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!

Cheska left our care to return to her guardian orphanage. Please join us in praying for Cheska as she makes this transition. It has been a blessing to care for her, and she will be dearly missed as we remember her sweet snuggles. As Cheska comes to mind, please also pray that she would have the opportunity to experience the love and nurture of a family through adoption in the very near future!

Cheska was one happy little girl on Easter Sunday as we spent time with all the children eating candies! We played with stickers and eggs, and Cheska giggled as she was tickled. What a joy to celebrate the hope of Easter with these children!

Cheska likes to be held, so she enjoys physical therapy where the PT nanny will hold her in her lap, massage her muscles, and work with her to become stronger. We’re so thankful for our physical therapy team!

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!

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.
