March 2017 Newsletter

Posted by on Apr 1, 2017 in News | 0 comments

Dear Friends and Supporters, March has been a busy month here at New Hope! We’ve welcomed new children, new volunteers and several guests and visitors all throughout the month. All the while, our children have been keeping busy making great use of our playground now that spring time is here. We are very grateful this month for a large donation from our friend Carina Lau from Hong Kong. This donation was very timely as it came the same week as we were asked to take in 6 children from another home in Beijing which temporarily had to close. These admissions brought our bed number in Beijing from 48 back up to 54. Despite this very generous donation, we do have some other pressing needs that have come as a bit of a surprise this month. The first is for medical support for Charlotte, a little 3-year-old girl admitted to MBHOH in Luoyang in February of this year, then transferred to our Beijing home. Charlotte has a liver condition which will mean that she needs a liver transplant as soon as a suitable match is found. At the moment she is in Tianjin Hospital awaiting that transplant. Please keep Charlotte in your prayers, that she would remain well as she waits. The cost for the transplant and follow up treatment will be in the region of US $40,000. We really would appreciate any support you can give towards these costs.  Charlotte with her Ayi The second need we have is for a new heating unit for our Shunyi home. The government has recently banned the use of coal in Beijing to control pollution in the area. This means we have to replace our existing coal boiler with a new gas-fired one. We have obtained quotations for the new boiler and we need US $45,000 to cover the cost. Again any help towards this would be really appreciated. With Love and Gratitude, Robin, Joyce and the New Hope Staff “Above all else, know this: Be prepared at all times for the gifts of God and be ready always for new ones. For God is a thousand times more ready to give than we are to receive.” Meister Eckhart The annual Cook-for-Hope Charity Sale is underway! Please check out their website for more info: www.meipian.cn/fbrb7ue This month: 12 new children were admitted into our care 5 children were adopted 29 children were hospitalized or had surgery 2 children passed away A Few More Thanks to Give… As we mentioned above, March was full of visits and groups here at New Hope. Much to the children’s excitement, Dr. Mark Chan from MedArt visited us this month. Many of the children knew him from Hong Kong where they had surgery and where he was their pediatrician. Dr. Chan has assisted our work for a very long time, and we are so thankful for him. Dr. Chan with the Hills, Dr. Steve and many of the children he has helped through MedArt We are also very happy to have welcomed 3 volunteers this month. Ananya, from Singapore, who was here last spring has returned for a month during her spring break from University. We’ve also welcomed Mike, from the USA, who will be with us for a little over a month. Lastly Kelsi, also from...

February 2017 Newsletter

    To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes    February 2017 Dear Friends and Supporters, After a busy few months of holidays, February has been a pretty quiet and uneventful month here at Hope Foster Home. We had an unexpected snow but are now enjoying the slowly rising temps and increasingly longer days. The children, although still bundled up from head to toe, are getting to spend more time outside playing on the playground and going for walks with their nannies in the village. Winters here in Beijing can be very dreary, so it always brings us a renewed sense of joy and hope to see signs of spring appearing. Our preschoolers enjoyed getting to celebrate Valentine’s this month and learned about hearts and the colors pink and purple. On Valentine’s Day they made special hearts for their nannies and presented the hearts to them after class. Many of them also learned how to say “I love you” and it was so sweet to see the looks on the nannies’ faces when they were approached with a hand-made heart and sweet “I love you” from their little ones! Elizabeth-Stephanie and Ray share Valentines with their Nannies Thank you all for your continued support and partnership; it is what makes opportunities like these possible for our children! With Love and Gratitude, Robin, Joyce and the New Hope Staff “To love another person is to see the face of God”Victor Hugo This month: 9 new children were admitted into our care 6 children were adopted 8 children were hospitalized or had surgery 3 children passed away Baby News and Movements from Beijing’s Hope Healing Home Braden went to Hong Kong for extensive testing with MedArt.  We are thankful he had that opportunity and for our volunteer Annie who did a great job taking care of him.  Maegan needed to be hospitalized, but she improved and is now doing better.  Kenzli went for her usual testing in Tianjin. Kale and Art are still in Hong Kong and we are very grateful for the loving care they are receiving from the MedArt staff and from our volunteer caretakers and nurses. Please pray for their healing and recovery. News from our Henan Special Care Centers Chaulteax, Hannah, Mitchell, Shannen, Tanya, and Yuma were adopted this month!

January 2017 Newsletter

Posted by on Feb 1, 2017 in News | 0 comments

Dear Friends and Supporters, As we write this newsletter, we are in the midst of Chinese New Year celebrations here in China. As most of you likely know, celebrating Chinese New Year in China is the equivalent of celebrating Christmas in most Western countries. This year we welcome the Year of the Rooster. We are very grateful for yet another year to continue the work God is allowing us to do here. As you can see from the photos in the sidebar, our preschoolers have been getting in on the fun and learning a lot about this special Chinese holiday. We really want to thank all of you that regularly donate to the work we do here in China. You enable us to make an amazing difference in the lives of the little ones that God entrusts us with. You may have heard that there are new laws in China that affect all non-government organizations (NGO’s) working here. We are really excited to tell you that New Hope Foundation was among the first NGO’s to be officially registered under the new laws 2 weeks ago. Praise God! He seems to want us to be here for some time to come. God has provided for this work amazingly over the last 18 years and as we go into the New Year we look forward to the plans that He has for us. Financial support for the Henan care centers and also our Beijing center is still needed for us to continue looking after the babies in our care; we ask you to respond from your hearts as to how this may apply to you. This month, we’ve welcomed two volunteers who will be with us for two months. Annie was with us this same time last year during her winter break from Dartmouth College. We are very glad to have her back. We are also very pleased to have her classmate Jessica also here helping us. In addition to helping with our preschool classes, Jessica has already accompanied two children, Art and Leaf, to Hong Kong this month.  Jessica & Annie Earlier this month our Medical Director, Dr. Steve, sent a very touching message of hope to our staff. As we reflect on the past year and welcome a new one, we wanted to also share this wonderful message of hope with you: Years ago we lost a little girl soon after her heart surgery. Her name was Metta, and she was such a beautiful girl.  She had Down syndrome and a heart problem. We had another girl named Nathalie with Down syndrome from the same orphanage and with the same kind of condition affecting her heart. Nathalie had survived her heart surgery, so we had expected Metta to do well at the same hospital. That hospital was and still is one of the best in the country for that type of defect. But when Metta died, we were suddenly and profoundly reminded of the tenuous hold we have on life and the complexity of these children’s medical needs. Nathalie stayed with us longer and longer as we hoped for her to go for adoption. Families wanted her, but for some reason she stayed with us. Then separately another little girl named Jessica-Hope came with three significant medical complications that in the...

December 2016 Newsletter

Dear Friends and Supporters, We hope you and your families all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas. We want to also take this time to wish you a very Happy New Year! This month was busy and bustling around our home as we welcomed many groups and visitors who brought gifts and donations to the children for Christmas. Among the groups that visited, we were happy to welcome once more a small group from Beijing International Christian Fellowship (BICF). Led by Ka yan, this group comes each year at the beginning of December to decorate our home for the holidays.     We were also very happy to host a small group of students from the International School of Beijing (ISB) who came and put on a short Christmas concert for our children. A new volunteer from Australia, Alicia, joined our New Hope family during the month of December. Alicia will be with us until early January and has been a wonderful help with our preschool classes. This Christmas was really special for us as we were able to spend time with a few of our family members. Our son Adam came with his wife Asami and their two children, Christopher and baby Anna. Our daughter Ruth was also with us, as well as our daughter-in-law Karen (wife of our son Aron) and their two daughters, Maya and Georgia. We also celebrated Maya’s 11th birthday on Christmas day. We would like to announce that our son Adam’s television show, Destination Flavour, was awarded Australia’s Best Lifestyle Television Program at the AACTA (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts) this year. Adam, a lawyer, won the Australian MasterChef competition in 2010 and he was also appointed the “Japanese Goodwill Ambassador for Japanese Cuisine” in July earlier this year. He is also an Ambassador for UNICEF. Rob and I are very proud of his achievements as well as the achievements of all our children in their chosen professions. Happy New Year! Robin, Joyce and the New Hope Staff “It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you….Yes it is Christmas every time you smile at your brother and offer him your hand.” Mother Teresa This month: 10 new children were admitted into our care 6 children were adopted 14 children were hospitalized or had surgery 3 children passed away In 2016: 120 new children were admitted into our care 70 children were adopted 221 children were hospitalized or had surgery 35 children passed away 435 total number of children cared for this year Baby News and Movements from Beijing’s Hope Healing Home We are very pleased that Annie and Steven were adopted this month!    News from our Henan Special Care Centers Blessing, Kayne, Rose and Ziggy were all adopted this month!      Please visit our Prayer List throughout the month for updates on prayer needs for our children Travelers Needed We are in need of travelers from the US, UK and Australia to Beijing to help bring in much needed supplies for our children.

November 2016 Newsletter

Posted by on Dec 2, 2016 in News | 0 comments

To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes    Dear Friends and Supporters, It may not be Christmas just yet, but it’s definitely feeling a lot like winter as Beijing had its first beautiful winter snowfall this month.   On the heels of this Thanksgiving season, we are very grateful this month for the wonderful response we had to last month’s newsletter. We’ve had many of our faithful supporters thinking of creative ways in which they can help raise additional funds for us, including covering costs for immunizations and for this winter’s coal costs to keep our children and staff warm. We do have so many things to be thankful for this month. We’re especially thankful for our friends in Hong Kong. The owner of Roger Vivier HK organized a fundraising day and gave us a very generous donation; as a part of this, Carina Lau, a very famous singer and actress in Hong Kong made two extremely generous donations to the Beijing running costs. This donation means that we can reopen 3 beds that were closed earlier this year in Beijing. In addition, we will not have to return 4 children (who have had all needed surgeries and are now healthy) back to their orphanages to make room for sicker babies. We are also grateful for our friend Gek Tan who started Love for Orphans in Beijing. Although she recently moved back to Singapore, she has been visiting Beijing for a few days and has brought many of her friends who have donated diapers and lots of rice to help with supplies for Beijing.     Gek and Love for Orphans volunteers helping with this month’s birthday celebration 150 bags of rice… 5 months worth of rice! We are also really happy to let you all know that we have been able to help another foster home in Nanjing. The director there, Linda Huang, approached us for medical advice a few months ago. She cares for 12 babies in her Nanjing Rainbow Center; the needs of the children she cares for are very similar to those cared for in our existing Special Care Centers. She also reaches out to local families who are caring for babies with severe disabilities in Nanjing. We have signed an agreement with her to put one of our nurses in Nanjing. The Nanjing Rainbow Center will come under the existing system that is in place for our existing medical care and Dr. Martin will oversee all treatment plans there. It is really good to be able to help in this way. NHF Beijing will cover costs of the nurse working there and her expenses. On a personal note, Joyce and Robin would like to say a special thank you to those of you that reached out to help them with personal support. You really blessed and encouraged them tremendously. With Love and Gratitude, The NHF Team “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”   Galatians 6:9 This month: 8 new children were admitted into our care 5 children were adopted 30 children were hospitalized or had surgery 3 children passed away Rod Freeland, a NICU nurse from California, and his daughter Naomi (pictured above) were here for a few...

October 2016 Newsletter

Posted by on Nov 1, 2016 in News | 0 comments

Dear Friends and Supporters, This month, in big ways and small ways, we’ve been reminded that “it never hurts to ask.” Whether it is presenting a need to our Father through prayer or presenting a need to our faithful supporters, we’ve been very blessed to be the recipients of the kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity of many. It is in this spirit of asking that we give thanks this month and also present some current needs, in faith that God is already aware of these needs and able and willing to meet them, according to His kindness and love for His children. Some of the many acts of kindness this month… Earlier this month, Dr. Steve brought a request to our attention for some infant sleepers for our youngest babies. We put a simple request on our Facebook page and within 24 hours, we’d received replies from 15 people willing to help with this request! We received an email from a kind friend, Collette, who after organizing a bake sale for New Hope raised $300! A special thanks goes to Philip Morris for their generous donation towards the Beijing running costs this month. While in Beijing for a conference, Emily, a doctor from Hong Kong, came to our home to share her artistic talents and painted a mural in our Bouncing Bunnies wing. A group of volunteers from “Love for Orphans” has been coming to our home each Monday to read books with the children. In additon to their Monday visits, they also sent four of their volunteers to help with this month’s big birthday party.   “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” – Matthew 7:7-8 We are looking for sponsors who are willing to cover the costs of needed vaccinations for our children. The cost per child is approx. $1,000 USD. This covers 3 doses of five vaccines recommended here in China.This month as the temperatures have dropped and we head into winter, we need to start heating again. We have purchased coal for our boiler which costs $12,000 USD. The amount of coal we purchased should last us through the winter. If you would like to help cover all or a part of this, it would be really helpful. We have also been doing some ongoing maintenance work in our Beijing home (painting and repairing some water damage caused by rain leaking through the roof). The cost of these repairs has been $2,500 USD. Again, any help towards these costs would be greatly appreciated. We are still looking for donors to support the work in Henan Province in our Special Care Centers. We have decided to try and continue to care for as many babies as we can in these centers as we do have some promised support. Any additional funding will mean we can start to increase the number of babies taken into our care again. If you feel led to help with any of the above costs, please email Robin. On a personal note… For many years Joyce and I have been personally supported financially from outside foster home funding...

September 2016 Newsletter

Dear Friends and Supporters, Autumn is here and we are loving the cooler weather we’ve had lately. The fall winds have brought us some wonderfully blue skies and we always know autumn in here when the corn is being harvested on the streets in our nearby villages. Dr. Joyce, Dr. Steve, Dr. Zhai, our PT Jessica and Becca all had the opportunity to go to Hong Kong this month to attend a Spina Bifida conference organized by our friends at MedArt. Dr. Steve was able to share at some of the sessions and our medical staff gained some valuable knowledge during the conference. The highlight of the trip though was getting to see one of our former New Hope children who has since been adopted. As a beneficiary of MedArt’s wonderful work, he and his mom also attended the conference to share their story of hope. “Simeon” at New Hope, now Landon pictured with Becca, Dr. Joyce, and Dr. Steve WE LOVE BOOKS! One of our former volunteers recently held an Usborne book fundraiser to raise funds for us and send new books for our preschool classes. The books have recently arrived with travelers and our kids are having so much fun exploring their new books in preschool. Thank you to many of you who participated in this fundraiser to provide our children with new and exciting, great quality books to read! “Judson” and “Isaac” enjoying some of our new books With Love and Gratitude, The NHF Team Our staff loves to hear from families post-adoption. We have a board set up in our stroller room where we post photos of children with their forever families for their former nannies to see. We’ve recently had an idea to redecorate this area and in place of a board, we’re creating a wall of flowers with photos of children and their families. If you are the family of a former New Hope child, we’d love to add your child and family’s photo(s). Please contact Becca for more info. I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen: not because I see it but because by it, I see everything else.C.S. Lewis This month: 25 new children were admitted into our care 5 children were adopted 24 children were hospitalized or had surgery 5 children passed away Books, books, and more books!

August 2016 Newsletter

Posted by on Sep 2, 2016 in News | 0 comments

To Comfort always, to Relieve often, to Save sometimes    Dear Friends and Supporters, Summer is quickly coming to an end here in Beijing as evenings and mornings begin to cool and days get shorter. Our preschoolers (pictured above) have enjoyed a few more days of swimming before packing up swimsuits and pool toys, and we’ve just said goodbye to the last of our wonderful summer volunteers. The changing seasons often seem bittersweet as we say goodbye to many of the things we love to welcome new and exciting things. We want to say a very special thank you to all of you that responded to our last newsletter; because of the response we’ve had, we’ve been able to put a hold on reducing the number of babies that we can care for. We will be able to give more details next month, but as one large donor has offered to help us, we will be able to continue the work that we are doing in Henan much as we have in the past. God has once again shown Himself faithful in caring for the babies in our care and we are so thankful. With Love and Gratitude, Robin, Joyce and the New Hope Staff Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you are.Joshua 1:19 This month: 20 new children were admitted into our care 1 child passed away 11 children were hospitalized or had surgery 4 children were adopted Please visit our Prayer Listthroughout the month for updates on prayer needs for our children. Baby News and Movements from Hope Healing Home Kenzli returned from the hospital doing well. Ashby visited us in Beijing briefly from Hong Kong then needed to return for continuation of medical care by our friends at MedArt. He is now being wonderfully cared for at the Home of Loving Faithfulness (www.holf.org.hk) until he can go for adoption. Alectoneeded to return to his orphanage to prepare for an upcoming adoption. We welcomed Braden into our care. We are very pleased that Carson was adopted this month. Carson News from our Henan Special Care Centers We are very grateful to Dr. Chin Lim and his wife Choo who have once again come to help cover care at our Henan units. The Lims (from Australia) have been coming to help for many years and we are very thankful for their faithful love and care towards our children.

July 2016 Newsletter

Posted by on Aug 2, 2016 in News | 0 comments

(This newsletter originally appeared here.) Dear Friends and Supporters, The last few months have been a mixture of both good and not so good news. The good news is that so many of our babies have been going for adoption and also many babies have received much needed surgeries with the help of our MedArt and Mending Kids friends. Also because of the support from the Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation and many others, our Beijing Center’s financial situation is on a very firm base.Our long-time partner in the work in Henan, Show Hope, continues to provide very significant support – all told they have made a commitment of almost $3M to assist in the work in Henan this upcoming year. And while full funding of all available beds has always been their goal, the size of our operations there now requires that we find additional financial help in order to maximize the number of beds we are able to fill and thus the number of children in Henan we can care for. The not so good news is that over the next 12 months we have a shortfall of US$1,000,000 in the funding for the Special Care Centers in Henan (a reduction of 1/4 over previous year). This means that we need to reduce the number of babies in our care by around 80 babies in the next few months. Some of these babies will be adopted, some will pass away, but the majority will be returned to the Government Children’s Welfare Institutes (CWI). We are of course very sad that this has to happen but there is no way around this unless another donor comes along. Our first step will be to reduce our Jiaozuo Special Care Center from 36 babies to 12. This will happen during the month of August. We will move babies to other units where space permits and 8 children who are able to cope will return to the Jiaozuo CWI. We are prayerfully asking for God to identify those individuals and donor organizations that can walk alongside New Hope and Show Hope in Henan to provide the optimum care possible. Since Joyce and I started in this work in 1999 we have seen God provide over and over again for what He wanted to do and we really believe that is still the case. We count you all as our friends and you have all been a part of this work; we feel that it is only right that we put this situation before you all. With Love and Gratitude,Robin, Joyce and the New Hope Staff Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable and receives the impossible. Corrie Ten Boom We were glad to have a visit this month by a group from Lake Joondalup Baptist College in Australia (a portion of the group pictured above). They came with a bus load of students and teachers willing to work and loads of supplies for our babies! This month we’ve welcomed new volunteers Brynn and Cassidy, college students from Canada. Brynn and Cassidy will be teaching our preschool classes during the month of August and helping with swim time, amongst other responsibilities. We are also glad to welcome back Andrew and Jo-anne from Australia. After a two-week visit in 2015, they’ve decided to...

June 2016 Newsletter

Posted by on Jul 1, 2016 in News | 0 comments

(This newsletter originally appeared here.) Dear Friends and Supporters, As we write Robin, Joyce and Katie are on holiday in the UK. As most of you know, Robin has recently been awarded the MBE Award, which was presented to him at Buckingham Palace on June 22nd. In addition to receiving this great award, they are taking some time to visit friends and relatives and have even been able to go on a sailing trip, a hobby which Robin has loved for many, many years.There was a wonderful article written about Robin and Joyce in the South China Morning Post:http://www.scmp.com/lifestyle/families/article/1978406/british-honour-recognises-work-couple-whove-helped-thousands Here in Beijing, June began with a Children’s Day celebration. This is a Chinese holiday in which children around the country are celebrated. We had some local visitors who showered the children with gifts and some wonderful sweet treats! It was very touching that on this day when children are celebrated, there were so many people who thought of our children and came out to visit them.June has also brought with it hotter weather, which means the children have finally been able to take part in swimming! Most are ecstatic when Tuesdays and Thursdays come around and they get to swim with volunteers and classmates. A big thanks to all who donated rash guards/swim shirts for our children to use this summer!               We have 3 great volunteers helping us this summer: David from Canada, Emma from the UK, and Ella from Ghana. We are very grateful for their help and for the way in which they enrich the children’s lives with their time, energy and presence. In addition to our volunteers, summer usually brings groups from all over the world to visit our children. This month we welcomed a group of high school students, staff, and parents from Texas. This group spent the majority of their time playing with the children, but also helped us with multiple projects around the home including cleaning, painting, and gardening. We know that the work we do would not be as enriching for the children without so many hands and hearts being a part of it with us, and for that we are very thankful!With Love and Gratitude,Robin, Joyce and the New Hope Staff A Note from Joyce: Rob and I are so proud to announce that our son Adam has been appointed “Japanese Cuisine Goodwill Ambassador” in Australia for his contribution to the promotion of Japanese food culture in Australia. This is the first time that this has been presented to a person outside of Japan. Adam, a lawyer, won the Australian MasterChef competition in 2010 and now writes cookbooks and is about to begin filming his fifth season of the popular television series, Destination Flavour. Thank you to ISB students Kelly, Indie and Emma who came to our home 3 days in a row (in the heat) to complete the painting of our preschool playground fence. They did a fantastic job and left our preschool students with a wonderful addition to their playground! One of our former volunteers, Chelsea, is running a fundraiser for New Hope through Usborne Books & More. Through this fundraiser you have the option of purchasing books for yourself (commission from sales will be donated to New Hope) and/or purchase books for the children at New Hope from a...
