Little Boys

Have you ever just sat ans looked at the list of children waiting, most are boys with minor needs. But yet they tend to wait forever for a family. The sad truth is that if they were born a girl the would have been matched and almost home. It is so sad when you are looking at an agency list and all of the kids are boys with correctable needs that are very minor. Boys tend to wait so much longer then girls but are just as sweet and loving. I looked through my Yahoo group today and there are a little over a 100 girls and close to 400 boys. I know most people when they think of China think of little girls but in reality there are just as many boys. Please if you are considering adoption look at the little boys files they sit there forever waiting for a mom and dad to scoop them up and love on them. So many little boys are waiting for homes in China and around the world and most are waiting simply because they are a boy. There is nothing wrong with wanting a little girl but don't completely forget about the little boys that wait.

O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago. -Isaiah 25:1

I would like to take a break from the posting of children {even though that is what this site is for}to share my heart about the growing Orphan crisis. Here are some statistics that hit home to me. Remember, each statistic is not just a number. Each number represents a PRECIOUS child who goes to bed without a Mommy or Daddy each night.
Every day 5,760 children become an Orphan.
Every 15 SECONDS a Child in Africa is Orphaned from AIDS. every 15 seconds!
Every Year in AFRICA ALONE 2,102,400 children become Orphans!
Can you imagine!?
Most of these children have some form of special need. The special needs vary from birth marks to severe heart conditions but all deserve a home. Most people sit in their happy homes, watching cable, eating whenever they feel like it, texting on phones, driving expensive cars, and demanding the very best for their life. Think about the Orphan who fights to eat, who has probably never had cable, or even rode in a car. The crisis is growing. We as Christians need to step out on FAITH and instead of hoping someone else will handle it do it ourselves! If my family would not have stepped out on Faith and went to China twice to bring two precious children home we would have missed out on one of the most amazing things in the world. When we answered God's call to adopt he blessed us. Sure we gave two children a home but what God did with our lives was much bigger than anything we could have ever done by accepting two children in to our family.
Can you change the life of an Orphan? Will you be the Mommy or Daddy that tucks them in to bed each night? Will you be the one to give them the HOPE they so desperately want?
Please pray for the precious Fatherless of the World tonight.
*I did not mean to offend anyone by this post, it is just heavy on my heart tonight.

Wonderful Waiting Kids!

Today's Kids all have Spinia Bifidia or some Spinal defect. These are scary words and frighten many, because they are special needs that involve the spinal cord and the function of other libs. Please don't over look these kids on the Shared List, I have worked with many children that have SB and I have a friend that goes to my school who was born with SB and you would never know he had it until he walks because he has a slight limp.

Here are today's waiting children:

Jack was born in November 2007 and will soon be 3 her really wants a mom and dad and he is also one of the many children I met this summer in China.We learned threw a translator that he wants a Gu Gu and a mama and Baba he is a Special Focus Child on an agency specific list and also has a grant. There is also another generous mother who is raising funds to help cover the rest of his aditional adoption expenses!

Girl born December 2009 Her need is preoperative SB. She is on the General Shared list so anyone can lock her file.

Boy born October, 2009. He is a Special Focus child on the shared list.

Girl was born in June, 2007. Her SN is severe scoliosis

Wonderful Waiting Kids!

Today Wonderful waiting Kids are those that seem to wait the longest. The kids with Downs Syndrome. Those seem to be scary words to most. But underneath all those medical terms are little ones who want to be loved. I know not everyone is led to parent a child born with Downs, but these are some of the sweetest kids I have ever met.


Girl, Born July 7, 2006 China From a missionary who visited with her in August 2010: “ Hailey was found abandoned at the age of 8 months. She is described as easy going and social, and is well loved by the orphanage staff. She is energetic and likes to listen to music.”

More photos available, along with full social history and medical records


Boy, Born November 20, 2008
From a missionary who visited with her in August 2010: “ Henry is so cute! Totally healthy and chubby, and will do great in a family.”

Boy, Born October 29, 2005

From a missionary who visited with him in August 2010: “ Garrett was found abandoned at the age of 9 months. He is medically healthy but very small for his age. He lives in a VERY poor orphanage that is rife with neglect and lack of resources to properly care for the children with special needs living here. They are in dire need of humanitarian support. Those who are bedridden especially suffer here, and urgently need adoptive families. We are desperately seeking a family to give Garrett the live he deserves! ”

Boy, Born April 5, 2009
From a missionary who visited with him in August 2010: “Doug is a sweet baby boy who is blessed to have been found and saved. He is doing well and will thrive in a loving family environment”

Boy, Born July 12, 1999

From a missionary who visited with him in August 2010: “ Daniel is very active and friendly. He is affectionate and likes to play with and greet others. He proudly shows his work to you and enjoys cleaning and keeping a tidy room. Daniel has a great sensitivity to the immobile/special needs children, and often will bring them toys and water, etc to help them. Daniel is a loving boy who will do wonderfully in a family of his own”. RR does not typically advocate for children over the age of 10, but Daniel is a wonderful boy and deserves the opportunity to find a forever family.

Girl, Born February 24, 2006

From a missionary who visited with her in August 2010: “ Callie is an active girl who enjoys being outdoors. She can drink by herself , go up and down stairs, and play ball.”

Girl, Born September 30, 2002

She is extroverted and can express her feelings very well. When she is happy she will greet you warmly and embrace you enthusiastically; if she thinks that she was treated wrongly she will make sharp sound and cry loudly to blow off her discontent. She has made great physical progress and can go up and down stairs and loves to dance around!

Boy, Born April 2004

This boy, born 4/2004 has Down syndrome. He was told if he wanted to go to America he needed to learn English so he learned “thank you” and “bye bye.” He can do many things for himself including washing his face and tidying up the toys. He likes to play games. He manipulated the toys and building pieces very well. He likes blocks and little cars. He is good at taking the lead in games and likes to teach other children the games. If two kids are fighting over a toy he will stop them and give each child a toy so they won’t fight. He likes to watch a local new channel and talk shows. When the doctor was passing out treats to everyone he told the other children “to say thank you.” He is very aware of his environment. When a baby spit up no one helped quickly enough for him so he went and got a tissue and wiped the baby’s face. The staff said he was very shy but was away from his foster home for two weeks. He was one of the dancers in the program and didn’t seem too shy. He has no heart issues.


I am new to the advocacy site but thought I would try to help some of these kids find a home. There are so many kids that need a mom and dad. Could you be the family one of these little ones are hoping of.

To introduce myself I am Taylor I am 17 and a follower of Jesus Christ and me and my friend Ashton are running this site it will feature children from around the world that are waiting for families but with a focus on children from China and Ethopia.

If you see a child here at any given time that you would like more info on please email me and I will be glad to hook you up with the people that can help you find out more info in the children on this site. Some of the kids we post about will not have pictures due to their birth countries laws. Please bare with us as we get this blog started in hopes of finding these children homes!
