Let The JOY Begin – New Program Launches

The holidays are upon us and GWCA/CAN is proud to announce the launching of our newest program, the J.O.Y. Initiative (Journey for Orphaned Youth)

Our J.O.Y. (Journey for Orphaned Youth) Advocacy Initiative is a special, one-week program that occurs three times a year. A small group of families will travel together to China to meet a child waiting for a forever family. It’s an amazing chance to connect with a child, see the world the children live in, and create an amazing opportunity for a forever family. Families interested in the JOY Advocacy Initiative should have a strong intention of adoption or established interest in advocating for orphans.

Much like our Home Orphan Hosting China Program, the children in our JOY Initiative have often lived in orphanages most of their lives. Though usually well-cared for, these children have almost never experienced a sense of family and have lacked access to basic needs like general medical care, good nutrition, and education.

The children in our JOY Initiative are extra-special! These are children who may not be eligible for hosting either due to age or need, and families are able to meet their potential forever child through this experience. Every opportunity we provide to our children from China is another chance for them to find the love, comfort, and permanency a family can provide.

We are currently seeking families to join us on our Inaugural JOY Initiative Trip this Spring. Visit our photo listing today. Families interested in learning more can contact Cayce or Shannon via email or by phone, 512-323-9595 Ext 3101 to learn more.

Laney

Laney is a precious little girl from China that just turned 2 years old!  Her updated medical information states that she has Apert syndrome, as well as limb differences of her hands and feet. She recently traveled to Singapore to receive incredible surgeries to reconstruct her fingers and assist with her skull development, and she has made a fantastic recovery!

Laney’s caregivers describe her as an active, charming, and lovely girl. She is extremely affectionate and loves to be held and hugged by her nannies and nurses. Please reach out to Great Wall if you would like to learn more about adopting little Laney!
