Lilyana is doing well and is becoming stronger by the day. She practices getting up on her knees to play, and she’s so proud of herself whenever she accomplishes something new. Her beaming smile and giggle light up the room, and we feel privileged to watch her grow.

We’re so thankful that Lilyana has the opportunity to benefit from physical therapy. She’s determined and playful while she works hard, and her physical therapist praises her happy spirit. Their sessions usually end in lots of giggles.

Lilyana recently turned 6 years old. We love to celebrate special milestones like these for the children in our care, and we were excited to celebrate sweet Lilyana. She looked adorable in her purple birthday hat, and she devoured her strawberry cupcake. We are thankful to have the opportunity to love and care for Lilyana.

Lilyana loves to explore new textures and toys! She enjoyed the addition of a Christmas tree in preschool, and had so much fun feeling all the different ornaments. Will you pray with us for Lilyana as she enters into the new year?

Lilyana has started preschool, and we are overjoyed to have her join in. So far her favorite parts are snacktime and sitting next to her teacher as they read books together. We are excited to see how Lilyana will blossom in class!

We are so excited to introduce you to Lilyana! She is a cheerful girl with a dazzling smile. Lilyana recently transitioned to Maria’s Big House of Hope, and we are so grateful to be able to care for her.

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.
