Meet Cheska

Cheska is often shy, but also very curious and observant, and she loves to discover new things. It is our joy to care for her as she grows and develops!

This past month we made Christmas ornaments with Cheska, and she grinned as we squished her finger into the clay dough! Her ornament hung proudly on our Christmas tree, and we loved seeing it up with all of the other children’s creations.

Cheska’s sweet personality recently captured the hearts of a team that visited Maria’s Big House of Hope, and she enjoyed lots of snuggles. We’re so thankful for Cheska, and it’s our joy to care for her.

The playroom at Maria’s Big House of Hope is bright, sunny, and full of fun sensory toys including swings and a ball pit. Cheska enjoys spending time in the playroom with her friends. When she’s in there, she gets excited, happy, and bouncy!

Cheska is growing stronger each day because of her daily physical therapy. Her physical therapist nannies work with her to strengthen her muscles, help her hold her head up, and be more independent. We’re very proud of her.

Last month we celebrated Cheska’s 4th birthday. She had a party with her friends amid lots of balloons! We love Cheska very much, and are thankful to be able to celebrate her.

Cheska has a darling button nose, and the sweetest pink lips. We love her very much, and are so grateful to be able to care for her.

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.
