Laranda is a fighter, and she climbs mountains like so many other children we have the honor of caring for. We are proud of how much Laranda continues to learn. Her nannies are just as proud, and it’s clear how much they love her. We can’t wait to see what autumn has in store for her!

Laranda just celebrated her fifth birthday! We are proud of how much she has accomplished in the time we’ve known her. Her nannies absolutely adore her, and so do we. Her beautiful smile and the sparkle in her eyes are too cute for words. We’re honored to love and care for Laranda as she enters another year.

Laranda’s nanny is a lot of fun and loves to play. She likes to do Laranda’s hair and tells her how beautiful she is every day. We are grateful for the opportunity to help provide intentional, loving care for children like Laranda. She loves her nanny and we are thankful to see such wonderful attachment.

Laranda is headed into spring with a lot of joy. She’s been able to feel the fresh air and her nannies have introduced her to new toys. She especially likes the ball with jingle-bells inside. We feel blessed to welcome the spring season with Laranda!

Laranda is such a delight to be around. Her giggles and bubbly personality are just two of the reasons we love her. It’s fitting that the jingle bells are one of her favorite toys in preschool. She beams with excitement when you hand them to her, and then she gleefully shakes and jingles them. Will you pray with us that she will soon have the opportunity to know the love and permanency of a family through adoption?

Laranda enjoyed spending the holidays making new crafts in preschool. She had the opportunity to make handprint ornaments in class with her teacher, and delighted in the feeling of her hand squishing into the dough. It is a joy to see Laranda explore new things!
