I met “Kramer” in China last year, but we didn’t have his child information file to advocate for him at the time. Now we do, and I’m excited to share more about him. It’s amazing he hasn’t already been matched with a family because he is incredibly sweet, silly and fun. Continue reading “Kramer Needs a Family!”

Pablo is an affectionate 3-year-old who needs the love that only a permanent family can provide! He is good at expressing his emotions and is learning how to use words to communicate with his caregivers. He is shy with strangers at first, but once he warms up to them he likes interacting with them and playing games. Continue reading “Pablo Needs a Family!”
We know there have been a lot of changes in adoption recently.
Country programs are changing their eligibility requirements, the profile of children coming home is changing and it is easy to feel overwhelmed and give up.
One thing that isn’t changing, though, is the need. There are still so many kids who have been deprived of the love and protection that only a permanent family can provide. Each child is waiting for a family, and our mission is to find loving parents for those children.
Could you be the family that a child is waiting for?
If you are just in the beginning stages of adoption and aren’t sure what to do next — or if you are ready to move forward — talk to our adoption advisor, Caitlin Howe! She can give you free information with no strings attached — helping you learn more about adoption or guiding you through the first steps of the process.
Beautiful and kind, Mia makes friends easily — maybe because she is always willing to help out when there’s a need. Right now, Mia has an urgent need of her own. On September 6, she will age out of the adoption process. Mia needs a family to come forward before that happens! Continue reading “Mia Needs a Family!”
The sun is beating down on us, and if it weren’t for the straw hat they gave me I would probably be a puddle. Of course, the kids aren’t content just sitting in the shade drinking from a fresh coconut, so what are we doing? Running around playing soccer and trying to avoid the sharp metal hiding in the grass. I’m the “monkey,” so I am in the middle trying to intercept the ball as they kick it around the circle laughing. I tell myself I am going easy on them, but like I said, it is quite hot and they are much more used to the heat than I am.
As we play, my mind leaves the game and starts to realize the significance of this moment. These aren’t just any kids in SE Asia. They have no idea who I am, but I recognize these kids the moment I see them. Continue reading “Monkey in the Middle”
