China Waiting Child: Family Needed for “Leo”

Leo is a 2-year-old little boy who lives in a simulated foster home, which is a smaller family setting typically on the grounds of the orphanage. He gets along well with the other children and enjoys playing ball and hide-and-seek. He focuses well on play and activities and is close to his caretakers. He can communicate through actions and responds to his name.  At 16 months, he was able to crawl and at 19 months he could stand with support.

Leo was diagnosed with Down syndrome and has not had any illnesses since entering the orphanage.

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, or inquiring to learn more.
