Precious Kellin, in need of HOPE!

Kellin is precious beyond words. 

MY FAMILY FOUND ME!! PRAISE GOD!
His sweet face calls out for a family to love him!
He  was in Bethel’s care for 10 months in 2012. He improved so much during that time, he went from being a weak, unhappy baby to being a fat, happy baby! He loves to be cuddled and loves to speak baby babble and play with his lips so that they make sounds, and he repeat words. He learned how to crawl and to stand and he started to walk holding hands with one of his ayis.

His transformation that he underwent just by being there a short time gives a little glimpse as to what a FOREVER family can do for him and how he could just BLOSSOM into all he is created to be and do! How blessed that family would be!
Unfortunately, Since he has been back at his orphanage, he has been very unhappy. He cries all of the time and he does not receive the care and attention that he needs. He mostly lies in his crib all day and he cries. This is heartbreaking!
Kellin
This is such a different baby to the boy when he was at Bethel and we know that with the love and attention of a family, he will return to his happy, healthy self.

Kellin
If you can't adopt Kellin, please pray about donating to his Reece's Rainbow account so another family may be financially able to bring him home and bring him HOPE!
If you would like to know more about how to adopt Kellin, Please contact me

Sweet Jonathan

Jonathan Shines


This post was shared from Love without Boundaries Blog There is something very special about this sweet boy's smile and eyes....
Five-year-old Jonathan has been in our Foster Care Program in Hunan since October 2009, when he was just two.  We first introduced him in 2010 in the blog,“Endearing Jonathan”, when he was just beginning to walk.  As we have come to know him over the years, we have seen him maintain his sweet spirit and charming personality while developing confidence in many areas.  Jonathan is now a happy, enthusiastic boy who attends kindergarten.
It’s hard not to be charmed by Jonathan as he performs a well-known Chinese children’s song in the video below called, “Ni Wa Wa”.  This song is about a doll who has no mother or father — just like little Jonathan. He is rewarded at the end with a toy microphone and is encouraged to thank his audience!  His proud smile says it all.
LWB’s Healing Homes Director, Julie Flynn Coleman, shared this video of Jonathan demonstrating his knowledge of colors and his ability to string beads.  He is obviously eager to please and show off his cleverness!
Jonathan is said to adore going to school, and sometimes he wakes up his foster grandfather in the morning and asks him to hurry so they can go to school early.
Jonathan’s speech has improved greatly. He can count to twenty and can tell short stories. He is always excited to talk to our foster care manager when she comes to visit and enjoys getting his picture taken and giving big, shining smiles for the camera!
Jonathan has scoliosis and a left ear deformity. We would love to see him thrive in a family setting where we feel sure his infectious smile would be most welcome.  We are hopeful that 2013 will be Jonathan’s year to find a forever family!
For more info and to see his videos please see this link
Love Without Boundaries proudly advocates for adoption but is not an adoption agency. We invite you to contact adoptionassistance@lwbmail.com with questions about a child we have featured and encourage you to contact your adoption agency for more information about China’s Waiting Child Program.

Gentle Cameron

SHINING EYES AND A BEAUTIFUL SMILE ...

I  fell in love with Cameron the first moment I saw his picture and the gentleness in his eyes seems to reflect his tender, sweet heart. 
What a warrior this precious boy is. He has endured much, but LOOK at his smile. Such strength in this boy, a true hero. 

**Cameron's quiet, gentle spirit will capture your heart right away. He is a four year old boy living in an orphanage in a ...large Asian country. His caregivers describe him as a cooperative little boy who is shy, modest and loved by staff and children alike. Cameron loves picture books and music, and would love to have a mom or dad to cuddle with. He loves the outdoors and toys that make noises. Even though Cameron has palm deformity on both hands  (fused fingers and contractions) , he is able to eat independently and draw lines.
Cameron was abandoned at age three in a local train station. We don't know the story of how he acquired the significant burn scars on his body, but we are sure that Cameron needs a new beginning. Cameron needs a family who will help him make his way in the world and shower him with unconditional love. Could your family be Cameron's new beginning? Contact  today at myriam@agapeadoptions.org for more information including lots of pictures and videos of this beautiful little boy.**

The above was written just recently and Cameron still waits. Shriner's in Cincinnati  can help.  PLEASE see the inside of this child... He deserves a chance of a lifetime... a FAMILY!!!

Leah, MEDICALLY URGENT!!!


Leah (Shen Shen) – Medically Urgent

Leah is in a special and urgent situation. Her orphanage will not do her adoption paperwork, unless a family comes forward for her first!

Leah isn’t just a sick little girl, she is AMAZING! The photo of her sleeping is the most recent. The other photos are about a year old.
LeahLeah
Someone who has met her said“She has personality and so much potential. She loves to laugh and she REALLY loves to eat. She is 4 years old but is tiny, tiny.”
LeahFrom my understanding, initially he diagnosis was just “CHD”. She went in for an Echo recently and they diagnosed her with “Pulmonary high pressure/hypertension”. At this point her heart is no operable in China. The doctor said in-country treatment would be taking a very expensive medication once per day for a year, after which she would go back for a follow-up Echo and see if there have been any changes in her health. Because this would be so expensive for the orphanage, it isn’t likely that they would pursue this treatment. Because of the severity of her heart, she is very delayed in speech and motor development. She gets winded very easily and is very weak. She is smart though! Her smile is contagious…THOSE DIMPLES! She is just beautiful.”
Leah
A recent second opinion from a heart surgeon“His conclusion was that surgery is not an option for her. What she needs is a heart and a lung transplant.”
As you can see, Leah will most likely not get the medication she needs without a family, and she certainly won’t have a chance at a heart and lung transplant without a family, so she REALLY NEEDS A FAMILY to help give her a CHANCE at LIFE.

If you think your family may be a match for sweet Leah, please send Jessica at Twentyless.com, an e-mail.

Gorgeous Naomi


I first saw beautiful Naomi on my friend's advocacy blog and as soon as I saw her I was taken away by her beauty . She just glows and radiates with a sweet inner light, yet her expression just begs for a forever family. I started following her closely and continued to see her wait with no inquiries. This breaks my heart. She deserves a family to run to her. So, please take the time to read and learn more about her. Also, please pray for her.

4-2011 Naomi update


 Naomi is a beautiful 6 year old little girl who is ready for her family.  She was born in January 2008. Her special need is a vision impairment (ametropia).  She also has cerebral palsy which affects all four limbs.
Here is a Video of Naomi

If you are unable to adopt Naomi at this time, please consider donating to her adoption fund at Reece’s Rainbow.

Please consider this sweet little one for your family. She is on the shared list, so any agency can help you adopt her. If you have any questions please email me, or please Jessica at Twentyless.com.
