Would You Consider Being Part of Our Pearl River Family?

It's been way too long since I poured my heart out at this Blog...  The last time I did, you all responded in such a beautiful way...  Thank you for that...  I am beyond thrilled to report that "Liam" has found his family... Or should I say his family has found him...  He's not in his Mama's arms yet, but he will be soon!  I have had the priviledge of connecting with this very special family!  Thank you to all of you who spread the word...  When that sweet "cuddle bug" is safely home, I will definitely shout it out to all of you.. In the meantime, if you are led, please pray for all of the details to come together soon, so they can bring him home early this fall!

Today, I am taking this opportunity to ask you to respond/help again... This time we need new sponsors for several of our Pearl River Babies.  Over one year ago, we were in China opening new doors, and adding new children.  We were overwhelmed, and beyond touched with the response we got from so many new families last spring.  Because of you, we were able to take on more children then we ever thought possible..   We've had an amazing year.  We have seen 26 of our babies adopted since last spring!  Amazing!
Adopted last month!

But, our need continues...   For every child that is adopted, there is a new child waiting to be loved.
Thankfully, we have been blessed to keep our doors open for these children..  It's a privilege to provide them with the love of a family, until it's finally their turn...

Faith is now home with her forever family too!

With that said, we do need your help!  We are in need of sponsors..   This is the time of year when many of our sponsorships need to be renewed.  Some families choose to stay on for a very long time, and some just for one year.  Our need for sponsors is really no surprise with the growth we saw after our time in China last April.  I am confident we will be back at 100% sponsorship soon..

Will you consider becoming part of our PRO family?   Your commitment will be $35 per month, or $420 annually.  Your donation goes towards providing your child a foster family.  Your dollars also go towards food, clothing, and other needs.  Our staff in China meets with all of our children a minimum of once a month.  In Hunan, our medical team does monthly check-ups on our kids.  In Guangdong, we work directly with the orphanage staff to be our liasion with our foster families.  I receive updates and photos of our kiddos monthly.

Part of our amazing team in China!

Last year I personally saw our program in action..  Since then I have connected with many families who have adopted our Bamboo Babies..  The consistent message that I get from their forever parents, is that they were well taken care of an prepared to be loved!  I am so thankful for that!

So, here are the children that I have today, who are in need of 1 or more sponsors.  If you would like to sponsor one of our sweet babies, please email me directly at diana@pearlriveroutreach.org or send me a message via the Pearl River Facebook page!
