On assignment in China with her husband and family in 2003, Kay Bratt took up the cause of China’s forgotten orphans. She volunteered in a Chinese orphanage for four years. Silent Tears – A Journey of Hope in a Chinese Orphanage is a first hand account of her time there. In her memoir, Kay describes the life of the orphans she encounters and the emotional struggle she faced while trying to advocate for them.
Now back in America, Kay Bratt continues her work with China’s orphans, raising awareness wherever she goes. She was honored with the Chinese 2006 Pride of the City award for her humanitarian work. She is the founder of the Mifan Mommy Club – an online organization that supplies rice to children in Chinese orphanages, and she is an active volunteer with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates.)
