We are so happy that Shay was recently able to join his family! We believe every child deserves a family, and we’re thrilled that Shay is now home with his. Thank you for praying for Shay. Please continue to pray for him as he transitions home.

Shay’s summer has been full of swimming and lots of fun! He comes alive in the water and has a blast swimming and spinning around in the pool with his friends. We love Shay and his enthusiasm. It is our great privilege to be able to care for him.

Shay’s favorite part of the day is going to preschool each morning. He comes into class with a big smile, and he loves singing the welcome song. He especially enjoyed it when a music teacher visited recently. She taught the class new songs, danced and played games with a parachute, and brought along fun instruments. Shay loves to play and try new things, and he had a great time playing with the shaker eggs and the big, loud drum!

Shay keeps everyone smiling! His days are full of preschool and playing outside where he loves watching the scooters and cars pass by.

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.
