Sling wants a Family for Christmas


Sling was previously on Madison Adoption Associates' individual list, and we are grateful to have her referral file again so that we can continue to try to find her family.  Isn't she adorable?




Sling is 8 years old. She is studying at Grade One. Her foster mother says Sling loves to study and has a very good attitude towards school.  She does homework carefully and reviews the lesson, but she will forget it very quickly.


Sling can jump, run, climb stairs and she likes to skip rope.


Sling likes talking to people and asking questions. She speaks clearly and communicates well with her teachers and friends. She is extroverted, and she knows how to take care of others.


Sling gets along well with her classmates, kids in the neighborhood, and her little brother in the foster home. When she is taken to the orphanage for a monthly check-up, she will talk to the working staff.  Her teacher says Sling is very helpful. Once one of her classmates had a nose bleed, and Sling voluntarily accompanied her to the clinic. She was praised by the teacher.


If you are interested in finding out more about Sling, please contact Sara Lang at Sara@MadisonAdoption.org

Madison Adoption Associates provides Huainan Social Welfare Institute with a new van!

Huainan Van Plan 
- Putting Kids on the Road to an Education -


Thank you to the families who donated to MAA's Van Plan to help the children of Huainan Social Welfare Institute attend school.


In order to ensure that the children are able to attend school, MAA purchased a van for our orphanage partner, the Huainan Social Welfare Institute.  The van will better fit the needs of the children and be more cost-effective for the SWI.  It's a WIN-WIN for everyone!

Madison Adoption Associates introduces Annabell the Cow!

Annabell    Annabell the cow
No one will ever accuse the staff of MAA of not loving children and animals!  MAA was recently asked to help an adoptive family in need by purchasing a cow that will continue to provide for the family by teaching skills and responsibility to the older children AND produces a nutrient rich sustenance.

We are told that Annabell is expecting a calf next summer!  The blessings continue to multiply!!

Madison Adoption Associates
 Orphan Hosting Program 2015

MAA is beginning to plan now 
for the Summer 2015 Orphan Hosting Program.

 If you live in Illinois or Missouri and would like to learn more about hosting a child from China or Philippines, please contact Michelle@MadisonAdoption.org.

The exact dates are not set at this time, but the children will most likely be here during the month of July 2015.  Only families living in Illinois or Missouri can host because of the required supervision and group events.

Families are also needed to host the adults who accompany the children.  This is a great way to help the children, who cannot travel without these chaperones!
