We have the best news to share with you! John recently joined his family through adoption and is now safely settling in at home with them. It’s such a joy to celebrate a child entering their family, and we are over the moon with excitement for John! As you think of him and his family, please pray that their transition together would be marked with great peace, love, and connection. We love you, John!

John is one of the most playful little boys we know, and one of his favorite things to do is to swim and play in the water! Lucky for him, his summer was full of pool days. And just recently he was able to go to a big swimming pool at a park nearby. John’s enthusiasm for life is contagious, and we love to watch him play and have fun!

In May we celebrated John’s 6th birthday. Soon after his birthday party, John got to enjoy one of his favorite things—pool day! We’re so grateful to celebrate another year with John, and we are full of hope for what the coming year will hold for him.

Recently, John’s preschool class was learning about emotions by drawing them on faces. John surprised everyone by drawing a moustache on his paper and then a matching one on his face! He keeps us laughing, and we love him very much.

John is growing up fast. We celebrated Chinese New Year at Maria’s Big House of Hope with a party full of laughter and jiǎozi (Chinese dumplings). John was the life of the party! He kept us all entertained by playing the drums and parading around with a paper dragon.

John is having a great time playing ball outside with older kids a few times a week. He’s getting really good at kicking the ball, and he’s so proud of himself! His smile is brighter than the sun, and we love him very much.

We had a great time welcoming the Fall season at Maria’s with a festival. The children had fun dressing up in costumes and collecting treats like candy, stickers, and bubbles from different caregivers around the room. John was a very handsome cowboy complete with a hat, chaps, a vest, and a badge! He had such a great time.
