Nadine is full of joy and she keeps us laughing! She had a jolly Christmas season full of fun. She loved playing with the tinsel and ornaments in our Christmas photo shoot, and she starred as a lamb during our Nativity scene where she was all smiles!

Nadine loved celebrating the season at our Fall Festival where she dressed up as a fairy—complete with wings! She looked darling, and she had a great time at the photo booth, snacking on candy, and playing with balloon animals. Most of all, she was enthralled with the lanterns hanging from the ceiling!

Nadine loved going swimming at our end of summer party. And she looked adorable in her stripes and sunglasses. Though she enjoyed swimming and splashing around, eating watermelon was her favorite part!

Nadine is growing up! She has transitioned from baby to toddler in what feels like no time at all. Nadine is very playful, and loves the slide in the playroom! She’s growing bigger and stronger each day, and we’re so grateful to be able to care for her.

Nadine had a lot of fun at our Easter egg hunt. It was sweet watching her and her nanny hunt for eggs together. Nadine looked precious in her bunny ears, and she loved eating the sweets inside the eggs!

We love Nadine and her sweet kisses! She gives them often and they’re usually followed by a giggle. Nadine is getting stronger and loves to pull up and stand on her own.

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.
