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!
We’ve got two more adorable sisters to introduce you to – meet Katelyn, who turns 8 years old next week (!), and her sister Kameron, who is 6 years old. We were able to meet these sweet girls during our Superkids trip in November. We have additional photos and information from this meeting that can be shared with families interested in being considered for matching.
Ash is a sweet, clever 10 year old that we had the pleasure of meeting last month. It truly was a pleasure spending time with him – he did every task we threw his way, and he did them well! He completed all of our hard puzzles and was so gracious with everyone – us, the social workers, the other kids in the room. Ash is in the 5th grade where he gets good grades and told us he has lots of friends. He is learning some English in school and we could tell he was very proud to answer our questions in English when he could.
Meet sweet, spunky 7 year old Kelsey! This was our first time meeting Kelsey and we all had fun getting to know her. She did well on all of the tasks asked of her. She even did some simple multiplication!
