About Rob

Who am I? My name is Rob, originally from Dublin, Ireland but currently living in the UK, finishing my training as an Occupational Therapist. One day I hope to live in China supporting services for children with disabilities.

I have been to China 7 times to volunteer with various orphan care projects. My first trip was in 2011 for just two weeks and my most recent (seventh) was for seven months in 2015/16. I've helped with summer camps for orphans, supported government orphanages and helped at NGO foster homes for orphans with special and medical needs. I have had the privilege of being a small part in various children being adopted. This blog is an account of those trips and experiences, dedicated to many children who have impacted my life and changed it for the better.

All 4 children in these photos have now been adopted into loving families!


  1. Hi Rob! Lorna here. This blog is, truly, amazing. Firstly, what an epic name and Proverb! It is so exciting to see all the things you have done - they are all the things I one day hope to do. I can only pray that God has "humanitarian aid + other countries" (hopefully China, please) in His plan for me! And I aspire to one day having nearly half the amazing things on my blog as you do on yours - mine is currently a very boring advocate for my life's ambition. I'd better get editing... XD

  2. Hi Rob,
    I just came upon your blog via the advocacy thread on RQ. We are in the process of adopting a little girl with SN from China- we will be traveling in June or July. We can't wait to bring her home!
    I wanted to encourage you in your obedience and trust in Jesus as you give of yourself to bless those who are very dear to the heart of God. Thank you for what you are doing- your willingness to give of yourself and your time and your heart. I am so impressed with young people like you who truly understand what it means to put the needs of others before their own. Way to go- I'm cheering for you, along with all of heaven.
    I, too, hope that dear Matthew, finds a family soon. He seems like a wonderful young man- and very deserving of a family.
    Blessing to you, Rob.
