Meet Suri

Suri is one of the snuggliest kids we know. She loves to be held, and we love to oblige!

Suri has discovered she loves to paint. She would rather use her hand as a paintbrush than an actual paintbrush, and she creates beautiful artwork! We love getting to introduce her to new things.

Suri looked adorable in her Christmas hat, and she had a great time dancing along to Christmas music when we sang songs and played instruments to her and her friends! She clapped and danced along, and her pretty smile never faded.

We had so much fun celebrating the season at our Fall Festival, and Suri dressed up as a beautiful princess! She hung out in the middle of the room and took in all the excitement around her. She decorated a pumpkin with her orange fingerprints and had fun dancing in the photo booth with her nanny. She didn’t love having her face painted at first but came around in the end—and looked adorable with the ladybug on her cheek!

Suri is a happy little girl, and is adored by each of us. She’s working hard at her physical therapy and getting stronger each day!

We call Suri our little “sloth” because whenever you pick her up, she’s sure to hold onto you with all four limbs. She’s a cuddle-bug, and we’re always happy to accept her snuggles.

We recently celebrated Suri’s fourth birthday. We had a fun party with her and her friends complete with cupcakes and lots of balloons. We love Suri and are grateful to be able to care for her!

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.
