Meet Stephen

Stephen’s big heart and loving personality are just some of the reasons we love him! 


Recent Updates

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!

Stephen has such a helpful and loving personality! He loves to help clean up in preschool, especially after a messy craft or painting project. He’s often very thoughtful of others—sharing his snack or helping them with an activity.

Stephen recently moved to the Care Center in Beijing, and he is adjusting well. He’s loving his new preschool class (his favorite part is circle time), and his teachers say he is sweet and kind. When music is playing, he stands and sways wearing his cute grin. We love Stephen, and are so grateful to care for him!

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.
