Meet Suri

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

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!

Suri is happy and smiley. She has lots to say, and we love to listen to her chatter! Suri also enjoys playing with her toes.

We are smitten with Suri’s smiley eyes and sweet cuddles. It’s such a joy to know and love her!

We’re having a lot of fun welcoming the holiday season at Maria’s Big House of Hope. We recently made an ornament craft with each child, making a sweet thumbprint ornament with Suri.

We are so thankful for the resources available to Suri through the physical therapy she is able to receive at Maria’s. It has been wonderful to see how determined she is to make strides in this area. She is quite a hard worker!

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.
