Alden is a wonderful little boy with the sweetest smiling eyes. He loves his nannies and is cuddly and playful.


Recent Updates

One of Alden’s favorite parts of the day is snack time! He recently snacked on some brownies with his friends, and he ended up with icing all over his face and a big smile to go with it! He’s such a cutie!

Alden has an endless amount of energy and enthusiasm. We love his bright and sunny personality. He follows the older boys in his room around and learns from them as they sing and play. Alden’s sweet smile captures the hearts of anyone who knows him!

Alden has grown so big and is running around everywhere! He is learning so much, talking a lot, and can be quite cheeky. He loves the outdoors, and when he’s in his room he likes to look out the window to see what’s going on outside. The playground is his favorite, and he especially enjoys sliding down the slide and swinging on the swings.

This summer the children in Beijing began having music classes in their playrooms, and they’ve loved it! The children and their nannies have fun playing instruments and dancing around. Alden likes to hold a drumstick in one hand and a maraca in the other, and make as much noise as possible!

Alden is walking around like a big boy and keeping up with the older kids in his room with no problem. He recently transitioned to the Beijing Care Center and is doing great there. Alden loves playing in the ball pit in his new room—especially sliding down the slide!

We just celebrated Alden’s first birthday. He looked adorable in his birthday hat, and he thoroughly enjoyed his birthday cupcake. His face was covered in icing for most of the party!

The child profiles listed on this website are solely shared in an effort to provide our donors and sponsors with a glimpse of the unique beauty and dignity inherent to each child who comes into our care. They are in no way intended to be a complete or up-to-date substitute for referral information given by a licensed adoption agency. Out of a desire to honor and protect each child's privacy, we focus our sponsorship reports on the positive aspects of the child’s daily life, and not the serious medical challenges many of the children face, as this type of information is confidential and only available through officially sanctioned adoption channels.
