Thank you for praying for Luigi. We have wonderful news that he recently joined his family through adoption! Please continue to pray for Luigi and his family as they walk through all of the transitions that accompany the adoption process. Pray for their time together to be full of joy and fun, as well as sweet bonding and comfort.

We can’t think of many things as cute as Luigi in a party hat. We recently celebrated his 2nd birthday. Luigi’s had a fun past few months—including a trip to McDonald’s. He loved the chicken nuggets, french fries, and mini ice cream cone! We love having the opportunity to take the children on fun outings.

There is a play kitchen in the playroom at Maria’s Big House of Hope, and you can often find Luigi in there pretending to cook food for his friends and nannies to enjoy! Luigi is adorable, and he has a very kind heart.

Luigi is growing up so quickly. He’s no longer a snuggly baby but a full-on active toddler, and he’s so much fun! He’s good at sharing toys and is very kind. We’re proud of Luigi and are so thankful to know and care for him.

Luigi’s personality is unfolding more and more each day, and we’re all smitten with him! His sweet baby walk and smiley-eyed grin melt our hearts. He loves to totter around playing with his friends, but he’s also a snuggle bug. He’ll nestle his head in your neck, and peek up every now and then for a kiss on his cheek.

We had a great time welcoming the fall season at Maria’s with a festival. The children had fun dressing up in costumes and collecting treats like candy, stickers, and bubbles from different caregivers around the room. Luigi was the cutest pumpkin we’ve ever seen!

Luigi can be very calm and also very playful. Whenever he’s not cuddling, he’s running around playing and laughing. One of his favorite things to do is to spin around as someone is holding him. It always makes him giggle!

Luigi is also very caring. He’s gentle with the babies in his room, and he’s very quick to share. His preschool teacher says he’s a great helper and is quick to help throw away trash or close the door.
