We are so happy for all of these children and their new Forever Families! The wait is over, welcome home!

9 New Kids on the Block

DavisHello there! My name is Davis, and I am 12 years old. My medical file says that I have hydrocephalus, but advocates in China say that it actually was a brain injury. I was discovered after surviving a flood when I was three years old, and advocates believe that my head injury was from the disaster. After the flood, my caregivers helped me to become independent and take care of myself! In February of 2015 I started having trouble walking, and my doctors learned that I had a benign brain tumor. My tumor was removed and I am feeling much better! I’m working really hard with my teachers in rehabilitation and seem to be doing really well. My caregivers all seem to adore me, and they describe me as courageous and happy. They also say that I have a very gentle spirit. My friends at Great Wall have a lot of information about me, so please reach out to them if you’d like more information!

DallasHi there! My name is Dallas and I am 2 and a half years old. I have nystagmas, which means my eyes sometimes have involuntary movements, and I have some general muscle weakness, but I don’t let that keep me from being a happy little boy! I am a shy, quiet little boy, who smiles a lot and likes being teased by my caretakers. I am receiving physical therapy so that I can become big and strong! I like listening to music and playing with toys. I get along with other children and I am close with my caretakers. Since my file is a little out of date my friends at Great Wall are working hard to learn more about me.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!IsaacHi there! My name is Isaac and I am 11 years old. One of my feet has a toe on it that looks a little different than some of my friends, but other than that I am a healthy boy! One of my friend’s at Great Wall visited me in China earlier this year and she would love to speak with prospective families about me! I am in 4th grade in a regular school and I am performing at an average level in school compared with my peers. I tend to be more introverted but I get very excited about playing sports! My favorite sport is soccer! I am living in an orphanage with one of my good friends Colt, who is also available for adoption through Great Wall. I am described as being a helpful little boy and my caretakers appreciate when I help them with chores around the orphanage. I have told my caregivers that I do want to be adopted by an American family. 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!

TWO New Sponsored Stars!

Sponsored Stars for April!

This past holiday season, we had so many wonderful children come from China to participate in our Winter Hosting program. While many of these children now have families that are working towards bringing them home forever, there are still a few kids that are waiting. Among these children are Cal and Mya. In order to give these two the best possible chance at finding their Forever Families, we have split our Sponsored Star grant for April between the two, so this month there are TWO Sponsored Stars! As such, any family that moves forward with either Cal or Mya, while they’re our Sponsored Stars, will receive a $1,000 grant towards their adoption fees!

Meet Cal

Mr S dressed up-001Hi! My name is Cal and I am 9 years old. I have a growth delay and some urogenital needs but I don’t let this stop me from being a happy kiddo! I was hosted in the United States over the holidays but now I am back in China waiting for my forever family! I did very well with my host family and made great progress during my stay! I loved practicing my basketball shot and my host family said I was always up for the challenge of trying new and unfamiliar things! I am a very polite and well behaved kiddo that would do amazing in a family. Contact my friends at Great Wall if you’d like to review my file!

As our Sponsored Star,  Cal has a $1,000 grant available towards his adoption fees! If you are interested in seeing Cal’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!

Meet Mya

MyaHi there! My name is Mya and I just turned 11 years old. I was hosted in the United States over the Holidays but now I am back in China waiting for my good friends at Great Wall to help me find my Forever Family! I am a healthy girl with some general developmental delays. The doctor my Host Family took me to while I was in America told us that most of my delays are just due to the fact that I was born premature and that I have grown up in an orphanage. I sometimes pull out my hair as a coping mechanism when I am anxious, but this is definitely something that my Forever Family can help me with when they adopt me. While I was in the U.S. I quickly picked up on many English words and phrases. I also learned to sing a lot of English songs like “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “Happy Birthday” and the “ABC’s.” I really liked my Host Family and I would often tell them that I loved them and would blow them kisses. Since it was Christmas time when I was in the United States I got to participate in several large activities like a Christmas Eve Church Service and I did very well in that kind of environment, saying “hello” to almost everyone I met (I’m very friendly)!  There is so much more information about me in my file and from my time in America, so 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!

As our Sponsored Star, Mya has a $1,000 grant available towards her adoption fees! If you are interested in seeing Mya’s file or learning how you can be matched with her, visit our China Waiting Child Photo Listing or contact our China Matching Team today!
