The Boys Who Wait


We are huge fans of the boys in our programs, and it breaks our hearts when we see boys who have been waiting for families for entirely too long.  It seems like ages now that we have been hearing that the shared list of waiting child files has consisted of 75% boys and 25% girls.  (The shared list is accessible to all agencies with a China Waiting Child adoption program.) No one seems to be able explain why families wanting to adopt are primarily interested in bringing girls into their families, but the fact remains that  approximately 3/4 of the children from China who wait for adoption are boys.

From oldest to youngest, here are some of the boys whom we have featured on our blog who are still waiting for their forever family to see them, fall in love, and commit to bringing them home!

Most of these handsome boys are on the shared list with just a few exceptions.  We hope that with the right family, ALL of these boys would make wonderful sons!
