At GWCA/CAN our waiting children deserve as much advocacy and support as possible. We know their forever family is also waiting for them, and our mission is to provide you with as much information on these kiddos as possible! Today, we are highlighting Molly and a sibling group: James, Andrea, and Johnny, from our Philippines program! They all need loving homes. Can you help us?!
