Celebrate Thirteen

In October, Liam will celebrate his 13th birthday.  This is a big milestone for most children!  At 13, we celebrate with our own children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren that they are now “officially a teen!”  Their little chests puff with pride.  We attend middle school programs, send them off to sport camps in the summer, watch them run around with their friends, and try to encourage them to stay motivated in school.  We love hard, and wonder how our babies have grown into beautiful, handsome, loving “teens.”

In Liam’s birth country, 13 can be a little scary.  This will be the last year that Liam is eligible to be adopted internationally, something he truly hopes for.  Liam’s caregivers explain that he is happy living in his orphanage, however when he sees his friends being adopted, he is eager for the love of a forever family of his own.

12 looks good on Liam.  He loves sports, especially ping pong!  Liam gets along well with other children, enjoys school, and is known to set an example for the younger ones in his orphanage.  Liam underwent surgery to repair a cleft lip and cleft palate when he was young, and has thrived ever since.

Liam’s caregivers love him very much, and know he will light up his family’s world.  So much so, that when asked to describe him, they simply chose “sunshine.”  Liam is an artist, friend, and sweet soul.  Let’s make his 13th year something to celebrate.
