Mel & Milton {Taiwan}

Prepare to have your heart melted… brothers Mel and Milton are such sweet peas! Their dark eyes and warm smiles could melt anyone’s heart in less than 60 seconds!



At first, 7 year old Milton came across as shy, but he slowly warmed up. Eager to be a big boy like his brother, Mel, he worked on a Lego set. With little guidance he was quick to catch on and get his set together. Of course this was all while keeping an eye on his Lego genius brother. At each successful connection Milton would look up and give me that full face smile. After the Legos were completed, within moments he was climbing up the fire pole and touching the ceiling.





11 year old Mel is one of the sweetest, most polite young boys I’ve ever met. Mel was quick to show how well he knew his way around Legos. Hands down he was the Lego genius of our trip - within just minutes he had the first of three kits together! The most memorable part was the smile that he got when he completed each set. When it was time to move on to the next station and I had the privilege of letting him know the Legos were his to keep… oh the excitement. His face lit up like a Christmas tree and in the most polite, happy voice he said in English, “Thank you!”




Mel and Milton are both healthy, with no special needs, and are doing very well in school. Mel told us he loves to cook and wants to be a chef when he grows up. Milton told us he has a best friend in his class that he likes to play with each day. 



These brothers are searching for a place to call home. Be prepared to have your heart melted for the rest of your life…Could these boys be your sons? Could you be their forever family? For more information on Mel and Milton, please contact Mary Chapman at mary.chapman@gladney.org
