It has been a long and exciting day already for the children, but they sit and wait patiently with their foster mums.
While we wait for the food, time for some formalities...
Gifts from Scotland,
And Gifts for the girls...Miao Embroidered Bags
Time for some sharing of updates from Desheng Children for SWI Staff and Foster families.
Then it was time for the delicious food!
All was quiet for a little while.......
Time again to check in to see which foster mothers were there and which letters and photos would need to be delivered to those who were no longer working there, or just unable to come to the meal.
Lots of things to translate, discuss and share...busy time!
Some particularly special :-)
Yup, she LOVES that Hoop :-)
And our crazy girls, cooling off after a very hectic, emotional day for them too!
It is always very special to be at Desheng
to share connections from those whose early beginnings were here,
and as Hope4China to see the wonderful children we support,
being cared for by loving foster families who do so much for them in so many ways,
thro the Grace-Hope Foster Care Programme.
There were some "very special " moments from this Trip:-)
There are still many, many children still needing sponsors
to give them this love and support which every child deserves!!!!!!!!!
and see if you could make a difference to a little one waiting.........
