Kiah was a beautiful angel in our annual Christmas nativity. She is a reminder of the hope and joy of the season, and we are grateful to know and love her. We ask you to join us as we pray for her in this upcoming year!

Kiah loves school, and one of her greatest joys is looking through books. Touch-and-feel books are the kind she enjoys most—feeling the pages with her hands and even with her feet! Watching Kiah discover the sweet world around her makes us abundantly happy.

Kiah’s love for people is infectious. She gives the absolute best hugs—wrapping her arms and legs around you as she squeezes tightly. If you spin her around, she throws her head back and belly laughs until you stop spinning! It is our joy to care for Kiah, and we delight in her sweet hugs!

Kiah loves pool day. She knows exactly what to do when she sees the pool—immediately dive in and start swimming like a mermaid. When it’s pool day, Kiah loves to show off her best water skills. Her fascination with swimming and her sense of bravery are sure to make anyone smile!

Kiah thoroughly enjoyed her recent trip to McDonald’s where she discovered her love of hamburgers, chicken nuggets, and especially french fries! She loved it all so much that her friends even shared their’s with her. Kiah is an absolute joy, and we had so much fun on this special outing with her.

No one has ever enjoyed birthday cake as much as Kiah did on her birthday! We celebrated Kiah turning 8 years old with a sweet party full of her friends in preschool. She ended the party feeling celebrated and full of cupcakes with hot pink icing. Kiah is a joy, full of spunk and tenacity, and we love being able to care for her. Please pray with us that Kiah would soon have the opportunity to be celebrated in the love of a family.

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.
