Children previously under care

Show Hope’s Care Centers provide acute care for children who are among the most medically fragile orphans in China. Because of this focus, it is common for children to transition out of our care over time. In some instances, a child’s guardian orphanage will choose to call them back prior to adoption. In other instances, a child may return to their guardian orphanage to enable another child access to the care we provide. It is our privilege to love and care for each child entrusted to us for whatever length of time God allows.
