Hope (Li Ting) was born on May 12, 2003. Her father became ill and died, and her mother left home. Hope went to live with her 18 year old brother and his family. Her older sister, who is 16, is also married. Both of her siblings are uneducated and earn their living as farmers. With other children to support, there just was not enough money to go around. On March 14, 2012, we welcomed Hope into our Fangshan Training Center.
