Red Thread Charities hosted a potluck picnic at a park in Mpls while our friends from China were here. Volunteers from previous trips and new volunteers for this October's trip were here to meet and greet the ladies. A very special surprise were the attendance of some children who had at one time lived in the care of these ladies, walking in and being immediately recognized by their former nannies. It made more than one of us shed a tear.

Please refer to our website at redthreadcharities.org for information on how you can help. I am proud to serve as medical director on the board of Red Thread Charities. Thank you, Jane Steinmetz
