A visit to China and Changsha #1!

Our Pearl River team just returned from a ten day trip to China. The purpose of this trip was to visit the children, meet with the orphanage directors, evaluate our work in each province, and to thank all the foster mom's for the difference they are making in the lives of our Bamboo Babies!

Our team visited the homes of all of the Foster Mother's in Zanjiang and Changsha. Each Bamboo Baby received an Easter basket filled with toys that were developmentally appropriate. All of the foster mom's received training in their homes specific to the child living with them. Time was also spent evaluating living conditions, home safety and the development of each child. Lastly our team hosted appreciation dinners and lunches for all of our foster parents.

It was a worthwhile and productive trip! Thanks to Christina, Julie, Marissa and Shelby for taking the time to truly make a difference!

Here are some photos from their trip to Changsha #1...
