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.

Ekon just celebrated his 2nd birthday with his friends. There were lots of balloons and, much to his delight, cupcakes! It’s easy to celebrate Ekon and it is an honor to love and care for him—not to mention so much fun. It’s our prayer that this year his greatest need would be met and he would be able to enter a loving family through adoption!

Ekon made the cutest Christmas baby! He recently moved back to Maria’s Big House of Hope where we had fun celebrating Christmas by making Christmas ornaments and singing carols. Ekon is a happy little guy, and he brings us so much joy!

Thank you for praying for Ekon. He’s growing, crawling all over the place, and keeping his nannies busy as they try to keep up with him! Ekon has begun giving out hugs and kisses without prompting, and it melts our hearts. We always welcome them! He’s a loving and cuddly little boy.

Ekon is growing up quickly! Please be praying that he would gain strength and weight as he grows. We love Ekon and count it a privilege to work to help care for his needs.

Ekon loves to cuddle and be tickled. He is playful and sweet and it is our joy to watch him grow.

Ekon is doing well and has recently moved to our Care Center in Zhengzhou. His new nannies are already smitten, and we’re thankful his personality continues to shine.

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.
