to Beyond the Placement or if you would prefer to send a gift by mail, download the form here.
Beyond the Placement – Post Adoptions Services
We believe every adoptee who wishes to find the missing pieces of their history has a right to do so. It is part of their identity. It shapes how they view themselves as they emerge into adulthood. New Beginnings spends countless hours assisting adoptees in their searches for the missing pieces of their childhood. We would like to keep this service free of charge. When making a donation to help adult adoptees explore their heritage and personal history, indicate Beyond the Placement on the donation.

Eastern Social Welfare Society
So Many or our Friends and Families have been blessed by the wonderful work of Eastern Social Welfare Society. We have four programs that need your support:
400 Bottles a Day – Minji, only a week old, is eagerly drinking formula from a bottle while cradled in the arms of a volunteer worker for ESWS. For Minji and the 50 babies entrusted to us, ESWS uses 400 bottles every day to properly care for the 50 babies entrusted to its care. These bottles must be boiled after each feeding to comply with proper hygienic standards. As a result, these bottles become discolored and start to break down after 3 months. We always want to ensure that we have the required amount of baby bottles. With your support, ESWS will be able to provide clean and pure nourishment for our babies, without the worry of spreading germs or viruses among them.
Disability Services. – The Rehabilitation Service for Disabled Children helps create a stable living environment for children struggling due to their disability. At the same time, the Center helps the children fully integrate into society through various methods such as providing children with education and activities that help enrich the everyday lives of these children. Your support to the Dongbang Children’s Rehabilitation Center will go to help these child and the other clients served at the center.
Support the Care for Babies – Approximately 30% of waiting children have medical problems that need special attention and many are in need of medical care. The Eastern Social Welfare Society takes care of many babies in dire need of medical help. Additionally, newborn babies must have regular check-ups, shots, and treatments. Sometimes, even hospitalization is necessary. We need nurses who can take care of children around the clock. Medical treatments cost thousands of dollars each month. Please consider helping ESWS and these children.
Single Mother Support. – When possible, a child should be raised and loved by his or her mother. Eastern is making this possible through its help and support of Single Mothers to meet the challenges of parenting through job training, counseling and group homes. You help can keep a family united.
Pattaya Orphanage – This orphanage provides outstanding care, education and love to over 200 Thai children. They also run a School for the Deaf which provides pre-school education the children need to qualify for entrance to the government-sponsored school for the deaf. Since the school opened in 1983, more than 260 deaf students have graduated. Your donations will allow them to continue their important work for the children, many of whom will remain in the orphanage until adulthood. When making a donation through New Beginnings to the benefit of the Pattaya Orphanage in Thailand, please indicate Pattaya on the donation. Make a donation to Pattaya Orphanage.
Red Cross Children’s Home – The Thai Red Cross Children’s Home was established under Her Royal Highness’s initiative on September 17, 1981. The Children’s Home provides infant care, health care and education, to abandoned babies and children. The Children’s Home cares for up to 50 Thai children. Your donations will allow them to continue their important work for the children, many of whom will remain in the orphanage until adulthood.
