A Visit to Fuyang Foster Care

Our LWB China Director, Stephanie Wang, has been on the road this month visiting many of our foster care locations in Henan, Anhui, and Hunan province. We are so happy and proud to have Stephanie on our LWB Team. She truly knows what is involved in providing good foster care for the children and has wonderful insight to troubleshoot obstacles as they come up making sure the kids always come first.

On Wednesday, she visited our Fuyang foster care program which celebrated it's one year anniversary in January.

Here is what she had to say about this trip.

I visited Fuyang this morning and was able to spend some time with every child in our foster care program.

I LOVED the foster family of a little 4 1/2 year old boy named Joseph. The foster parents take care of two children. The grandparents are young, in good health, and live very close by. They also take care of two children. It is wonderful to see this big extended family together. They all really enjoy each other's company and all the children have a joyful spirit. The foster care grandpa has a special bike for taking the two boys to kindergarten as you can see. I like the bike so much! From the creation of this special bike, we can see how much they were loved by this family.

All our kids under this program seems happy and healthy.

I went with Yin Yan to the families this morning. She looks know the children well, even only meet them once.
I am sure we will have some great reports from her.
