Meet Ekon

Ekon is cuddly and playful. He is dearly loved by those around him. Ekon has wise eyes, and sweet baby dimples on his fingers. We are so thankful for the opportunity to love and care for his needs during this formative period of his life.


Recent Updates

Ekon is really expanding his play and it’s adorable to watch. We are impressed by his dexterity and determination. He loves to build with blocks and roll balls back and forth with a friend. He’s inquisitive and spends a lot of time studying toys to see how they work. We pray he will soon have the opportunity to share play and discoveries in the nurture and love of a family through adoption.

Ekon loves exploring the outdoors. His nanny takes him to the playground where he can run around and climb up the stairs. He was a little nervous on the slide at first, but with the encouragement of his nanny, he can now go down all by himself. He’s so brave, and we are very proud of the mountains Ekon has climbed.

Ekon recently celebrated turning 3 years old. We are so proud of who he is becoming as his little personality develops. His tenacity encourages us daily. For his celebration he enjoyed cupcakes with his friends, blowing bubbles, and dancing. We are praying big prayers for his future, and we are honored to care for him. Happy Birthday, Ekon!

We love to celebrate the holidays with Ekon. He reflects the joy of the season, and we adore him. Decorating the tree was one of his favorite activities, and seeing his face light up as he placed the ornaments was a delight for everyone. One of our greatest hopes is for Ekon to know the love of a family through adoption. Will you join us in this prayer?

Ekon is growing up big and strong, and we have been so encouraged by his determination! He loves to keep up with the older boys in his room. He’s started to mimic their every move and runs after them in the playground—helping push them on the swing or hopping on a toy car to chase them down the sidewalk. Still, he always finds time to hurry back to his nannies for some sweet snuggles!

Ekon has a smile that can brighten anyone’s day. He recently discovered how much he loves birthday cake at one of his friend’s birthday parties. The joy he poured out at the party was contagious. Ekon reminds us how important it is to find contentment in the small things of life. Please join us in praying that he would soon have the opportunity to enter the love and nurture of a family through adoption.
