Big Strides for Brandon


Brandon is two years old and is in the toddler class at our Believe in Me orphanage school in Huainan. He is quite little for his age, but our teachers can already tell that he is a hard worker. Although he looks small, he does go to school by himself!


After coming into the classroom he can put his shoes on the shoe rack by himself. He has progressed so much and now can follow the teacher’s instructions and bring objects to her when she asks.


Brandon has also greatly improved in his motor skills. Several months ago when he was placed on the yoga ball (which is much bigger than him), he would fall down off of it. Now, with the teacher holding the ball, he can balance on it while his feet are off the ground!


When the teacher is cleaning up, Brandon will begin to help put the trash in the trash can without being asked. He is very observant and considerate.


We think that Brandon is making big strides…for such a little guy!


Brandon has just been moved to the hospital this week for emergency hernia surgery. We would appreciate all thoughts and prayers on his behalf and can’t wait to welcome him back to school.

If you’d like to be a part of Brandon’s story, please consider becoming a monthly sponsor. For just $25 a month, you can help ensure that he will continue to make strides, learn and grow in our Believe in Me school.  Thank you for considering helping him!
