We met Kent for the first time on his 6th birthday last fall! Since this was his first time meeting us, he was pretty shy. We could tell that he has a close relationship with his foster mother as he looked to her for reassurance and followed her directions. In fact, his foster mother described him as “a little prince”! She said that he is sweet, cuddly, active, and likes attention.
Are you ready for some cuteness?! Check out Lola, so fancy in her red dress with her hair in a little ponytail! I’m thinking bows would be a hit!
Her file describes her as active, cheerful, smart and clever. She is loved by teachers and caretakers.
We met sweet, shy Adalyn last spring shortly before she turned 7 years old, and I’ve thought about her often. We could tell she was nervous to meet with us, which is understandable, but slowly over the morning we saw more of her personality shine through. Her caregivers described her as gentle, easy-going, but that she can also have a bit of stubborn streak.
Tom turned three in November! He loves music, reading books, throwing balls and giving high fives! He knows how to clean up the playroom when he is finished playing. Tom is making great strides in his skills- including fine motor and gross motor and communication skills.
We met Kip for the first time in November 2019, and what a cutie! He was a little shy with us and wasn’t too into trying all of our tasks. But, hey, we’re weird looking and weird sounding strangers! He did warm up to us after some time and we got to see a playful side to him. He loves to play house, especially with kitchen toys. Maybe he’ll be a chef one day!
Sometimes I wonder what it is like to read our posts as we struggle to relay the unique preciousness of each child. I feel like we use the same words, the same descriptions. Over and over we tell you how blown away we were with a child, how special that child is. But here is the thing, it is true. Each and every time it's true. and if you could just meet the child you would see and understand that. Instead we are tasked with telling you in a few words how special a child is.
Corbin - we met him several years ago. I knew we would be seeing him again when we went to China in November. I felt strangely nervous about it. It is hard to think about kids and try so hard to find their family and go back to see them again. They certainly have not spent as much time thinking about you as you have spent thinking about them!
Are you ready to meet Alexander The Cute?!?! Alexander is such a sweet little three and half year old boy!
Alexander enjoyed playing with all the toys we brought. When a toy particularly sparked his interest, he would show it to his social worker so that she could share in the discovery along with him, which melted our hearts. He
Is there anything cuter than a little 3 year old boy in a train shirt with yellow sleeves? I think not!
