Jaela was a beautiful princess at our Fall Festival. We had a great time playing with the children, and Jaela beamed the whole time. She laughed at the way the paint brush tickled her face when her pretty green butterfly was being painted. It’s so fun to be able to create special moments like these for the children at Maria’s Big House of Hope!

September is a special month for Jaela because we get to celebrate her birthday! She just turned 6 years old, and we had a great time at her party. It was full of friends, balloons, and cake! Jaela is easy to love, and we are blessed to know her. Happy birthday, Jaela!

Jaela’s preschool classes are full of singing songs, story-time, crafts, and other sensory activities. She recently discovered that she loves the way playdough feels in her hands, and she and her teacher enjoy making different shapes together. Jaela is a bright spot in our lives, and we love her very much.

Jaela just lost one of her front teeth, and now her radiant smile is made even sweeter by a cute little window! She’s a happy girl and keeps us all smiling.

We had a blast celebrating Chinese New Year at Maria’s Big House of Hope. Together we colored pictures of chickens (it’s the Year of the Rooster), danced, and ate Chinese dumplings! Jaela had a great time, and had the whole room laughing as she giggled loudly at her friend playing the drums. Jaela is full of joy!

We’ve had a fun time welcoming autumn at Maria’s Big House of Hope! We celebrated the season with a fall festival where the children dressed up in costumes, listened to fun music, made a cute pumpkin craft, and got to go collect treats like candy, bubbles, and stickers from different caregivers around the room. The kids had a fun time, and Jaela dressed up as a princess complete with a fancy blue dress!

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.
