This past holiday season, we had so many wonderful children come from China to participate in our Winter Hosting program. While many of these children now have families that are working towards bringing them home forever, there are still a few kids that are waiting. Among these children are Cal and Mya. In order to give these two the best possible chance at finding their Forever Families, we have split our Sponsored Star grant for April between the two, so this month there are TWO Sponsored Stars! As such, any family that moves forward with either Cal or Mya, while they’re our Sponsored Stars, will receive a $1,000 grant towards their adoption fees!
Hi! My name is Cal and I am 9 years old. I have a growth delay and some urogenital needs but I don’t let this stop me from being a happy kiddo! I was hosted in the United States over the holidays but now I am back in China waiting for my forever family! I did very well with my host family and made great progress during my stay! I loved practicing my basketball shot and my host family said I was always up for the challenge of trying new and unfamiliar things! I am a very polite and well behaved kiddo that would do amazing in a family. Contact my friends at Great Wall if you’d like to review my file!
Hi there! My name is Mya and I just turned 11 years old. I was hosted in the United States over the Holidays but now I am back in China waiting for my good friends at Great Wall to help me find my Forever Family! I am a healthy girl with some general developmental delays. The doctor my Host Family took me to while I was in America told us that most of my delays are just due to the fact that I was born premature and that I have grown up in an orphanage. I sometimes pull out my hair as a coping mechanism when I am anxious, but this is definitely something that my Forever Family can help me with when they adopt me. While I was in the U.S. I quickly picked up on many English words and phrases. I also learned to sing a lot of English songs like “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” “Happy Birthday” and the “ABC’s.” I really liked my Host Family and I would often tell them that I loved them and would blow them kisses. Since it was Christmas time when I was in the United States I got to participate in several large activities like a Christmas Eve Church Service and I did very well in that kind of environment, saying “hello” to almost everyone I met (I’m very friendly)! There is so much more information about me in my file and from my time in America, so 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!
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!
