Little Flowers in China!

They aren't quite the same as groups here, but I wanted to share the work of this graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville who started a home for dying Chinese orphans in 2007. The Loving Heart Home for Dying Orphans http://www.chinalittleflower.org/ relies totally on donations to continue its work.

Maybe your Little Flowers Girls' Club group would like to do a fundraiser for these orphans? The pictures of the orphans are on the website. Each girl could adopt one and raise funds for that girl. If you can't do a fundraiser for the China Little Flowers, perhaps your girls could send a spiritual bouquet to them?

One of the amazing results from this work is the transformation of Chinese women. In China, a child is valuable only if it is perfect. An imperfect child is cast aside to make room for a perfect child. The work with the orphans has shown the Chinese women who help out the value of each life and the beauty of every soul. Just goes to show you how one young woman, following the promptings of the Holy Spirit, can change hearts.

God bless!
