All About Aaron

As I general rule of thumb, I try to stay away from describing children with words that only point out their physical attractiveness. I just want to find something deeper in them and for them to read about themselves in the future, and for them to see something more than a cute face.  But when I saw this photo of Aaron – all I could think was how darn handsome and ADORABLE he is! Doesn’t this four-year-old face just melt your heart?!  I know I cannot be the only one.

Here are a few facts that we pulled out of this report that we thought might be particularly interesting:

* 2,040 adoptions from China were completed in 2014. This is a 10% decrease in the number of children from China being adopted to the U.S. compared to the previous year, 2013, when 2,301 kids were chosen by American families.

Love Starts Here

Without a doubt, the holiday season is a time when all of us think of family. We try to come up with the perfect gifts for those we hold dear, count down the days until loved ones return home, and miss so terribly those we can no longer see and hold. Yes, the holidays are busy and often hectic, but absolutely this time of year reminds us that love is one of the greatest blessings we can ever receive, doesn’t it?

DonnyLoveStartsHere

It is for that reason that we have put “love” at the very center of our year end campaign: Love Starts Here. For far too many children around the world, unconditional love is a gift they have not yet experienced. Read more.
