Recent Updates

Anthony was recently called back to his guardian orphanage. We miss his joyful spirit and sweet giggle. We are so blessed to have been able to care for him. Please continue to pray for Anthony in this transition, and that he will soon have the opportunity to know the nurture of a loving family through adoption.

Anthony celebrated the holidays with his nannies and friends, clapping along to Christmas carols and enjoying delicious treats like candy canes and marshmallows. We are honored to care for Anthony, and we are praying that the new year brings him joy. Please join us as we pray for Anthony to soon have the opportunity to enter a loving family through adoption!

Anthony is ready to give a helping hand to a friend or nanny at any moment, so his nannies have begun to give him little jobs around the room—passing out snacks to his friends or helping clean up toys. Afterward, the nannies praise him and tell him what a great helper he is. We are so proud of Anthony’s kindness and thoughtful attitude.

Anthony recently turned 2 years old! He celebrated by enjoying cupcakes and playing with his friends. He especially loved the frosting, and we loved joining him in his party. We are so proud of Anthony, and while celebrating with him, we’re reminded of the precious gift these children are.

Anthony likes anything with wheels! Whether he’s driving a toy car or cycling on a tricycle, Anthony is on cloud nine. He recently started preschool—much to his excitement. He would often listen to the older children on their way to preschool and long to join, and we are so excited he’s now able to! We know Anthony will thrive, and we can’t wait to see all that he’ll learn.

Anthony’s nurses say he is a big help when they do rounds. He will often visits other rooms with them, and he likes to hold their clipboard and help check in on the other babies. We love watching Anthony grow and learn!
