    About Mother’s Choice
    Since 1987 in Hong Kong, Mother’s Choice was a place where pregnant girls could stay until they gave birth to their children. A centre with social workers was set up for the girls so that they could receive counseling and support during and after pregnancy. In 1993, Mother's Choice has extended its services to helping children who are in need of foster care and small group homes.

    In 1995 Mother’s Choice established a presence, known as Mother’s Love, in Mainland China. Located in Nanning, Guangxi Province, China, Mother’s Love has cared for over 1,400 parentless children since 1995. Over the years, Mother’s Love has come to enjoy a reputation within China for pioneering models for orphanage care, foster care, special needs care and adoption, and for training hundreds of local workers and assisting other Chinese institutions to carry out this work themselves.
