When two-year old Elijah arrived at his AASK home, his beautiful smile was hardly ever seen.  His adoptive parents spent tremendous amounts of time with Elijah and gave constant assurances that they would not leave him.  They helped him improved his verbal skills through stimulation and classes.  Now Elijah no longer tantrums and he seeks out his parents for a hug and snuggle.  He greets the AASK social worker with a huge grin and is off running, climbing and jumping.

Your gifts allow AASK staff to support families adopting children like Elijah
