We are so incredibly happy to announce that two of the kiddos from our very first JOY program have been matched with Forever Families! Congratulations to Josiah and Amelia from all of us at GWCA and CAN!
Much like our traditional Orphan Hosting programs, our JOY program strives to find loving and permanent homes for the children that are currently with our Orphanage Partnerships. Josiah and Amelia both spent one week exploring the city and doing fun activities with our JOY families and a few other children from their orphanage. Once our JOY families came back, they worked to help advocate on their behalf to help them find forever families, and we are so happy to see how successful their advocacy has been!
We are currently advocating for a few other kiddos who participated in our JOY program earlier this year. Each of these kiddos spent time with American families who were able to learn more about both their personalities and their special needs. This is incredibly helpful for adoptive families, as it provides them with information that may not have been included in their file. If you are interested in learning more about the JOY kids that we’re advocating for or viewing their files, visit our China Waiting Child photo listing, or contact one of our China matching specialists today!
Fiona is a precious little one who is about to turn 3 years old! She was born with Down’s Syndrome and a heart defect known as a PFO. When she was 1 years old, she would sit up on her own, crawl and babble. At the age of 18 months she could stand up with a little support and was babbling and saying simple words. Fiona has been receiving rehabilitation services and she seems to be doing great! She is walking for longer distances while holding onto some support. Fiona is described as being compliant, cute and affectionate. Although her speech is slightly delayed, communication does not seem to be an obstacle for her. Contact one of our matching specialists today if you’d like to learn more about Fiona!
