China Waiting Child: Family Needed for Arlo

Arlo is a sweet 7-year-old boy who is described by his caretakers as lovely, a little shy, but full of energy. Arlo can pick his favorite toys to play with, can turn pages in a book, and can imitate sounds.

Arlo has been diagnosed with Down syndrome and would benefit greatly from additional resources, support, and the love of a forever family.

He is from one of AWAA’s former orphanage partnerships and his file is designated by the CCCWA as a special focus file, so families with an approved home study are eligible to review this file.

Please take a few minutes to consider how God would have you be a part of helping Arlo, whether that is through prayingadvocating, or inquiring to learn more.

You can learn more about the process of adopting from China on our China overview page as well as learn about eligibility requirements for a China adoption.

If you are interested in learning more about Arlo or adopting a child from China, please email our China team at or you can reach us by phone at  800-429-3369 for more information.
