Contact Great Wall if you’d like to review my file!

 MagnoliaHi there! My name is Magnolia and I just turned 2 years old. I am a little cross-eyed and my doctor’s tell me I have something called cerebral palsy, but that doesn’t keep me from being a happy little girl! I enjoy walking in my walker and playing with toys. I like to clap my hands when I’m happy and I enjoy when my caretakers tease me and give me cuddles. I enjoy watching TV and listening to music. I am a quiet girl that gets along well with others. My file is a little outdated so my friends at Great Wall are working hard to learn more about me. You can contact my friends at Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting me! I hope my friends at Great Wall find my Forever Family soon! MarcusHi my name is Marcus and I am 6 years old!

My name is Quincy and I am one and a half years old. My doctor’s say I have something called hydrocephalus, but I don’t let that stop me from being a happy little boy! My file was prepared when I was less than a year old, so there isn’t a lot of recent information on how I am doing. As of when my file was prepared I could locate the direction of sounds and visually follow moving objects. I could pick up small things like beans using my fingers and thumb. I would respond when my name was called and I knew the difference between familiar people and strangers. I often smile and am found of listening to music and playing with toys like rattles. Since my file is a little outdated my friends at Great Wall are working hard to learn more about me. You can contact my friends at Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting me! I hope my friends at Great Wall find my Forever Family soon!MelanieHi there!  My name is Melanie and I am almost 2 years old! I have a heart condition but I don’t let this stop me from being a happy kiddo! I can stand and walk on my own and I have good sleeping and eating habits. I am described as being active, smiley and considerate. I enjoy colorful toys that make sound the most!  I also love my baby walker.  You can contact my friends at Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting me!  I hope my friends at Great Wall find my Forever Family soon!WilfredHi there! My name is Wilfred and I am one and a half years old. My arms and hands are a little different than some of my friends, but I don’t let that keep me from being a happy boy! My file was created when I was just 8 months old, so there isn’t a lot of current information on how I’m doing now. But at the time my file was prepared I was able to roll over from my back to stomach and could prop myself up using my forearms, and I was lifting my head and looking around on my own. When I’d hear a sound I’d turn around and see where it was coming from. Like most babies I was a big fan of sucking my fingers at that time. I could understand facial expressions of my caretakers and when I was praised for something I would smile, but when I was criticized for something I would pout. I really like being cuddled by my caretakers and when I someone calls my name I reach out my arms to them so they’ll pick me up. Since my file is a little outdated my friends at Great Wall are working hard to learn more about me. You can contact my friends at Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting me! I hope my friends at Great Wall find my Forever Family soon!SummerHi there! My name is Summer and I am almost 5 years old. My doctor’s say that I have something called cerebral palsy and clubbed feet, and that I’m a little cross-eyed, but I don’t let that keep me from being a happy little girl! I have been living with a foster family since I was two years old, so I have been receiving more one-on-one-care. I have good self-care skills like taking off my socks and shoes and feeding myself at meal times. I am a quiet, timid girl and I like doing thinks like drawing and reading books. I also enjoy listening to music and dancing. I like dogs and cats. I like playing outdoors with other children and I get along well with my foster family.

My name is Sunday and I just turned 2 years old. My doctor’s tell me I have something call Down’s Syndrome, but I don’t let that keep me from being a happy little girl! I started receiving regular rehabilitation services when I was very young and it has helped me get stronger over time. I enjoy my rehabilitation exercises and my caretakers say that I am very patient and good when I do them. I can understand a lot of what my caretakers are saying to me, like for example when my caretakers praise me for something I do I am very happy and smile, but when they tell me I’ve done something wrong I get sad and cry. I know how to sit up by myself, how to crawl, how to stand up by myself and I can walk when my caretaker holds one of my hands. I am babbling a lot and I am imitating my caretakers.

I hope my friends at Great Wall find my Forever Family soon!AndyHi there! My name is Andy and I just turned 6 years old. I am completely deaf in one ear and I might have a little hearing in my other ear, but I don’t have access to the technology or resources that kids with hearing loss in the United States do, so therefore my language skills are significantly delayed. I hope I find a Forever Family that can either help me to gain some more hearing or will help me learn sign language so that I can communicate my thoughts and feelings. I will probably not receive schooling in China due to my lack of hearing and because I live in a more rural area, so the only chance I have to get to go to school will be if I’m adopted by an American family. I tend to be shy and mostly interact with my foster parents because of my inability to communicate due to my hearing loss. I am an active little boy who likes to climb up high and explore the world around me! I like to play with toys and I especially like to play with my foster parents. I am a lovely, sweet boy my caretakers say, and they hope that I will find my Forever Family soon!  You can contact my friends at Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting me!  I hope my friends at Great Wall find my Forever Family soon!

GWCA’s February Sponsored Star – $2,000 Grant Available!

????????????????????????????????????Meet Camden, GWCA’s Sponsored Star for February!

Hi there! My name is Camden and I am 5 years old! I was born with CHD (TOF) and a cleft lip, but some nice doctors performed surgery to fix my cleft lip and I feel much better now! I haven’t had surgery to help with my heart yet, but I don’t let that hold me back. My doctors say that my condition is stable, so I can run around and play just like my friends! My file indicates that I’m currently in preschool and that I’m doing well. I don’t have any mobility delays and I’m on target cognitively!

As our Sponsored Star, Camden has a $2,000 grant available towards his adoption fees! If you are interested in seeing Camden’s file, or learning how you can be matched with him, visit our China Waiting Child Photo Listing or contact our China Matching Team today! 

What is a Sponsored Star?

On the 1st of each month, Great Wall China Adoption will feature one of the kiddos from our Orphanage Partnerships as our monthly “Sponsored Star!” As our Sponsored Star, that child will be provided a $2,000 grant towards their adoption fees! Each of the kiddos selected will be a Special Focus child,  meaning they have not found their Forever Family yet due to their age, or the degree of their needs. Together, we can find loving homes for these amazing kids!

We encourage any families interested in learning more about our Sponsored Star of the Month to visit our China Waiting Child Photo Listing, or contact our China Matching Specialists to learn how you can be matched today! Check back on the first of each month to meet the newest featured child!
