It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!

The amazing staff at First Hugs has used their own time, money, talents, and dedication to decorate and celebrate Christmas with our sweet babies!  Here are some pictures of the decorations and festivities. Stay tuned for a post of the kids enjoying their Christmas gifts soon.

C.Y. is having so much fun!!!

Could he be any cuter? Or Merrier?

Kendall and her ayi look so sweet and festive. Kendall is ready and waiting for her forever family!

Beautiful Aubrey is also ready and waiting for a family. What a perfect Christmas gift that would be!

Smile! It's Christmas!

Jammies, antlers, and a ball. It doesn't get much cuter than that.

Our staff has so much love for these babies!

Decorations made and provided by First Hugs ayis and staff

Aubrey is a cute little Santa baby

Sweet Taylor Shae looks warm and snuggly with her ayi.

 First Hugs is supported by donors and helps meet the needs of children who are orphaned and have medical and developmental challenges as well as the challenge of not having a family. Any size donation helps support these children with better nutrition and medical care as well as specially trained, and loving nannies, which makes all the different to institutionalized children.

Our current fundraising is desperately low and with new funds and current regular donors we only have enough to get to March. Please help support our holiday fundraiser so these babies can continue to receive the love and care they so need and deserve.…/first-hugs-annual-fundrais…/c107728

These Boots Were Made For Walking

The love of some things is universal, and kids everywhere seem to love to try on and play around in the shoes of others. Our cute X.T. is no exception! Look how cute he is.

Everyone is getting ready for Christmas at First Hugs. Our amazing QiRui has purchased a Christmas tree and new toys for the children out of her own money. Stay tuned for pics of Christmas at First Hugs!

You can help us celebrate Christmas and the rest of the year but supporting our Annual Fundraiser. We have a long way to go to reach our goal and every donation big or small helps and is much appreciated.

Bald is Beautiful!

It is that time of year when illness often spreads quickly through orphanages. A recent illness left almost all of our babies quite sick a few weeks ago. In China, antibiotics are administered through IV's in their little heads, so now our babies are all sporting shaved heads!

Hospital stays are no fun, but everyone is feeling better and all of the babies are back at First Hugs. Some of our wonderful supporters donated some warm and fuzzy winter hats just in time to keep their sweet heads warm this winter while waiting for their hair to grow back.

Until their hair grows back though, we think they are very adorable bald.

It is so nice to see everyone looking happy and healthy again!

You can help keep our babies happy, healthy, loved and cared for by supporting our Annual Holiday Fundraiser. Please visit and share!

First Hugs Annual Holiday Fundraiser!

The holiday season is upon us and the First Hugs Annual Fundraiser is under way!

Life in an orphanage usually means that children do not get what they need to thrive, physically or emotionally. We are trying to change that by providing love and nurturing, good nutrition, and medical care to orphaned babies and toddlers,  many of which have special needs.

Our sweet little ones at XuChang are thriving in the First Hugs program, but we need your help to be able to continue to provide the love and care that they need. In our fundrasier you can help provide nutritious fruits and vegetables for our babies for a month, support our medical fund,  pay the salary for one of our incredible nannies for a month, or even sponsor one of these precious babies for a year.

Please support our fundraiser and help change the quality of life for children without the love and security of home and family this holiday season.
