ND North- Baotou

Background

Since 2013, New Day North personnel have been active serving at the Baotou orphanage, providing training sessions and other support. Starting in 2017, New Day North began regular monthly trips to Baotou to support a feeding project for several toddlers with cerebral palsy who have eating challenges.

For several years, the director of the Baotou orphanage has asked for New Day North to start a project in their orphanage just like the one in the Wulanchabu orphanage.

Current Situation

On July 11, 2018, New Day North received the determinative word that Ruth, a child from the Baotou orphanage living in the Hohhot New Day North facility, would have to return to the orphanage because of recent policy decisions. Ruth was returned on Monday, July 16. The orphanage agreed to have nannies from New Day North accompany and stay with Ruth, supporting the orphanage in caring for Ruth, as well as helping there in any other way they could.

On that same day, at the initiative of the Baotou orphanage directors, New Day North discussed possible plans for a project inside the Baotou orphanage as soon as possible.

Phase I

Three nannies who are working shifts in Baotou will continue in that capacity. The nannies are willing to commute the one hour from Hohhot to Baotou to work shifts, and the orphanage is very willing for the nannies to work there in that capacity. The basic arrangement is for each nanny to work in Baotou for two days and then return to Hohhot to rest for four days. The nannies add critical help to the existing nannies in the suite, helping with Ruth as well as the other children in the room, most of whom have cerebral palsy

The nannies continue to be paid as New Day North employees, so they work at the Baotou orphanage as volunteers and no other arrangements are necessary. New Day North coaches provide regular (weekly or bi-weekly) coaching to the nannies in the room.

Cost:
Phase I @ Baotou (monthly)
Nannies: 3 @ $465/month $1,395
Coach: ½ her time @ $550 $275
Travel $330
Total $2000

Stephanie

If only we could wake up from the dream, the one where each one of these precious children have families, and discover that it was real. The cold hard fact is that there are children who do not have mommies and daddies. And it’s a lot like a nightmare sometimes.

According to her paperwork, Stephanie turned 13 this past February. And oh, how we celebrated! Our sweet Stephanie, who has lived in our care since 2014, has celebrated four birthday parties with us, and with each one, our hopes for her grew. When we first met her, she was a scared and skinny little thing, eager to please but too weak to do much more than laugh. Now she has developed in every way, growing in mobility, feeding herself (not necessarily without mess), and using some sign language and picture-boards for communication.

It’s hard to know what Stephanie will and won’t be able to do in life, so the family that adopts her will need to walk with her through the challenges that lie ahead. Yet, Stephanie is a precious little girl who doesn’t have a family today, and she needs one. Because, very simply, every child should have a family.

If Stephanie reaches her 14th birthday without being adopted, she will be ineligible for adoption. She will have to spend the rest of her life in an institution in China. All of her chances to have a forever family to love her and call her daughter will be gone.

So here we are. Asking you … will you consider adopting Stephanie into your family? Or perhaps you know the family who is meant for her. Will you act today?

For any family willing to take the leap of faith, it IS possible. But you need to start the process right now.

In February, Stephanie will celebrate her 14th birthday, and we will do whatever we can to make sure that she knows how precious she is for the rest of her life. But she needs to celebrate that birthday in her forever family. Will you help make that happen?
