Waiting to be Chosen: Jansen

November 20, 2018 Children Who Wait 0 Comments

Well isn’t he the cutest little graduate you ever did see? Jansen is a precious little boy, born in October of 2010, who is described as lovely and admirable by his caretakers.



He is independent and takes care of himself by getting dressed and bathing independently. Jansen enjoys playing with toys of all sorts and watching cartoons on TV.

At the time his file was prepared, Jansen was in 1st grade at a public school. He can recognize and read Chinese characters, draw well, and enjoys singing. He writes his name and really likes reciting poems.

Jansen is diagnosed with a congenital heart defect – mitral and tricuspid regurgitation, as well as cleft hands, and differences in his left foot. He is noted to have had surgery for dislocated hips.

It’s hard to understand why Jansen has waited for his family to see him as long as he has. We sure hope that his family sees him this year and that he might be able to be home with a forever family to celebrate his next birthday!



There is a $1,000 agency grant for Jansen’s adoption with Madison Adoption Associates. Other grants may be available based on the adoptive family’s circumstances. Agency grants are awarded as agency fee reductions. MAA also partners with the Brittany’s Hope Foundation for matching grants, which are given out twice a year January and July) and to families that are officially matched with a child.

Jansen needs a family with an approved home study to be able to move forward with adopting him. If you have an approved home study or a home study in process and are interested in adopting Jansen, please fill out a free PAP Waiting Child Review Form, which can be found here.
