Ekon had the chance to participate in a pool day! You can see by the excitement on his face how much he enjoyed it. He loved splashing in the water and would burst out in laughter when it would get on his face or head. We feel blessed to share in these moments of joy with children like Ekon.

Ekon is full of life and giggles. He is so much fun, and he keeps his nannies smiling. He is brave; facing not only life’s challenges, but also diving into ball pits, jumping high on the trampoline, and sliding down the tallest slide. He is fearless in every way. We are proud of his courage, strength, and resilience. Ekon is wonderful, and we love him very much.

Ekon just celebrated his fourth birthday! His friends joined him at his party with yummy cake and lots of balloons. We are proud of the ways he has grown this year. He is a kind friend and a courageous boy. Our greatest hope for Ekon is that he would soon know the love of a family through adoption.

Ekon had so much fun while Christmas caroling! He loved feeling the guitar strings and drumming on them with his hands. Once the singing started he couldn’t help but clap and cheer along to every song. We love spending the holidays together and making these sweet memories with him.

Ekon has a big heart with a lot of love for his friends. His playfulness always gets his friends giggling, and we love to see their sweet relationships unfold. They love to make silly faces and come up with new games. Ekon holds a kind of joy we all admire, and we pray he will soon have the opportunity to share his joy with a loving family through adoption.

Ekon loves the playground more than anything else. He runs around as fast as he can, and he’s a champ at climbing all the way to the top of the play fixture’s stairs. Ekon likes to slide down the slide and race his friends while his nannies cheer him on! If he’s not on the big play-set, then Ekon is riding on the toy cars or jumping on the trampoline. We are proud of Ekon, and love to watch him play.
