Leila's Story


Cerebral Palsy

Meet Leila

Leila is full of smiles and giggles and is happiest in someone’s arms. She loves to swing and be bounced on your lap. We are grateful to have the privilege of caring for her.


Recent Updates

Leila recently returned to her guardian orphanage, and she is already greatly missed. We are thankful for the blessing Leila brought to Maria’s and those who met her while in care. She carries hope and resilience with her wherever she goes, and we are praying for her transition to be one marked with great comfort and love.

Leila is able to attend preschool throughout the week, and she has the biggest smile on her face during class. Her favorite song is “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes,” and she giggles and giggles as her teacher points to each spot.

We are happy to introduce you to Leila! She brings a lot of joy to our lives and we are honored to care for her. She loves to be held, bounced, and swung in our arms. Please join us in praying that Leila will soon have the opportunity to enter the love of a family through adoption.

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.
