WACAP staff members Mary Moo and Elana Roschy recently returned from a trip to China, where they met many children in need of families. Mary provided a brief update about these children:
We saw over 300 children and we will be looking for families for close to 150 of them. Some of the 150 are children we already have been advocating for but many of them are new children for whom we’ll be receiving files for over the coming months.
During the trip we met with 5 partnership orphanages and one of those is a new partnership orphanage in Shandong province. We are sorting through thousands of photos that we took during the trip. We saw children whose medical conditions were resolved or reasonably minor as well as children with significant needs. Two younger children had very serious heart conditions so we hope to get their files quickly to start advocating for them.
