The support of our giving family has made a difference in the lives of so many MVPs, and we are truly thankful! Because of their generosity, it’s now possible for the children we serve to experience Christmas in a whole new way. Children who once faced isolation, abandonment, and neglect are now loved, cherished, and cared for in their communities around the world.  A few of our MVPs, Thaddeus, Carlite, Jose, and Davika, share with you what Christmas means to them through their art and words.

Carlite, a patient at Tebow CURE Children's Hospital in the Philippines

“Christmas is a time to remember the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a time to give love and receive gifts. My best Christmas gift this year is my healing,” shared Carlite, an eleven-year-old girl born with clubfoot and a knee dislocation who recently had surgery at Tebow CURE Children’s Hospital. 
“I heard about Tebow CURE Children’s Hospital a few years ago, but we didn’t have the means to come due to the distance. Thankfully, God used kindhearted people, and we are finally here!” Carlite’s mom shared through tears of joy. 

Thaddeus, welcomed home through the TTF Adoption Aid program

Thaddeus Chung Hei was born in Hong Kong with Complex Congenital Cyanotic Heart Disease and had to fight through many surgeries as a baby. With support from the TTF Adoption Aid program, he was welcomed into the Moore family on June 16, 2023. He has grown to be strong and full of energy. He loves to laugh and joke around, and adores superheroes! When asked his thoughts on Jesus and Christmas, Thaddeus Chung Hei said, “I think I know — Jesus loves me and the WHOLE world, and Jesus died for us, but He’s alive now…and presents!” 

Jose, a student at Tebow Down Guatemala

Jose dreams BIG! Seventeen-year-old Jose, diagnosed with an intellectual disability, envisions a future where he can drive, have a girlfriend, enjoy a bustling social life like his siblings, and attend college thanks to the care he receives at Tebow Down Guatemala. In his home, Christmas is a time of joy and togetherness. Jose actively participates by helping put up the Christmas lights, while his dad adorns the roof with decorations. 

Davika, a survivor of trafficking cared for at one of TTF's Cottages in Thailand
