Transformations (Part 1)

Sometimes, when a child first arrives at New Day, they are afraid, guarded, quiet. The moment they come through the doors of our foster home, they become part of our family, and they are loved. It may take a little while for them to understand and realize this love, but when then do... something beautiful happens-- they blossom. They gain weight; they start to talk; they let their personalities shine. They start to heal, and the transformation is absolutely amazing.

Over the next week or two, you will be able to see for yourself the ways our little ones have grown and changed. We hope this helps you to see how much your support means in their lives. Love really does make a difference.

Just take a look:






  1. What a beautiful thing to see the change into happy children. They're all so sweet...I'd love to bring them all home!!

  2. I remember seeing pictures of the way Evan (Forest) looked when he came. What a blessing that our family gets to see first hand how Love truly makes a difference.

  3. We have really seen the benefits of this love first hand. Thanks for all that you are doing to change the lives of these kids.

  4. This is soooo true. When Emelia (HongShuang) first came she looked so sad and afraid in her photos, but now I love looking at photos of her smiling on the scrapbook!! :)

    Hannah is a perfect example of this also! :) She looks like a different kid!

  5. Oh wow! Such huge changes in those little sweeties! I was captivated by Cora some time ago, what a blessing to see how she is thriving.

  6. I love this post.
    The photos testify as to the fact that "LOVE GROWS HERE"!
    Your work in inspiring!
    Love & Blessings,

  7. Love Love Love is all we need....thank you new day for LOVING all these precious children.
