It continues to be an exciting time in the China waiting child program. We anticipate the arrival of many new files. We will not know the full scope of each child’s medical needs until we have the complete files and are able to fully review their paperwork including their full medical files. Families not currently in the process of adopting with America World, but are interested in adoption should fill out a quick free PRE-APPLICATION and our Intake staff will follow up with you regarding your eligibility to pursue an adoption from China.
For those interested in adopting a boy, it continues to be a good time to adopt a boy of any age from China as our wait times are lower for families open to boys with needs commonly seen in China. Families who are currently in our China waiting child program are given first priority for matching before we advocate for any children. Today, we would like to introduce you to "Mary" and "Johnathan."
If you’ve been thinking about adopting from China and have not taken the first steps, now is a great time to consider adopting a boy or girl through our Waiting Child Program. Any questions can be directed to our China staff at email@example.com or call our staff at 800-429-3369. Please let us know if we can help with any questions about the adoption process.
We look forward to receiving these children’s files in the coming weeks and seeing God’s plan unfold in each of their lives!
Let me tell you about this 6 ½ year old’s sweet smile. Oskar was the first child that I connected to. It was our first day and as I dropped to my knees and started to play, this smile is what I saw. This kid could light the world with that smile! Oskar is so bright, sweet and so determined. I played with him and the other children all morning, when we came back from lunch I was speaking with another team member and he crawled over and started yanking off my shoes. This kid can move and his strength of will is very apparent. I was sitting on the steps of a building and he wanted something from me, this boy without support of braces walked to me, the distance about 10 feet. He has two foster brothers and one foster sister that he seems to get along with great! He lives with a German foster family. He loves to play with playdoh, blocks, and joins in on what others are doing when in a group setting.
He does require assistance to do certain things and has some limited verbal ability (based on our team’s observations) although was still able to sing along to Frozen’s ‘Let It Go’ when it played. He can grasp objects, untie/unzip, lace/unlace, unbuckle, and sort objects. He played “ring around the rosie” and “duck duck goose” with our team. He was observed going up stairs and navigating a slide and the playground with no issue. Though he may need and ask for assistance for certain things, he does not let cerebral palsy slow him down. He can point to objects, body parts, and recognize colors when asked.
This child with his sunny smile and fantastic personality holds a huge place in my heart. He is so ready for his new family. Will that be you? Oskar is a child from our Journey of Hope program and is listed as a Special Focus child by China, which means a family at any stage of interest or at any stage in the adoption process is eligible to consider his adoption. Please submit a FREE Pre-Application to determine your eligibility or to inquire about Oskar. You may also reach our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-429-3369.
Please join us as an advocate and help us spread Oskar’s story- together we can help find this sweet child’s forever family.
The first day of the Chinese New Year is tomorrow, Saturday, January 28th. Many America World families who have adopted from China will be celebrating in some way over the weekend. We wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year!
Our China team just informed us of some more great news today. 3 Letters of Acceptance were received for 3 America World families, which means these three cuties are no longer orphans and will be united with their forever families soon! Please keep these children and their families in your prayers as they complete the process. Congratulations!
Congratulations to the Selle family who just returned home from Haiti with their beautiful daughter! They were able to spend some time with AWAA Haiti Assistant Director, Margaret Hebda, while in Haiti. Welcome home, Selle family!
