Recent Updates

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!

Stephen’s favorite part of the day is preschool! He gets excited to put his shoes on and walk to school with his friends, and he has a great time learning new things while he’s there. Stephen learns best by following what others are doing. He’s a smart and adaptable little guy!

Stephen doesn’t let anything hold him back. He’s determined and has a great propensity to learn. He’s learning a little bit of sign language which is benefiting him a lot, and we’re excited to watch as he continues to grow and learn new things.

Stephen has a bright smile and impressive dance moves. He can be very charming. Stephen’s nannies have lots of fun teaching him new moves and dancing right along with 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.
