Meet Jackson

Jackson has the brightest smile, happiest disposition, and most tender heart of any child you could meet. We love him very much, and feel so privileged to be able to care for him during these formative years of his life.

Jackson was the coolest and most handsome astronaut at our Fall Festival, complete with a galaxy of stars painted on his face! Our party had a photo booth, balloon animals, lots of candy, and lots of fun—and Jackson enjoyed it all. Jackson can light up a room with his smiles and we can’t help but smile along with him. We are so thankful for the privilege of knowing and loving Jackson.

Jackson’s preschool classes are full of reading books and making crafts, but his favorite part is music time. He loves it when his teacher helps him play the little piano.

Summertime at Maria’s Big House of Hope means pool days. Jackson was a little unsure of playing in the water at first, but he quickly realized how much fun it was. He had a great time!

Jackson loves preschool. Lately, his favorite part is puppet time. Sometimes we blow bubbles and let the puppets pop them. Jackson giggles so much every time!

We love Jackson’s big, bright smile. For those around him, it is nearly impossible to do anything except smile along, and we’re all smitten with his dimples!

What a fun fall it’s been for Jackson! We celebrated the season with a festival where the children dressed up in costumes, listened to fun music, made a pumpkin craft, and got to go collect treats from different caregivers around the room. The kids loved it, and Jackson had such a fun costume! He dressed up as Mario complete with a stick-on moustache, hat, and best of all a “Mario Kart” that was made to attach to his wheelchair. He looked adorable!

Thank you for praying for Jackson and for helping to provide for his care through your sponsorship. He is such a sweet boy, and lights up any room he enters with his big, bright smile.

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.
