Stephen will be greatly missed as he has returned to his guardian orphanage. We consider it an honor to have had the privilege of caring for him, and we will always admire his kind heart and determination. Please pray for his transition, and that he will soon have the opportunity to know the love and security of a family through adoption.

Celebrating with Stephen is always a joy! His enthusiasm is contagious, making the holidays brighter. He is a silly, sweet, and kind friend. Our hope for Stephen is that he would have the opportunity to more fully blossom in the love and protection of a family through adoption. Thank you for your continued prayers as Stephen enters into the new year.

Stephen has recently transitioned back to our Care Center in Zhengzhou where he was warmly greeted by nannies and friends. His best friend, Bridgett, makes him laugh and they love to communicate using sign language (even using some signs they’ve made up on their own)! Stephen’s clever mind and tender heart continue to bring joy wherever he goes.

Stephen recently turned 6 years old! We absolutely love celebrating this boy. Everything about him is happy and bright, and we are thrilled to watch him continue to grow. We pray Stephen will soon have the opportunity to enter the love of a family, and we are honored to care for him in this time.

We love Stephen and his cheeky grin! His preschool teachers say he is incredibly affectionate and very smart. He doesn’t let anything stand in his way, and he is proving more and more each day just how smart he is! It’s a joy to watch Stephen grow and learn.

Stephen’s fun energy and enthusiasm for life keeps us smiling! He loves going to preschool to look at books as someone reads to him, and he shows us each day just how smart he is. He is curious, observant, and an all-around wonderful little boy!
