Hope’s father became ill and died when she was young, and her mother left home. Hope then went to live with her 18-year-old brother and his family. Her older sister, who was just 16 at the time, was 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.
In March of 2012, we welcomed little Hope into our Training Center. She is adorably cute—as you can see—outgoing, affectionate, and also very helpful. She likes singing and dancing and has been a part of our Living Hope Angels Tour in the United States.
Our Hope is receiving a quality education and will have real hope for her future. She is becoming more independent and learning valuable life skills. She is very much loved by all and returns the love as well. We are proud to have her as our little namesake!

Jason was abandoned as a baby and sent by police to the Fuzhou Children’s Welfare Institute. He has cerebral palsy with paralysis on the right side, epilepsy, and a shrunken right hand and right foot. Though he takes medication daily for his epilepsy, he still suffers from seizures. In spite of this, Jason can stand, walk, run, and he is able to get along quite independently. He is able to clearly communicate with everyone.
Jason is an extremely curious boy. He likes to take apart everything he gets his hands on! He’s very happy and outgoing. He is courteous when he greets new people and shows great etiquette. Jason was able to spend some time with a foster family, which he really enjoyed, but due to his foster mother’s illness, it was necessary for him to return to the Children’s Welfare Institute.
We were delighted to be able to bring Jason into our Living Hope home. He interacts very well with others. He currently attends a school for those with special needs. With love and nurturing, we look forward to helping Jason become all that he can be!
