We met Silas when he was 2 1/2 weeks old. He was not even admitted to the care of the SWI yet, but they brought him from the hospital to meet us. A tiny little bundle of preciousness.
Hayden is only 1 year old and is an incredibly adorable baby boy. Just look at that little grin! Melt.my.heart into a puddle on the floor.
XuiXui (XuiXui G-255 On Rainbowkids) is a gorgeous 10 year old girl who is waiting for a family in China. Last year the CCCWA decided to help agencies get good updates on some children who had been waiting for a while on the shared list. XuiXui is one of the girls who was assigned to Gladney and Superkids volunteers were able to meet her in October. I'd say the photographer did a pretty good job, wouldn't you?
07/15/2017 update: We have had a wonderful response to our advocacy efforts for Les! His file is being considered and we are hopeful he will be matched soon. We are no longer sharing his file. Thank you!
Apparently we are all about the amazing baby girls today! I'd like to introduce you to Leeza.
Update 6/29: I love this community we are part of! Yesterday morning we posted Lisa's post hoping that a family would see how amazing she is and step forward to adopt her. We have had so many inquiries that we worked late last night just to get everyone answered! We are very hopeful that she will be matched quickly. At this point we are creating a list of backup families for her but not sharing her file further. Thank you all!
We posted about Hector here, but at the time we did not have photos of him (we did have a video which you can see in the other post). I knew it was definitely worth a whole new blog post when I saw these adorable little photos!
Nadia is a darling, happy little girl who shows her recognition for people by laughing and waving her hands. She is very happy when her caregiver arrives in the morning.
Most of the time we post about matches on Family Friday, but today I want to tell you about Molly. I have taken photos of Molly on 3 different occasions. The first time was in September of 2015. She came bouncing into the room and we all smiled. She was cute and spunky and had that little spark that makes a child really stand out. It was our first time visiting that SWI and we were not sure yet if a partnership would be established between Gladney and the SWI.
