Meet Laranda

Laranda is interactive and playful, and is happiest in someone’s arms. She’s also spunky and bouncy, and we’re so grateful to be able to care for her.


Recent Updates

Laranda recently helped us celebrate her nurse’s birthday! She loved playing with all the balloons, surrounding herself with them and beaming! Laranda loves her nurse very much, and had the best time celebrating her.

Laranda loves music, especially musical toys. Whenever a friend or nanny is playing with a toy that makes music, she’ll quickly go over to them in her walker. We love playing with Laranda and watching her interests blossom!

Laranda looked adorable in her Christmas antlers! She wore the biggest smile as she danced and giggled along to Christmas carols. Laranda’s joy is wonderful, and we loved celebrating Christmas with her!

We see so much joy in Laranda’s beautiful, vibrant eyes and bright smile. Laranda can often be found exploring the room in her walker, causing smiles wherever she goes! She is delighted in by all of her nannies, and we love her.

Earlier this year Laranda moved to our Care Center in Jiaozuo and she is doing well. Her nannies and nurses describe her as a happy and beautiful girl with a big smile and sweet laugh. The older she gets the stronger she grows, and she is able to sit by herself more and more.

Laranda’s favorite part of preschool is story time. She enjoys curling up in her teacher’s lap and looking at all the pictures as they read together.

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.
