Next is pretty Natalie with FTIA.
Natalie is a beautiful 12 year girl, but very shy. She has had surgery to repair her cleft and palate. Our medical team felt like she would still need some work on her palate and perhaps cosmetic work on her lip. She also has dental cavities. Natalie has lived with the same foster family for 10 years. They report that she takes care of herself and helps with the housework. Natalie does well in school and is currently in 6th grade. Her favorite activities are ping-pong and computer games. She has learned some English but is not comfortable with speaking. She is so shy and quiet and does lack confidence in herself. Natalie’s best friend is Sean, who tries to encourage her, and she is never far from his side! Natalie can be seen at the beginning of this video.

Next is cutie Drew who is also from FTIA.
Drew is a 4 1/2 year old whose beautiful face will capture you. Drew has congenital DY of the spinal column. We were unsure at first how Drew was physically affected by this condition, until we saw him jump down three stairs! His gross and fine motor skills are great! Drew is in kindergarten and his language is superior. He is confident, outgoing, and friendly. He toilets independently and performs many activities of daily living with minimal assistance. He is just an amazing boy. Our medical team suggests an MRI of the spine and possibly a surgery upon Drew’s placement with his family.

And lastly, darling Danny from LWB's blog.
My name is Danny. I am just two years old, am happy, and am loving life…despite the serious face I’m trying to put on for the camera!
I also enjoy an occasional treat from a visitor from LWB’s Nutrition Program. Snacks really make me happy, and I also love to visit the orphanage director’s office to see if he has left any on the table. I am a cooperative little guy, and I get along well with other children. My caregivers are very proud of me and tell me I am quite smart. I love to be active, and some of my favorite things are playing outdoors, dancing, and music. As you can see I am very curious and enjoy learning about new and interesting things.
Danny is such a little darling. Ironically, we think his serious face captures his silly side!
Due to Danny’s medical needs, his file will be available for matching through the Waiting Children Program. Danny is in need of a therapy that isn’t readily available in China, so finding a family is essential for him. Please contact your agency or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about making Danny your darling!
Thank you, everyone, for taking ten minutes out of your day to read this post and see this precious waiting children in China who just want a family that loves them. Please pray and search your hearts and see if you are their forever family that they've been waiting on.
