Journey of Hope Guangxi with The Barker Adoption Foundation
Barker recently participated in a Journey of Hope program in Guangxi China. This program allowed us to meet many special needs children from four different orphanages in Guangxi in hope that we would be able to find families for them. We have been assigned the files of twelve children through this program. Information on the first five children is available on this blog.
Chen Jun is a 5 year old boy with mild Cerebral Palsy. He was 2 years old when he first came to the orphanage and wasn’t able to sit alone or roll over. After receiving good care, therapy and surgery, he can sit independently and walk with holding onto a T-frame. He didn’t use to talk much but his speech skills are now strong although he can be shy. He can take care of himself. His teachers consider him brave and strong and he is cooperative with his therapy even when it hurts. He is described as sweet, polite and a good listener. Chen Jun is part of a recent Journey of Hope program with The Barker Adoption Foundation.
