Zahara absolutely loves to dance, so she had a great time when we went Christmas caroling through the children’s rooms! She danced to her heart’s content, flashed her dimples at us, and looked adorable in her antlers as we sang Christmas songs with her.

Zahara is growing up quickly. She is a beautiful little girl who sees each day as a party. Zahara loves celebrating her friends, and at a recent birthday party she enjoyed helping blow out candles, and she clapped and giggled while singing “happy birthday.” During China’s Mid-Autumn Festival she had the best time snacking on mooncakes (which she couldn’t get enough of) and playing with friends.

Zahara moved to our Care Center in Jiaozuo earlier this year, and she’s doing well there. Zahara is a firecracker with lots of energy and spunk. She’s a happy and smart little girl, who loves to play games with her nannies and friends. She especially loves playing with balls!

Zahara is a great helper who is kind to others. She loves to help her nannies with the smaller children in her room, and her happy personality brightens the day of those around her!

Zahara and the other children in Zhengzhou have had such a fun start to the holiday season! A few days before Thanksgiving the children woke to a beautiful white blanket of snow outside. The next day the children had a great time playing in it, and they looked so cute in their puffy warm clothes.

We’re smitten with Zahara and her dimples! It is our great joy to love and care for her. She really is such a sweetheart. Zahara has become very talkative and playful, especially with the other children in her room. She also loves to run around and giggle.

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.
