Tai, age 17
Tai’s mother became the second wife to a man who already had two children; but their father was rarely around. She provided for Tai and his two older brothers as best she could
selling Soya cakes in the market place, which earned them a meager living. After 20 years of this grueling work the heavy bags had taken a toll and she began suffering severe back pain. It was no longer a way of life she could count on, and she knew she needed to find a way to ensure Tai was taken care of. She learned of Home of Hope (HoH) and asked to place Tai with the family. At eight years old, Tai, who hadn’t seen his father in more than a year, joined the HoH family. He immediately loved school and began to find a new sense of security and belonging. Today, Tai loves school! He is now in high school and is very hardworking and determined in his studies. His favorite subjects are technology and geography. In his free time Tai loves working with technology and loves working on the computer—this includes fixing the computer when it breaks down! Tai is very social and friendly and has an engaging personality.

Toan, age 21
Toan’s mother became the second wife to a man who already had two children. Toan’s mother cared for he and his two brothers as best she could, but their father
was rarely around and when Toan came to live at Home of Hope (HoH), he had not seen his father in over a year. Toan’s mother earned an income by selling Soya cakes; but after 20 years of carrying these heavy bags she was suffering severe back pain and knew that she would not be able to do the work much longer. Toan was eleven when he came to HoH. He was in the fifth grade and loved school, but was very behind due to lingering health issues he suffered from after developing acute kidney inflammation when he was younger. Today, Toan is finishing up high school and his grades are excellent! Although he appears quiet and shy, Toan is very mature and he takes his role as older brother very seriously. Toan is a strong believer and is very involved in church activities. He is the youth group leader and loves leading the youth in worship and fellowship.

Thang, age 22
Thang never knew his birth father. Thang’s mother left his alcoholic father before he was born. Thang and his mother moved to his elderly grandmother’s home. His
grandmother suffered from a disease that left her unable to work. Thang’s mother worked far away earning meager wages, and she would leave Thang in his grandmother’s care for months at a time. As an only child, and with no other relatives to care for him, his mother worried that he would be left alone if his grandmother died. She learned of Hope’s Promise and requested her son be placed with the Home of Hope (HoH) family. Thang was excited to join the HoH family because he was eager to have siblings. Thang is now the eldest brother of nine boys! He certainly got the siblings he was hoping for. Thang is very independent and confident. He is excelling in school—specifically in math and physics. But Thang dreams of being a musician one day! He and his brothers spend hours playing instruments together, and he is currently teaching himself to play the guitar.

Chan, age 16
When Chan was two years old, his mother died from complications during labor. Because of his love for his children, Chan’s father chose not to marry again (traditionally
he would re-marry and move away from his children) and instead chose to parent his five children. As a farmer, he barely made enough for their survival. All the siblings, except Chan and his baby brother, worked as day laborers. Chan would normally also have to work except that his father sought the help of Hope’s Promise and chose to entrust Chan and his little brother into the care of the Home of Hope (HoH) family. Chan had struggled with school work, and in the third grade he was three years behind other students his age. Today, Chan is one of the top students in his class! He loves school and is excelling in biology and art. Sadly, Chan’s biological father passed away not long after Chan came home to HoH. His father’s immense compassion and love overflowed to Chan, and as a result Chan is an incredibly compassionate young man – especially with the poor and elderly.
