“So that I may come to you with joy, by God’s will, and in your company be refreshed.” Romans 15:22

9-year-old Megan is still waiting in Colombia for her forever family. We met this sweet, loving girl in August in Colombia and we fell in love with her instantly! We loved pushing her on the swings and chasing her around the playground—she was often giggling and smiling throughout our time together. You can watch video from our time with Megan here.

Megan is a positive, outgoing kid who in spite of her diagnosis, continues to be an energetic, happy little girl. This sweet girl has an infectious smile that just melted our hearts.

Megan is currently in the 1st grade. While she’s behind in school due to the schedule of her treatments, her foster family is helping her catch up and focus more on her homework. We are so happy to see that she is so well bonded to this family and know she would thrive within her own forever family!

Megan is so clearly a leader! From the way in which she led games with her peers, it’s clear this cutie isn’t afraid to show initiative. Megan is also so bubbly and affectionate! She wasn’t shy about giving out hugs to friends or her foster family.

Megan is definitely a girly-girl! She loves color, and it shows both in the way she dresses and in her artwork! Megan also loves to build with toys, play with baby dolls, dance, and sing. We think she would make an incredible artist someday—she is so magnetic and has an amazing presence!

While Megan has been through a lot, she still manages to be positive and a beacon of light to all those around her. Tragically, her mother brought her to ICBF when she was just a few months old because she lacked the resources to care for her. Shortly thereafter, this sweet baby girl was diagnosed with leukemia.

While Megan is in remission, doctors have shared with us that her leukemia could return and her body may not be able to tolerate treatment. Megan needs a family now so she can receive the love, care, and medical support she needs!

This amazing little girl needs a family’s love now more than ever. To learn more about Megan, please reach out to Soojin at or 971-244-1453.
