The Tim Tebow Foundation has helped an American woman to take a 4-year-old boy, who was deaf and was abandoned by his parents in China. The boy can now hear after medical investigations and treatments, also sponsored by the Christian-athlete charity.

“I’ve always wanted to adopt. I just knew that that is how I wanted to build for my family,” says Christine Mullican in a video posted on YouTube by the foundation.


Mullican goes to share that they got an e-mail with the child’s picture says the boy, Alex, was deaf and was abandoned at a railway station in China. “His story is a sort of grabbed me,” she says. “So I immediately knew who our son was and that is when we started all of our papers.”

Her husband had just been hired for a new job at that time, when he suddenly died, and her “whole world fell apart.” Now they needed help to determine.

When she heard about the Tim Tebow Foundation and the grant for the establishment, that gave her a sense of peace and relief.” She was soon able to meet Alex.

“I had pictured the day of our meeting,” she recalls. “He was there, most unhappy-looking boy you’ve ever seen … scared.” But he began to smile and looked happy.
