Auction closed

The auction is now closed. Thank you Ruthi for your bid and helping to bring David home to his family. Please email me so I can ask you questions about the sizing/sewing of the dress.

Robin, from Red Thread Stitches fundraises for China Little Flower through auctions. In about a week I will have another outfit to auction on Robins website. So please check back. Below is a photo of come of the children at China little flower. They provide much hospice care. Below the photo is a brief description of China little Flower.
China Little Flower is named after St. Therese “the little flower” who had a great heart for China. Their staff consists of less than 30, including the nannies who care for the babies. They are working in cooperation with the Oblates of Mary Immaculate (priests and lay missionaries) and Missionary Benedictines (a small convent of nuns). They have always kept the number of babies in the hospice at 12 to 15, but the new home will have beds for up to 20. The home was expanded from only a home for dying babies, to also accepting fragile preemie/low birth weight babies, and also those born with congenital club feet. The babies come from all over China, not just Taiyuan. China Little Flower also cares for older disabled orphans in foster families; there are about 40 of them. Some attend school, and some are severely disabled and mentally retarded and do not. The work is funded solely by donations.
