Reasons to be Thankful

Thanksgiving is an American holiday, but in this little corner of China it is celebrated with great enthusiasm!  We love the chance to make turkey hats in preschool, to dress the kids up as little pilgrims and eat Karen’s amazing pumpkin pie.  And, of course, it’s the perfect time to remember the many, many things that we have to be thankful for.

We are thankful for our kids.  Each of them unique and precious, each with an amazing story to tell…

We are thankful for our amazing nannies.  We literally could not do what we do without them, they are the mamas, the caregivers, the heart of New Day Foster Home.

We are thankful for our foster families.  For the children that are medically able to move out of the foster home, a family atmosphere is just what they need in order to thrive until they join forever families.

We are thankful for our medical and therapy staff.  They do such an awesome job of taking care of our children with often complicated and serious medical conditions, and helping them to make progress.

We are thankful for our volunteers, for those who come to live and serve here, whether it is for one week, one year or anything in between.

We are thankful for all our donors and monthly sponsors, who make all of this possible.  This festive season there are many ways to support New Day Foster Home while doing your own shopping, check out our Amazon and Scarlet Threads links, and consider 'a gift that gives' for those hard-to-buy-for friends and relatives.

Happy Thanksgiving!
