Meet my Superman Joshua!
When we were first introduced to Joshua I had never heard of the Butterfly Children's Hospice. I soon found pictures and videos of Joshua on their Facebook page and website, in addition to their blog. After watching the 2 part documentary on their website we were left with a since of awe and were humbled by the amazing dedication of Lyn and Alan Gould. They have embraced the children of China with caring hands and open hearts.
We had the privilege of visiting the Butterfly Home on our adoption trip. It is a Home! Filled with love and happiness. Yes, there were children there who were receiving hospice care, but they were not placed in a spot just to die. They were experiencing life in what ever way it could be received. The walls were adorned with vivid colors and fun paintings and happy music filled the air. Couches, and pads on the floors filled with children as if they were in someone's living room. The playroom was exciting and had plenty of toys to play with. The Ayi's and nurses carefully attended each child with LOVE and respect no matter what needs were to be met.
I cannot imagine our lives without Joshua. A mischievous, funny, loving and sweet boy whose energy never seems to slow down. We are forever grateful for the care and love he received while living at BCH. He still tells me happy memories of when he lived there. We will always continue to support them in any way possible. I hope you find it in your heart to give so they continue to help children in need! $5, $10, $20 or more. Everything helps! Thank you so much! God Bless.
