Waiting Child Grant Increase



Ana’s grant has increased this week from $2000 – $3000. We are trying very hard to find her family and would love for you to consider making her your own.  Ana is so sweet. Her DOB is 1/2011. Her special need is post op spina bifida. She has no use of her lower limbs and is incontinent. Ana is very healthy and a video is available of her if you are interested. She was operated on by a US team from Pennsylvania and recovered at Maria’s Big House of Hope. This photo was taken in 12/2013. Please share her with your adoptive community and help bring her home!

Adoption Advocacy

After a long hiatus I am beginning to blog again. 2013 was quite a year for my family as we brought our son home from China. We have been so blessed by his presence in our home and things are going very smoothly.  I am ready to begin to do some child advocating on this blog as well as regular adoption update material.

Every child deserves a family and I am happy to present to you these four deserving children in need of a family this year. Please take a few minutes to read about them and consider them for your family. They are all in China and they are all waiting on someone to make them their own.

Benjamin – Age 3 DOB 5/2010

Special Need – Post Op Bilateral CL/CP

He has no other health concerns other than some delayed speech due to his CL/CP surgery. What a cutie!


Ana – Age 3 DOB 1/2011

Special Need: Post-op Spina Bifida, Left Pyelectasis

She is so beautiful. She is healthy, her skin literally glows and she has the most gorgeous eyes. A video is available.


Chandler – Age 5 years old. DOB 1/2009

Special Need: Down Syndrome


Peter – Age 5 years old DOB: 6/2009

Special Need: Down Syndrome, Polydactyl of right hand, Nystagmus

Peter is said to be a little delayed compared to his peers, he is a quiet boy who gets along well with others and enjoys playing outside.


All of these children are designated to Across The World Adoptions in CA. You can find out more information about them at
