Meet Sheldon

Sheldon is such a cutie. We love him very much, and are so thankful for the privilege of caring for him.


Recent Updates

Sheldon has recently shown us so much of his sweet personality! He loves to sing songs in preschool, especially the one that says, “Is Sheldon here today? Shout hooray!” This little guy loves music, and has also discovered how much he likes to play the xylophone.

We love that Sheldon is able to receive regular physical therapy as he grows. He likes to be on the exercise ball as his physical therapist works with him, especially if there’s music playing! His PT is very proud of his progress, and we’re excited to see how he grows and develops in time.

Sheldon’s preschool class has been working on learning colors, and they have a book for each color of crayon. Sheldon has discovered the red crayon book, and it’s his favorite. If handed the blue, or yellow, or green book, he’s indifferent toward it. But whenever he’s handed the red book, he lights up and loves flipping through the pages!

Sheldon is doing well in Beijing! Not only did he recently have his feeding tube removed, he started preschool and is enjoying it. During class, he is curious about everything going on around him, especially lessons on colors. Though he’s not too keen on craft time, he has a newfound love for music!

Sheldon recently turned 2 years old! He had a “Hungry, Hungry Caterpillar” themed birthday party with his friends, and our festivities were complete with party hats, cupcakes, and balloons. Sheldon is a resilient and sweet little boy, and we’re praying for big things for him this year!

Sheldon is getting stronger each day and is growing up quickly! He recently moved to the Care Center in Beijing, and he’s doing well. Sheldon loves toys, especially trucks. He lights up when he plays with them.
