She is clever, will help to do what she could do and send wishes to senior citizens, loved by adults. She likes to play very much, sliding board and dolls, she could take good care of younger kids, is a kind girl with a loving heart. But all of these days she seem to have psychological problems. Once there are strangers who know her visit at home or school, she would looks very anxiety and tension as well as hide herself. In the early of September of 2010 she studies in grade one in primary school. But she can’t adapt the visiting of the strangers. If she meets this, she would hide herself under the desk or cry, which affected normal teaching seriously, and on November of 2010 she quits school; now she can’t go to school. Everyday she does housework and plays at home with foster mother. Her studies don’t been improved.

She is in desperate need of a loving family!!! A family who can pour themselves into making her secure in who she is...a precious child of God!!

SHE WANTS A MAMA, PAPA, & BROTHERS!!!

Precious Rose was abandonded at 2 years old. She had a finding note with her that stated: "she is ill but the family can not support her and hope to be sent into a institute."

Through rehabilitation and exercises, Rose can walk with a walker. After supper, she would practice walking with a roll booster in the rehabilitation park. Now she knows to go to the toilet by herself. She can also dress herself in summers. The clothes in winter is much tough, she can not dress herself in winter due to the problem of the legs. Rose is very beautiful and intelligent without showing out. She would speak much with familiars but not with strangers. Now she can play jokes and act as a spoiled child. The teachers like her very much. She is a quite girl and is very smart in learning.
She is still inconvenient in walking but this has not influence her happiness. She is smart and cute and people love her very much. I asked her “do you want a foreign family?” she said “yes, I am. And I want a family with mother, brothers and papa”

But you know what...most people don't see her that way...they see a little girl who is not complete...I ASSURE you, she is complete...wonderfully and fearfully made!!! PLEASE help spread the word about this precious one!!!
This is beautiful, amazing A Lian. I have been advocating for this sweet one for a while and still she does not have her forever family. I have this tiny video of her
and it bring me to tears...tears of joy because there is NO doubt she is a bundle of beautiful joy...tears of longing...longing for her to have a forever family to love her!
Sweet A Lian is almost 3 years old and was born with Down's Syndrome. Here's a little bit of info. on this little miracle: A Lian is a completely adorable child. She loves to cuddle and give kisses, and though sometimes solemn, her whole face scrunches up in a ready smile and laugh when interacting. She can dance with the music, and cooperates when the caretakers dress her. She eats with a good appetite, can peel the skin off of fruit by herself, and can drink with a straw. Any family would be blessed to have this sweetheart. A Lian is physically healthy. No heart or thyroid issues have been detected. A Lian - Just learned to walk. She seemed to enjoy walking around with the walker that was present. Wide base of support when walking with arms up in a high guard position (typical for newly acquired walking ability). Wide base of support while sitting. Is able to get on both knees and reach and play in that position. Can go into a 1/2 kneeling position, which is an age appropriate transition movement. Will climb up to get a toy. She is curious and likes to explore. Loved lying in the fresh, warm, clean pile of diapers on the floor. Will scribble circles when given a pen/pencil. Loves to interact with the adults and enjoys just being carried around and played with on your lap.

Older Child

Meet Blossom! 


Blossom is a beautiful 14 year old, but 14 is not the age any waiting child wants to reach, when they reach 14 they are no longer eligible for a family. Can you imagine?! Older child adoption is such an amazing blessing and I know Blossom would be a fantastic addition to a family. She NEEDS a family to love her and teach her. 


Could precious Blossom be YOUR daughter?

Elliot (Sue from BAAS) and Elisyn (Sandy from BAAS)

So I know I have been MIA lately and Ashton has done a good bit of the posting but this post is not for a particular child looking for a family but rather two girls that I advocated for on here that are now home or in China meeting her family. Elisyn and Elliot were both born with very severe heart defects and it is a miracle that they have made it to where they are now! I am asking for everyone who follows SWW to please pray for the complete healing of these two little girls hearts they deserve every chance at life any other little one would. Please continue to think about them whether you are Christian or not please send good thoughts to their families as they struggle with reality of raising a child with severe heart defects and that everyday they are here will be a blessing from above. Both little girls are incredibly beautiful and I cannot wait to personally see what is in store for the two of them while they are here with us all!! I wont post pictures of the little girls I will leave that for their families but please if you would like to follow Elisyn's family go here you can read about her adoption and life since being home with her forever family! Elliot's family does not have a blog and I will try to keep everyone updated if I get permission from her mom!

Being Broken.

My heart is completely broken.
I am completely broken. 

After reading this post and finding news out from my sweet friend. It is overwhelming. My heart is shattered.
There are children all over the world JUST like Teri Lynn. She isn't alone. I have never been so shattered as to when I read that post. I sobbed. I got chills. It shook my world. A little girl all the way in Eastern Europe. {That sounds terribly dramatic...it isn't, promise} She is the one we should look at every day and remember to pray. There are 146 million orphans just like her. Waiting. 
Artem -- Waiting

Sweet Jacob, who I have been praying for for about 7 months now passed away. He had just been moved to an institution because he had turned 5 {like Teri Lynn}. He lived in Eastern Europe. He even had a family! and believe it or not, I was so attached to a little boy in a picture, who had stolen my heart. I had never met him, touched him, or been able to call him mine. But he was a part of me. {It sounds so weird to say, but it is so true}
Josie -- Waiting.

I am completely broken. I feel as if I could have done something to prevent it, even though I know I couldn't have. I trust God has a plan. God knew all the days of J's life and He KNEW what was going to happen. I feel that Jacob has been put in my life for a reason.
I am broken, for a reason. Something. HAS. TO. CHANGE.
Patrick -- Waiting


These children should not ever be forgotten. but, they are.
I am so thankful Jacob was NOT forgotten. He was SO loved. He was cherished. Prayed for. Why can't all of the children have something like this? Why can't they all be loved and prayed for. Why can't they all have families? People cared when something happened to Jacob, but there are 146 million who no one cares about. 
Kiki -- Waiting

We as Christians cannot just stand here and WATCH as innocent children die every day. I know, people are doing amazing things. but, I feel helpless. 
Priscilla -- Waiting

What can I do to change the life of another child so they do not have the same thing happen to them as Jacob or Teri Lynn? How can I change that? I can't adopt{yet}, unfortunately. But I CAN advocate. and THAT. I will do. I refuse to stand on the sidelines as innocent children each day die, forgotten, unloved, and considered "trash." Yes, Jesus loves them and holds them in His arms.  
Sasha -- Waiting

I fight the anger of why this is happening. Why does God allow this? {I know He doesn't and I know He has a plan...Don't think I am questioning God...} But, Why do I sit in America, in a beautiful, fabulous life style and WATCH these children through blogs and websites slowly wither away. Each day. I am so much to blame. We ALL are. 
Xander -- Waiting

If we are Christians, we are commanded to look after the orphans in their distress. We are not given an option. We are not nudged to do it. God does not just say "Well, if YOU want to" We are COMMANDED to do it. So, why do we all sit and watch? 
Meet Lisa, she is my newest child to advocate and pray for. I have fallen in love with this beautiful girl.
She is in China. Please pray for her. Please spread the word. Help her and the rest of these kids. FIND. the forever family they DESERVE.


*Ok, so I know we don't all sit and watch but still most of us DO.
All of the children posted throughout the post are WAITING. They are the Teri Lynn's and Jacobs. They don't have a Mommy and Daddy. They don't have HOPE. Can you give that to them?
Please join me in praying, advocating, and doing everything we possibly can to make a difference.
These sweet children, pray for them! They are waiting, to be loved, cherished, and to be wanted. Are you called? We are ALL called to help. Maybe you can't adopt, but you can make a difference.


Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.-Hebrew 10:23

"June" waiting in China

When looking to adopt a child, many want a baby. I mean who wouldn't? A baby that you can cuddle, share firsts with, dress up, and with little girls, put big bows in their hair...I mean dude, me me!  But, seriously. There are so many beautiful, precious waiting OLDER children. They all need a Mommy and Daddy just as much as the babies do. They still have plenty of "firsts" and I bet you can bribe them to dress up know that they want a Mommy and Daddy, they deserve one. What child doesn't deserve to be told they are loved, beautiful, precious and learn about Jesus?

When I saw this post on this blog, I knew I had to share it. She needs a family. Could you be the Mommy she so badly wants? Could you make her wish come true?

While in China I met a 13 year old girl.  I will call her June. 


Because she had a birthday while we were there. Unfortunately we did not know that.  A June girl.

I actually wonder if she even knew it was her birthday. Something tells me they do not tell the kids, hey today is YOUR day!

Because she turned 13, it means she only has ONE YEAR left to find a family.  Or she loses her chance, forever.  At 14 they are to old.


So what becomes of her?  We really do not know.

Here is what I know about June.

She is beautiful and her smile lights up her face.


She watches out for the little ones. One day she was upstairs with us and we were trying to get the kids downstairs. One of the little ones needs a walker, and we did not know where it was. We did not have to say a word, June was on it and ran off to help her little friend.

She attends school so we were not with her as much as some of the other kids.  We know she can count in English and writes well.

She has palsey of the left limbs. But it did not seem to affect her.


Her favorite color is yellow.

And she wants a family. She told us this.

Because she only has ONE YEAR left,  she needs her family to step up NOW.

It COULD be done. 

So she might not be what you or I would typically think of when we think of adoption.

She is 13. she has lived in an orphanage her entire life. There will be issues to work through.

Though we did NOT see this side of her, she MIGHT be like any teenage girl.

MOUTHY & MOODY!

Or she might not, because she might just look at life a bit differently.



Regardless of any of that, she wants a family.  She DESERVES a family, doesn't she?

She needs a daddy to tell her she is beautiful before she starts looking at boys.

She needs a mommy to take her shopping, fix her hair, talk to her about life.

She needs to hear about Jesus... 

Please help me spread the word about June. WE can be her voice.  WE can lift her up in prayer till she is home.  WE could change her world.  


Bringing June home is totally doable. She has a year. God has a family for this precious girl. Is it your family?
Please share and help June find her home!

This and That

This post is a bunch off jumbled up-ness.
So, bear with me {Ashton} as I just give you a few "announcements" then we shall get back to advocating. K? kay.

So, I am sure you noticed that SWW looks a bit different. Let us know what you think about the new blog design...Yay or Nay? Should we have stuck with the old design or do you like the little bit of color we threw in? Not that it is that important but we still would like to know :)

Another note, We have added a button to our side bar. This is an awesome way to share SWW with the world. And it is an easy way to "do your part" You never know if by sharing our button on your blog someone sees our website and finds their child! One less orphan and one more forever family! It can change lives. Just copy and paste the bottom part and put it in an HTML side on your sidebar and wahhlahhh. You got it!
OK we are having technical difficulties with the button! We will let you know as soon as it as fixed! Sorry Guys!



**UPDATE. We have the blog button working again...The one on the sidebar works! Thank you so much for telling us! Please spread the word! :)







Ok, next up is the fun part. I am talking with Taylor about maybe doing something really fun. Our goal by August is to have 50 followers. That would be huge. 50 followers might not seem like a lot, but it is definitely getting our name out there. That is only{ha.ha.only} 30 more. So, Share, Share, Share, add our button, Like our Face*book page, tell your friends, and anything else you can think of. Get our name out there.
If we get 50 followers, we will have a surprise. Some giveaway, drawing, whatever it may be. {Give ideas on that too! Blog design, tshirt-ish, just random gift, etc etc}

Until they all have Homes,
A
