Transforming the Lives of China's Orphans

     The cornerstone of our work in China was Harmony House orphan home in Hebei province, in the city of Langfang.  It was here that special needs orphans from all over China began a life-transformational journey through our Three Steps to Hope (Foster Care, Surgery and Adoption) program.  Our goal was to step into the shoes of their missing parents and come to their rescue in Jesus’ name - to take their problems and make them our problems.  In a country with a One Child Policy, many of our children were abandoned because they were born with special needs or because they were female.  These children faced a life growing up in a state institution without the love and help of family.  Government can provide for basic physical necessities but government cannot love.  In each case we were able to transform their lives from stories of abandonment and despair into beautiful stories of redemption and love.

Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds;  rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.  A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.  God sets the lonely in families,  he leads out the prisoners with singing… (Psalm 68:4-6)

      In total, 130 Harmony orphans found their Forever Families when their God-appointed parents traveled across the world to bring them home!
