Review: The House of Hope

The Hills, just an ordinary couple living in China, felt called to open their home to sick and abandoned babies.  They started with a cot in the dining room.  Soon another baby came, and another.  All with medical issues.  The Hills found experts willing to treat them, and besides using their own savings for these babies, they also received support …first from church members and the local butcher, and eventually from people and organizations throughout the world.

In the past decade over 1000 abandoned children have been welcomed by the HillsThe House of Hope contains story after story of these children, rescued, cared for, and often even adopted.  It’s full of high drama, rare medical conditions, hurried flights to foreign hospitals, miracles, and heartache.  It shows how the Hills, doctors, and support persons give their time, skills, talents and love to save baby after baby.  Steve Curtis Chapman, Love Without Boundaries, and other organizations are major supporters of the Hills, their medical work, and their adoption work.  As Robyn says, “God provides abundantly for the things He wants us to do.”

The Hills love God and children and believe that, although the children they care for had been “discarded and their medical problems had led them to be shunned, in Gods eyes these children deserved the best.”  Their mission in caring for these sick and physically disabled babies is “To comfort always, to relieve often, and to save sometimes.”  You can see the detailed vision for Hope Foster Home here.

By buying the book you, too, can help.  100% of the proceeds of this book go to fund the work at Hope Foster Home.    You will learn about the children and you will be inspired by the Hills.  These humble people emphasize that they are ‘just an ordinary couple who decided to say “yes” to what God wanted to do….and that God can be trusted to do what He wants to do.  Rob says, “It is possible to spend your whole life focusing on your own comfort and safety, or you can accept God’s invitation to come into that river of His amazing love.”’
