Chinese Canadian Margaret MacNeil’s gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics has drawn attention to international adoptions from China and to China’s orphans. Here we repost an interview with a Chinese Christian woman who left a corporate job to care for disabled orphans.
Nearly 10 years ago, at the age of 15, Wendy (Su Ying) joined our family here at Shepherd's Field Children's Village from her home orphanage in Fuzhou. Wendy was born with paraplegia, which left her unable to walk or actively move her body from the waist down. Regardless of her physical limitations, Wendy proved to be a smart, active, innovative, and confident young woman who truly has a heart for others.
