Ming Has a $2,000 Grant!

Ming - Sponsored Star2Ming is our Sponsored Star for September!

Ming is an incredible 13 year old boy who needs to find his family before he ages out on his 14th birthday. He was hosted in the US this summer, and his host family had only the most positive things to share about their experience with him. Now that Ming has returned to China, we’re desperate to help him find a family that is ready to start their journey towards bringing him home forever.

Ming’s host family describes him as being a courageous and intelligent boy who has a very pleasant personality. Despite his medical needs and his prosthetic leg, Ming doesn’t back down from challenges that he’s faced with. Ming is very hopeful that his Forever Family will find him before he ages out. As our Sponsored Star for September, he currently has a $2,000 grant available towards his adoption fees. If you’re interested in learning more about Ming or viewing his file, visit our photo listing or contact our matching specialists 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!

      Hi Cathy,

      Based on China’s eligibility requirements for married couples, there can be no more than a 50 year age difference between the younger parent and the child that you’re adopting. Therefore, if you and your husband are open to adopting a child age 3+ you are certainly not too old! If you’re interested in learning more about our China adoption program, our matching specialists would be happy to speak with you. You can reach them at info@gwca.org or at (512)323-9595. Thank you!
