Jaela is a sweet, smiley little girl. She loves to be held and cuddled, and really enjoys time outside. It is our joy and privilege to care for her.

Jaela finds joy in many activities, but one of her favorite things to do is to spin and dance in her wheelchair. She gets excited when you ask her if she wants to go for a ride, and once you start to spin her she laughs uncontrollably while everyone beams and cheers her on. Jaela brings so much light to the lives of those around her.

Jaela loves anything big and loud. Whether it’s her teacher banging on a drum set, a balloon popping, or her nannies being loud and silly, you will hear the unmistakable sound of Jaela’s belly laugh soon after. We love Jaela’s sense of humor, and we take delight in knowing the details of her personality as she grows and develops.

We are so happy to see Jaela’s smiling face in our care again! Jaela recently returned to our care, and we are thrilled. Her nannies can’t get enough of her sweet snuggles. We missed her belly laugh and infectious joy, and we’re blessed to care for her again.

Jaela returned to her guardian orphanage, and everyone is missing her sweet dimpled smile, her wonderful belly laugh, and her snuggles. Jaela is an amazing little girl, and we ask that you join with us in praying for her transition, and that she would soon have the opportunity to know the love of a family through adoption.

It’s warming up in Luoyang, and the children are loving playing with water toys! Jaela loves to splash and play with toys in the water. We’re excited for summer and pool days!

Jaela loves preschool. She loves any sort of sensory play, especially painting and Play-Doh. Her preschool teacher says she is a delight each day!

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.
