Lunar New Year Appeal 2023
Wishing you and your family abundance, harmony and joy this lunar new year!
Lunar New Year celebrates the season for new beginnings – for little Xi Xi*, this New Year brings newfound family too.
Xi Xi came from a difficult home environment, being exposed to traumatic incidents since she was a toddler. When she was first introduced to her foster parents, she was a scared child and was unable to accept physical affection from them. Attempts by her foster family to show her care and love were initially met with cries and fear.
However, with love, patience and the setting of safe daily routines from her foster parents, Xi Xi grew to be more at ease in her new environment. When her foster parents welcomed a newborn baby to the family, Xi Xi became a loving and protective older sister who always looked out for her younger sister. Through the care of her foster family, as well as a stable and supportive environment, Xi Xi flourished and found her own creative talent in art.
Boys’ Town Fostering Services continues to support children like Xi Xi and their foster families as they find warmth, love and joy in their new beginnings. This Lunar New Year, we seek your generosity and kind support in our work serving children and youth in-need.
May you and your loved ones enjoy a New Year filled with joy, blessings and good health!
