International Women's Day

March 8th is a day set aside around the world to celebrate women. Here in China the day is celebrated by giving all women half a day off of work. 

Malala Yousafzai said, "Do not wait for someone else to come and speak for you. It's you who can change the world"

Here at New Day we have a lot of women who are doing just that, changing the world. Many of them may think that is not that case, but all you have to do is look at how they lovingly care for the children and fulfill their jobs to know that each of them is making a huge difference!

Women like our nannies. These amazing ladies care for and love the children like they are their own. They are the ones that care for them while they are sick, stay with them at the hospital, and provide cuddles with they are needed. The nannies are the ones who celebrate each victory as they watch the children grow up before their eyes. 

Women like our therapy and medical staff. They research the medical needs of our children and fight for them to get the very best care possible. They work with them each and every day stretching, talking, and building strength so they can reach each developmental milestone. 

Women like our foster mamas. They welcome children into their homes and raise them as if they were their own. These are the mamas who tuck the children in bed each night and are there if they wake up in the middle of the night. They are the mamas who teach the children what it means to be loved and what it means to be part of a family. 

Women like our teachers. These women show up each and every day ready to teach the children. They come up with creative ideas to help the children learn concepts and ensure that each and every class is full of both learning and fun.

Women like our volunteers and office staff. They daily pour themselves out to show the children just how loved that they are. 

We are so thankful for each of these women, women who are truly changing the world
