Seven-year-old Hiro is a sweet and helpful little boy whose caregivers describe him as having a “sunny personality.”
He came into care when he was just one day old, and has lived in his care center in China since he was a baby.
Hiro loves his friends, and has many interests and talents. He likes playing with remote control cars and Legos, loves working on art projects and also enjoys sports like soccer and rock climbing. He is confident and curious, imaginative and expressive. He likes to read and play games with his friends, and loves to help others.
Hiro has congenital heart disease and will need a family with the resources to meet his medical needs. Mostly, though, he just needs a loving, permanent family to support him as he pursues his interests and explores the world around him.
Charlize is a smart and active girl who loves school and is a talented artist.
Charlize came into orphanage care in China when she was 5 years old. When she was 6, she was adopted domestically in China, but her adoptive parents relinquished her back to the orphanage a year and a half later. Now 11, Charlize longs for a permanent, loving family of her own.
Charlize loves school, and though she doesn’t get as much support as she would if she lived in a family, she is succeeding in her classes! She is especially good at languages — Chinese and English — as well as math and art. She gets along well with her teachers and peers, and communicates herself well.
In August 2018, Charlize was reported to have moderate anemia and physical delays, but our social work staff has not seen indications of these delays in her videos or other information.
Charlize has been through several transitions in her young life, but she is brave and full of hope that she will one day have the love and stability of an adoptive family.
Could you be the right family for Charlize? For more information about this brave girl, contact Alycia Fahr-Zarlons at email@example.com.
