One of my teammates is adopting a baby and will be bringing her home from China at the end of the year sometime. Below is a post from her blog that gives each of us an opportunity to support them in bringing Brynn home. You can check out how cute Brynn is and the story of her adoption here.
Did you know there are hundreds of millions of children worldwide who have lost one or both parents.
Every 14 seconds an AIDS death leaves another child orphaned.
Approximately 88 million orphans live in Asia.
Approximately 45 million orphans live in Africa.
Approximately 14 million orphans live in Latin America & the Caribbean.
Approximately 1 million children live in public care in Central and Eastern Europe
More than 800,000 children pass through America’s foster care system each year.
These statistics do not even include the UNKNOWN children living orphaned both here and abroad that go uncounted, unnoticed and unloved.
Quoted from the girls at 147millionOrphans
In a few short months there will be ONE LESS orphan!
Brynn Olivia Ai Xin will be a daughter and sister, she will be the loved member of a family.
Please join with us in our first fundraiser to help bring Brynn home!
All of the proceeds will be going towards our "mandatory orphanage donation fee". The week before we leave to get Brynn, we are required to wire $6,000 to the Pingdingshan City Social Welfare Institute. This money is required and will go towards Brynn's past care expenses and towards the babies who remain behind.
