Recent Updates

Maitland recently returned to his guardian orphanage. Please be praying for him as he makes this transition, and continue to pray with us that he would very soon have the opportunity to know the love and permanency of a family through adoption.

Thank you for continuing to pray for Maitland! It recently snowed in Zhengzhou and the kids had a white Thanksgiving! It was beautiful, and the children had such a fun time playing in the snow. They looked adorable in their puffy warm clothes.

Last month, we celebrated Maitland’s 2nd birthday! He had a great day full of balloons, party horns, birthday crowns, cake, and the company of a lot of friends. Maitland is such a wonderful little boy, and it was our joy to celebrate with him. We love him very much.

Maitland spent some time at Maria’s Big House of Hope earlier this summer and was quick to make new friends. His sweet and friendly personality are such gifts to those around him.

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.
