My name is Jian and I am 10 years old! I was hosted in the United States over the holidays but now I am back in China waiting for my forever family! My doctor’s say that I have thalassemia, but that doesn’t slow me down! My host mother describes me as a happy kiddo who is very clever, respectful, and kind! While I was here in the U.S., I had a great time swimming, rock climbing, and spending time with my host brother. I even got to have my first birthday party while I was here! My favorite part of the party was blowing out the candles and having everyone sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to me. I am a sweet kiddo who would love to come back to the United States.

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 enjoy playing outside and with my friends in the play room. 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!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!
