About The Book

Unseen Tears is a poignant, but hopeful, journey through the lives and challenges of orphans and orphanages in China.

Even in the midst of overwhelming odds and very limited resources, there are people committed to supporting and transforming the lives of these most vulnerable children.

Set amidst the complexities and contradictions that is modern China, Unseen Tears draws on Beau Sides’ nearly 50 trips and teaching tours to China to paint an accurate picture of the challenges - and a glimpse of encouragement - for China’s orphans.

    ~ Robin Cronin, Adoptive Parent
