On Sunday, July 29, 2012, in following her Momma's footsteps (literally), Skylar Bear will be doing her first fundraising run!
During our visit to Beijing in April, we had the pleasure of visiting the New Hope Foster Home, where they lovingly help abandoned babies by providing care and medical treatment for those with surgically correctable deformities. As many of you know, the one-child rule in China means that thousands of babies born with deformities or health issues are abandoned every year. While we cannot help them all, even one baby saved is worth the effort.
With Hope Foster Home's great work, many children they are able to take into their Home make a full recovery and are adopted into loving "forever families" WORLDWIDE. Through their tireless efforts, Robin and Joyce (the founders and operators), have given many babies, otherwise destined for an early ending, a fighting chance at a life full of love and endless possibilities.
Skylar was deeply affected by the babies she played with, she thoroughly enjoyed being their Jeh Jeh (big sister) and asked to return soon. She asked many questions and took everything in as she realized that she is, indeed, a lucky child. She realizes that there are many who are not as lucky as she to enjoy good health and a loving family.
She wants to do her part to help them...and she needs your help to do it!
