Advocating For Adoption

"Our babies that are ready and waiting to be matched to a Forever Family" 


Our little Gong ZJ will be turning 3 years old in March. He is so sweet and his smile will melt your heart. His orphanage has told us that if we can find a family for him then they would be happy to prepare his adoption file.

Our Caleb just turned 7 years old. He was born with a medical condition called arthrogryposis which basically causes multiple joint deformities in his arms and legs. Caleb was 4 years old when he came to SHH and since that time he has had 6 different surgeries on his arms and legs. Now, with the help of his leg braces, he is able to walk and go up and down the stairs on his own. He enjoys going outside and kicking a soccer ball and going down the slide. The last surgery he had helped to straighten his wrist allowing him to be able to do more with his hands like feed himself and write. Despite his physical limits, Caleb does not let that get him down or stop him from trying to function independently. He is a very smart boy...he attends English and Chinese classes and is able to communicate well in both languages. 

Please check out his advocacy videos that are posted on our Facebook page at: and . Please like and share these videos.

Our little Pu FX adoption file is now ready! Pu FX is 7 1/2 years old and his medical conditions include scoliosis and external ear malformation. He has already had surgery on his back and he now wears a brace to support his back. He is currently waiting to have reconstructive surgery to construct an external ear canal. Right now in Shanghai the wait for this surgery is 2 years. While he waiting for his surgery, he wears a bone conducting hearing aid to help with his hearing. He came to SHH last year in order to receive speech therapy. He is doing well in his speech therapy classes and is learning to communicate some through signs and verbal communication. Pu FX is able to feed himself and walk without assistance. He is very outgoing and loves interacting with his caregiver and our volunteers. 

Please help us find a Forever Family for our little Pu FX by spreading the word and considering whether you might be his Forever Family.

Our little Luo SY’s international adoption file is ready so he is ready to be matched to his Forever Family. Luo SY is 5 years old. He was born with a cleft lip and palate that have both been repaired. Shortly after he came to SHH in 2016, we learned that he was deaf. Even though he is deaf, he finds other ways to communicate through non-verbal communication and some sign language. He is really smart and quick to pick up on the signs during our signing time class.
