We are SO happy to share that 12 more kiddos from our China Waiting Child adoption program have joined their new Forever Families just on time for Father’s Day – what a great way to start our week of honoring adoptive dads! Congratulations from all of us at Great Wall China Adoption!
While many of these kids have just met their new families for the very first time, others came to the US previously to participate in our Orphan Hosting program, and have been eagerly awaiting this reunion! We are so happy that everyone made it home safe and sound, and we can’t wait to see what these amazing kids’ futures hold!
Our Orphan Hosting program provides older, special needs orphans with the opportunity to spend 4-5 weeks in America with a family. During this time, the family welcomes them into their hearts and home, either taking the first steps towards adopting them or advocating on their behalf with the hope of finding them a Forever Family. The children in our Orphan Hosting program are considered more difficult to place due to the fact that they are older and generally have a need of some sort. Without hosting, their files are typically sit on China’s Shared Listing untouched, and overlooked in favor of younger children. By bringing these kiddos here for our hosting program, families are able to meet them and see how they fit into their family dynamic, eliminating the uncertainty that some families feel is associated with older child adoption. This program has changed many children’s lives, and we are so incredibly happy to see more and more of these host kiddos joining loving families forever.
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
