Early on Dec. 20, Marshfield High School sophomore Gabby Grammer will leave for China. Grammer will be going with her mom and older sister to “New Day’s Foster Home.”
After Grammer and her family adopted her younger siblings from Vietnam, her mother has wanted to help kids ever since. The “New Days Foster Home” is an American run orphanage. This orphanage is home to children between the ages of 2 and 14. These children are recovering from surgery for cleft lip and heart disease. Some are here awaiting surgery.
“This is my first time out of the country, Grammer said “we had to get passports, visas, and pass a background check. If we didn’t get one of these things we aren’t allowed in.”
The trip is very costly so Grammer’s dad started working a part time job on top of his full time job. “Every bit of money he’s made has gone to our trip,” she said.
Grammer is excited and ready to go to China and help. “If God calls me to go to another country and serve I’ll go.” While she’s waiting she’s going to do her best to help those children in the Chinese orphanage.
