Caring for China's Orphans was founded in 1995 when Tim & Jeannie Butler adopted their middle daughter Haley from MaAnshan in the Anhui province of China. Jeannie and Tim were among the first families in Nashville to expand their family through China's international adoption program. Jeannie heard of the great need for basic necessities in the orphanages and delivered a box of basic supplies to the Maanshan orphanage when in China for Haley's adoption. After witnessing first hand the great need in 1995 she knew she must return and provide aid to those children still waiting for a family.
Now in their 20th year, Caring for China's Orphans has made 34 trips to China; delivered THOUSANDS of pounds of orphan supplies; funded surgeries, medical care, and education; and had the privilege of rocking and loving countless children in the orphanages served.
Caring for China's Orphans is a 501(c)(3) non-profit (Federal ID 45-3787737). Donations to CfCO are tax-deductible. If you would like more information on how you can help, click here.
