Inspiring story of a former orphan

Take a few minutes to watch Scout Bassett’s amazing story!   She started life as an orphan, abandoned outside of an orphanage in Nanjing.  There was no explanation for her missing lower right leg or the burns and scars on other areas of her body.  At age six, she was adopted by a loving family in the United States.  Since then she’s grown into a beautiful young lady and talented athlete.  Enjoy her story!

Continued Hope for BMH Campers

It’s been six weeks since the last Bring Me Hope camp ended in China.  As we all settle back into our normal routines, it can be easy to forget the little ones we’ve left behind.  That’s why it’s so inspiring to hear about volunteers who have decided to intentionally advocate for their children after camp.

Rob Malloy, a student from Ireland, was a volunteer at the Xi’an camp this year.  Since coming home in August, he has made it his goal to find a family for his buddy, Lei Xiao Feng (Jacob).  With the help of BMH staffer, Kristen Chase, he put together an article (featured here ), YouTube video, and an email asking if anyone would be willing to adopt Jacob.  The response has been incredible! We are confident Jacob will soon have a forever family.

Volunteers and BMH friends, would you take a moment to ask The Father what you can do to help the kids?  It may be writing them a letter, supporting their orphanage, finding an adoptive family, praying for them…  We trust He will show you the way if you ask.  Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for the children!  He does amazing work through His people!
