Dan and I are fortunate enough to have an abundance of family to look out for us and buy us nice things, but not everyone has this privilege. For my birthday this year instead of a personal present, we'd love it if you could consider supporting a child who has many needs but doesn't have a family of his own. Butterfly Children's Hospice - a charity operating with abandoned children in China but with whom we have direct contact from their registered office in Exeter - do some amazing work in this area.
You can read more about Noah's story below... Thank you so much!

When Noah first arrived to the Butterfly Home, we were unsure if he would even survive those first few days. His hydrocephalus was so severe, his head was very large and he was very ill. Thankfully, he has an amazing medical team in Shanghai, who inserted a shunt and continuously monitor him closely to adjust the pressures to make him comfortable. We are now hopeful that Noah will have a bright future, but because of his larger head circumference it can be difficult for him to sit up or for his ayis to take him outside. We have had him measured for a wheelchair with a specially adapted headrest but we need YOUR help to get Noah his wheels.
Over the last number of years, our generous supporters have come together from all corners of the world to get wheelchairs for some of our children. Annie, William, Edmund and most recently Matilda all have wheelchairs specially designed to meet their specific needs - because of YOU!
They are not ‘just’ chairs for these children. They are life changers - allowing them to see their world from a different angle, to get around easier, and to participate in daily activities! Now it's Noah's turn. Can you help him get HIS wheels?
