The Joy of Mateo

Handsome and happy Mateo is a four-year-old boy who currently lives in our Tongren foster care program while he waits to be chosen for adoption. Mateo exudes joy!

During the week, Mateo is able to attend school thanks to supporters of our education program.

Mateo lives with his foster parents and his younger foster sister, Mireia. Mateo and Mireia have become best of friends, and they like to play outside. They can be very silly together and often will make funny faces and pose for our foster care manager!

Mateo, who is diagnosed with Down Syndrome, is described as a cheerful little boy who loves to attend school. Our foster care manager wrote once in her report that, “Mateo’s happiness infects everyone around him!”

Every day after school, Mateo is in charge of checking his foster family’s chicken for eggs. He is said to become frustrated with the chicken when she has not laid an egg! Mateo takes his responsibilities very seriously and will often go check on the chickens when he is home.


Mateo has thrived with his foster family and through attending school. We are so proud of him for all the progress he has made!


Mateo’s adoption file has been prepared and he is waiting to be chosen for adoption. What infectious joy this boy could bring to a family!

Love Without Boundaries proudly advocates for adoption but is not an adoption agency. We invite you to contact adoption@lwbmail.com with questions about a child we have featured and encourage you to contact your adoption agency for more information about China’s Waiting Child Program.
