Ava “Wants a Family Like Other Children”

Ava is a young girl who will age out of the opportunity to be adopted in December of 2019 as she will turn 14.  She has 7 months left to find her forever family! Ava is described as quiet, but not afraid or timid when she is performing on stage. She expresses care for others and gets along well with other children and caretakers.

Overall, Ava is in good health. She has recovered well from several surgeries to repair her cleft lip & palate. Her caretakers note that she works hard in school, loves reading & sports, and has strong self-care abilities.

Ava said that she longs to have a family of her own and the love of a mother and father, like other children. A family will need to complete the adoption paperwork quickly. They need to be in China to finalize her adoption before she ages out at the end of December. Our hope and prayer is that Ava will receive the gift of adoption by Christmas 2019. We need your help to share her story!

Please take a few minutes to consider how God would have you be a part of helping this precious child, whether that is through praying, advocating, sharing with your church and social media networks, or inquiring to learn more.
