South has a wild and contagious laugh. He is loving and so much fun!


Recent Updates

South is so full of joy and he brings it with him wherever he goes. We love the way his nose scrunches when he smiles! South loves to look at himself, whether it’s in a mirror or selfie-mode on a phone. He gets a kick out of making silly faces with friends! He is very silly, but he also has such a loving heart and is playful and sweet with the younger children in his room.

Christmastime looks good on South! He’s had fun playing with tinsel and looked adorable in his Santa hat. We caroled and played guitar in the children’s rooms, and although South wasn’t sure what to think at first, he warmed up to the whole thing when we passed out candy canes! South brings us so much joy!

South’s zeal and joy for life is contagious! His laugh makes our days brighter. He is typically the life of the party, and whenever he shows off his dancing skills, his friends have a great time joining in and filling the room with laughter!

South began preschool this month, and he’s been having a great time! He’s smart, loves life, and we’re so grateful he has this opportunity to learn new things and make new friends.

South’s charm and scrunched-nose smile melts our hearts. He’s learned that he likes to race the older boys in his room. Since he is smaller he doesn’t often win, but that doesn’t keep him from running his hardest each time. We see a lot of perseverance in South!

We see South’s big heart shine through when he loves on and gives kisses to the younger children in his room. He’s growing up quickly, and we love watching his personality unfold!

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.
