Dear Friends

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your love, support, and prayers for the children of Luoyang Orphanage.  It has been amazing to see the outpouring of compassion to these kids from friends from all over the world.  What a blessing your involvement has been to all of us.

We are deeply saddened to inform you that due to a variety of considerations, we will be unable to proceed with The China Home Foundation.  Working with these kids for the past several years has been an enormous joy and privilege, and I trust that the love they have been shown by so many of you will continue to resonate with them throughout their lives.  We ask that you continue to pray for these kids specifically and collectively - that the seeds that have been planted will continue to be nurtured and grow.

For those who have provided financial support to China Home Foundation, the majority of the funds contributed to us have remained unused.  We wish to retain these funds until early fall to determine if they can be used to benefit these particular kids in any way.  At that time, we will release any remaining funds to one or more of several organizations that we have worked with which are doing similar work to benefit orphans in China.  We will release specific details as that time approaches.  Please contact us if you have any concerns about this.

Thank you again for your support for this work, and we trust that the seeds that have been planted in the past few years will grow into something beautiful.

With our sincere gratitude,

Your friends at China Home Foundation
