Advocate & Pray: Quinn

QuinnThis four-year-old boy has such a cute smile!  Quinn is listed as having a “sensitive special need,” but his learning is on track–he is even getting some one-on-one English lessons.  He is curious and polite, and he loves playing outside, as you can see from his picture!

Quinn is listed with No Hands But Ours
China

Quinn, born May 2010, is adored by everyone because of his sweet smile, chubby face, and polite manners. When he sees a caretaker who has been gone for a few days, he will tell them how he missed them.

A curious child, he wants to learn and explore new things, and asks lots of “Why” questions. He often surprises adults by saying something more mature than his age, such as “How come my teacher is not here yet? Maybe she’s sick? Or is visiting her mother?” Whatever he does, he is completely focused, whether it’s a craft, playing with a toy, or listening to a story.

Advocate & Pray: Dexter

DexterDexter is a precious little boy who has gone through some significant changes during his time in care.  He has lost weight, and his lips are dry and cracked.  He has some limb problems, but is said to be a cheerful, friendly little boy.  Dexter desperately needs a family who can provide him with the care and love that he needs to regain his health and his smile!

Dexter is listed with No Hands But Ours
China

Dexter came into care as an infant, at just two months old. His medical need was determined to be limb differences affecting both his wrists/hands and his weight was a healthy 9.7 lbs.

He was described as baby who was adored by his ayis, had a good appetite, and loved to play while lying on the floor soaking in the sun light. A little man with a ready smile, quick reaction but wee bit shy.

The sparkle in his eyes is fading. He looks tired and frail. He is too weak to keep us with his friends.

The last line of one of his developmental report reads “We hope he can quickly find a home and have a loving father and mother as well as an even healthier and happier childhood.”

Advocate & Pray: Nadia

Nadia

Nadia is a Ukrainian orphan brought to our attention by Lizzie.  (You can find her Compassion blog here.)  Lizzie is advocating for Nadia, and we asked her to share Nadia’s story here.

~*~

When I was asked to connect an orphan with a family, I wasn’t sure who to choose.  There are so many children waiting for families.  ​I was drawn to one girl from the Ukraine.  She stood out to me because she was born without eyes and the most recent photo of her was five years old.

I would like you to meet Nadia!

Nadia 2

She just had her picture taken this week!

Nadia was born on December 10, 2003.  She is blind, has severe intellectual disabilities, and has hydrocephalus.  She lives in an Ukrainian orphanage where she is often left alone in a crib.  Even though she does not do many things like you or I would, I am sure that she can still feel joy.  And what joy it would bring her to have a family!
