Another Urgent Need: 13-Year Old, “Blake” Needs a Family Soon!

Blake is a handsome, healthy 13-year-old boy in need of a family. He participated in our hosting program this summer 2015 and is now back in China and registered for international adoption. The other children who were hosted this summer have been matched with a family, and Blake is eager to have a family of his own. His friends are being adopted by families in VA, PA, IL, and SC and he would love to live near one of his friends, if possible. 

Because it is a Chinese law that a child must be adopted before their 14th birthday, it is important that Blake is matched with a family very soon so the adoption can be finalized by August 2016 when he will turn 14. 

Blake enjoys playing basketball, listening to music and interacting with his classmates. He gets along well with his foster family. Those that interacted with him during the hosting period last summer shared that he is quiet & reserved, but did well in groups and interacting with others. We learned that he loves turtles and is good at miniature golf. He needs encouragement to try new things, but was excited to learn a new skill once he tried.

Blake's file is from one of our partnership orphanages and his file is designated as special focus so someone considering adoption or in any stage of the process is eligible to review his file. His file needs to be returned to China on Monday, December 21st. Please advocate for Blake by sharing his story with others & praying for him.

If your family is interested in learning more about Blake, please contact our China team at or by phone at 800.429.3369 and our team would be happy to share more with your family.
