Let Hope Shine – China Child Sponsorship Program
Emma is almost two years old, and her spunk and sass and sweetest little grin have stolen all our hearts. She has a very complicated little heart, and while she has undergone her first heart surgery already, she will have a few more to come. Emma loves to laugh, and always looks for ways to make someone smile — crinkling up her nose into that heart-melting smile we love so much. She loves to read books and eat Gerber puff snacks for a special treat. We love our sweet Emma-girl!
Baby Oliver is our tiniest little heart warrior, and he joined our home in December! We are so loving getting to cuddle and snuggle with this tiny brave guy! He was born with a complicated heart condition that will require several open heart surgeries — we are hopeful that he will grow big and strong and can have his next surgery soon! Oliver loves to giggle and coo — and especially loves to be held and rocked back and forth. And if you sing to him? You might just be his new best friend. We love you, little Oliver!
Theo joined our home in November, and has been affectionately been coined as one of our “Three Muskateers”. He absolutely loves to clown around the baby home with Toby and Jack — those three boys are so much trouble but just the most fun! Theo has a very complicated brave little heart, and is awaiting his second hopeful surgery. He keeps us busy busy busy — always on our toes, but he has the most infectious little giggle and we can’t help but love him. We’re all so happy you’re here, sweet Theo.
Toby also joined our home in November, and has been affectionately been coined as another one of our “Three Muskateers”. He absolutely loves to clown around the baby home with Theo and Jack — those three boys are so much trouble but just the most fun! Toby is so sweet and tender and precious — he loves to snuggle and curl up to read books. He has the quietest little voice, and I love when he gets brave enough to come ask me something. He has a very complicated brave little heart, and is awaiting his surgery, which should happen in the next month. We all adore his little cheek dimples and have fallen absolutely in love with his soulful eyes. Welcome home, Toby. We love you so so so very much.
Kiah is the most breath-taking little gem – her little body is so very weak but her sweet spirit just shines. She is just over one year old, and was born with a broken little heart. We are waiting for her to grow stronger before her next heart surgery that she desperately needs — and we can’t wait to see her blossom as she grows and learns and trusts. There is so much life in her little eyes — we absolutely can’t wait to see her catch up and thrive. Her name means “New Season” — and sweet Kiah-girl, it truly is a new season for you here. We are so glad to have you home.
