Hope squealed when we asked if she wanted to paint with us! She giggled and laughed the whole time she held the paintbrush, and her work was beautiful! We love getting to do creative projects with her.

We passed out candy canes as we sang Christmas carols to each of the rooms at Maria’s this Christmas, and Hope absolutely loved eating them. She also had fun squishing her finger into her homemade ornament! We see so much joy in her smile, and it made our Christmas season even brighter.

Hope was the cutest Minnie Mouse at our Fall Festival! She looked adorable all dressed up, and she wore the biggest smile as she paraded through all the different booths. She especially liked getting her face painted with a big, red heart!

We recently celebrated Hope turning 9 years old, and we were so excited to be able to celebrate her! Hope radiates happiness and light, and her bright smile is full of joy. Happy birthday, sweet Hope. We love you!

Hope never fails to make us smile. She has a big heart and is full of joy. This summer, Hope’s days have been filled with new friends who have visited on Show Hope trips, and walks outside enjoying the sunshine!

We’re thankful for a great physical therapy team here at Maria’s, and Hope has been enjoying working on standing with the help of some new equipment. We are grateful to be able to provide her with these opportunities to grow stronger.

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.
