A Family For Lettie

40720105029 LettieOnce upon a time, there was this hilariously not-so-little family, who kept thinking they were missing somebody. The sisters in the family kept voting for a little girl, to help even out the numbers, and the boys thought a baby sister would be awesome. So the mommy and the daddy prayed, and talked, and waited for God’s direction. Then one day, it came! And WOW- it’s time to go! There’s a little girlie waiting, fearfully and wonderfully made by the Creator, just waiting to be snuggled and kissed and loved to pieces by her well-prepared and experienced soon-to-be family.

They’re ready to travel soon, so if you have a few dimes or nickels or a random unused inheritance (haha!) that you’d like to toss in to help them get her home quickly, it would be greatly appreciated! While they’re keeping it all rather hush hush right now, you better believe that once that referral is accepted and they can share that she’s theirs, you’ll be bombarded with pictures!

Thank you all for your prayers, and support!!!!

Iverson #

IvanBoy, 4 years old
Spina bifida (post-op), non-foregoing hydrocephalus (will NOT need a surgery), luxation of the hip joints (which can be fixed by a surgery), One leg motor function and sensitivity are kept, after the surgery it is very possible he could use this leg
Kidneys are functioning normally; incontinent.

Iverson is very sweet and nice – the staff is adamant that the child has a lot of potential and individual work with him can make a significant progress.

Iverson is emotionally positive – when we went to take the pictures and the videos, he started crying for a while because he was surrounded by 7 people, but stopped crying in a few minutes and gave us a smile that we tried to catch on the video.

He likes to examine books and watching movies – he has a quite smart look and he is interested in every noise and all he sees. Iverson uses very well his upper limbs – his own moves and rotates his chair.

Iverson is trying to speak, but we could not catch him – it was only once for a few seconds, but the staff said he speaks a lot but at his own language, doesn’t pronounce very well (all the kids in orphanages have the same problem because of the luck of personal attention). He initiates contact with adults.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

SAMUEL for the May family — PA

Samuel MayJoe and Audra May knew that a seed had been planted in their hearts and that adoption was in their future when they left a Steven Curtis Chapman concert in February of 2002. Expecting their first of what was to be 3 biological daughters at that time, they didn’t know when that might be. However, they committed to praying and seeking the Lord. 10 years later their bio daughters now 9,6 and 3, God had indeed called them forward to adopt, as they had already started the process in July of 2011. They were seeking to adopt a special needs little girl through China’s waiting child program. At the end of February 2012, they had found their daughter, Emmalin. She was living at Maria’s Big House of Hope, the same home co-founded by Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth Chapman in honor of their daughter Maria. God had brought the connection to Steven and the seed for adoption had blossomed in their hearts and came full circle.

After traveling to China and visiting not only the orphanage Emmalin spent time in but also Maria’s Big House of Hope, as well as experiencing the miracle of adoption, their hearts had been forever changed. Joe and Audra began to pray and seek the Lord’s plans for their lives and whether God was calling them to adopt again. They had also learned and were very heartbroken for the thousands of little boys, more than little girls waiting for their forever family in China. February 2014, Audra stumbled upon the picture of a little boy on a waiting child page and she was immediately smitten. She was also surprised to realize that he was the same age and had the same medical condition, a form of Spina Bifida, as their daughter Emmalin. After sharing the little boy’s picture with Joe, who wasn’t ready to leap yet, they committed to praying. After a few weeks of prayer God revealed to them that the little boy was indeed their son and they were blessed to be able to pursue adopting him. This adoption, as was Emmalin’s is a complete leap of faith. Having no adoption funds to begin, God continues to pour out his blessings and open the doors as they pursue Samuel. Joe and Audra know that God can easily call the able to adopt but he often calls the willing and that’s what they are, willing to do the Lord’s work and to go where he calls them.

The May family is very excited and eager to bring Samuel home. They are eager to have their first little boy in the family and their daughter Emmalin is especially excited. Joe and Audra have been very open with Emmalin concerning her adoption. Through many conversations she already understands and likes to share with others wherever they go, that Samuel is from China and will be adopted just like her!

The May family would covet your prayers for their family and Samuel as they journey to bring him home. They are also blessed and so very thankful for any financial blessing they receive, no amount is too small.

FRANKIE for the Deerman family — AL

Frankie 2

God has richly blessed our family. God allowed me the honor of marrying my “high school” sweet heart. He blessed us with two children who are an amazing gift to my wife and I. We are a close family who loves time together and are thrilled to be in the process of bringing home our son from China! We began our adoption journey with a beautiful little boy we met on Reece’s Rainbow by the name of “Ellison”. The door to adoption closed when the Russian adoption law changed. Like many families our hearts were broken and we grieved…but God in his wonderful timing led us to this precious little guy who we can not wait to bring home as part of our family. I am a pastor in Alabama and my wife is a social worker. We, along with our children, are grateful that God in His great mercy is allowing us the privileged of adopting Frankie. I can not wait for the day when we are able to bring Frankie home. We love him dearly and he already is being used by God to teach us more about God’s great love and mercy.

Please pray for us as we continue in the adoption process. Pray for “Ellison” and the other children of Russia that God would provide loving homes for each child. Pray for Frankie… God has wonderful plans for the wonderful little boy and I am honored to have a front row seat to watch His beautiful work unfold.

Boone #473

473_Photo_Apr13Boy, nearly 2-years-old
a condition after surgery for internal hydrocephalus (valve installation) and meningomyelocele regio thoracolumbalis; lower flaccid paraplegia; equinovarus in the right slight convergent strabismus of the left eye.

The child performs a full range of movements with his upper limbs. His latest check-up examination with a neurosurgeon was in March, 2014: head circumference 46 cm; the child is in a good general condition, conscious, satisfactory tonus, with clinical evidence of normal functioning of the shunt.

The boy plays with different toys in a different manner. He prefers musical toys.The child is emotional. He smiles, laughs and rejoices when involved in joint games and activities. He distinguishes between familiar and unfamiliar people. He is insistent in seeking adults’ attention and affection. The boy imitates sounds and is trying to pronounce his first words.

 

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

Astor #472

472_photo2_Jul14472_photo1_Jul14Boy, 5 years old
hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, symptomatic epilepsy (no seizures and medication since Jan 2011), latent infantile cerebral palsy and mild mental delay.

He walks independently; his gait is stable, although characterized by some CP features. He gradually improves his coordination and movements.

He eats well independently. He drinks from a cup with a little help by an adult. He uses the potty purposefully but he does not control his physiological needs yet, although he has developed notions about them. The boy takes off his shoes, socks and trousers by himself. He enjoys helping with household chores: cleaning the table, putting the toys back on their places, arranging objects and throwing garbage at the respective places

He seeks getting attention and interactions with familiar adults and he easily establishes contact with strangers as well. He prefers interacting with adults but he also joins some of the joint activities with the children from his group- he watches them and tries to do what they do. He follows various instructions very well, even such that have been addressed to another child. He can easily be persuaded with words.

The child has slightly delayed development. He shows good results from the physical therapy and pedagogical rehabilitation. The staff at the orphanage reports that this boy has very good potential for further development if raised in a family environment.

Update July 2014

The boy is very sociable and extremely responsive to interactions. He maintains very stable eye contact, listens intently to what he is told, responds adequately, smiles back at people, initiates interactions and comes up with his own ideas about what to do.

He is very independent and often refused help during my visit and preferred to try harder and do things by himself.
He has such a good attention span for a child his age and he obviously greatly enjoys being involved in educational activities.

As reported by the orphanage psychologist, he is striving for perfection and would not stop performing a given task until everything is in order and in the right place. He would not proceed to a next task before putting the things from the previous one back where they belong and he would not leave a room before closing its door. He is quite sharp and does not need instructions to be repeated to him. He is eager to please and get adults’ approval and praise. He is not embarrassed to seek an adult’s help when needed.

It is very easy to communicate with him, despite his unclear pronunciation. He has a lot to share and does whatever it takes to make himself understood and make his wishes known. Seeing how he is doing in an orphanage environment, he would undoubtedly just flourish in a family.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

Nadia 2563Girl, 5 1/2 years old

He sits actively and makes attempts to pull up to a standing position by holding on to a support. He demonstrates motion activity and initiative. He gets to an object desired by him. If a toy is taken away from him by another child, he cries. He is with good visual-motor coordination (eye-hand, hand-hand), picks up objects and transfers them from one to another hand, all the while the eyes following the movements. He traces with a look a falling object. He follows with a look in all four directions (left/right/up/bottom). He has a palmar grip. He plays with the toys according to their purpose.

He hums 2-3 melodies of children’s songs. He makes a good eye contact. He is in the beginning stage of imitation. He is calm and with good emotional tonus. He is emotionally responsive. He purposefully seeks the contacts with adults and children. He demonstrates jealousy if not paid attention. He is easily calmed down when picked up.

Diagnosis: Achondroplasia (dwarfism) and delays in his development

Alexander lags behind in his physical development. At the time of his medical report, he could roll from back to stomach, but was not yet sitting up. He was pronouncing combinations of sounds. He plays with toys and enjoys musical games and activities. He seeks out interactions with other children and adults.

More details about his development, along with new photos and videos will be obtained.

Malachi #4-10

MalachiAge: 1
Diagnosis: Hypothyroidism

After birth, doctors suspected Malachi had Down syndrome. They later decided that he did not, but no genetic testing was ever done. His heart was checked at the national cardiology hospital and was determined to be normal. He’s also had brain scans, hip Xrays and other testing, which is all normal. At this time, his only medical diagnosis is hypothyroidism and he is on medication for this condition.

Malachi has been living with a foster family since he was just a few months old. He stands up in his crib holding on to the side. He sits independently and crawls. He walks while holding on to an adult’s hand. He currently has 8 teeth and eats from a spoon. He waves hello/goodbye and claps his hands to cheer. He listens when spoken to and laughs out loud when teased. He differentiates between familiar and non familiar people. He picks up and holds toys. He is saying individual words. He loves to be hugged and smiles when spoken to.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.

WESLEY for the Vinson family — TX

Wesley NewTim and Jamie Vinson married in 2004, and adopted their first child in February 2011, a beautiful 2 year old with albinism.  This lucky little boy was named Chanz.  Three years later, after much therapy, rehab and love, Chanz was ready for a sibling!  The Vinson’s expected to adopt a tiny girl, but God had other plans.  As soon as Jamie saw Wesley’s story, she knew that boy belonged to them.  Tim agreed immediately, and so the journey began!

AMBER and PATRICK for the Marion family — WV

AmberDave and Lisa have been married for 20 years. They were blessed with 3 children through adoption – 2 domestic and 1 from China, and for several years their family felt complete. While remaining open to adoption, they focused more on encouraging other families, and helped their agency to open a branch in their own town. When asked to participate in a panel on International adoption, they eagerly agreed to share their experiences. The next day, Dave told Lisa, “I think we need to go back to China.” The kids were enthusiastic, preferring adoption to a trip to Disney World and a pet “hampster” and it was decided that a brother and sister would be just the right addition to the family. Because Dave and Lisa were open to adopting older children with minor special needs, they started watching their agency’s Waiting Child list. After much searching and prayer, they chose 10 year old Patrick and 6 year old Amber. The paperwork trail is complete, and they hope to travel in October to bring their children home!

SILVIE for the Schultz family — WI

Silvie (2)Kelly and Bill met at a 4th of July celebration 3 years ago.  Mutual friends decided to play matchmaker and succeeded!  Bill asked Kelly out for coffee the next day and they spent the night talking about everything!  The coffee shop closed and they moved on to McDonald’s to finish off the night and the “rest is history!”  Kelly was quite the package deal bringing 7 children into the relationship; she knew Bill was “the one” when he jumped right in and became an instant part of the family!  They were married on May 04, 2013 and moved into their new house in June.  In July Kelly asked him if he was ready to start an adoption.  He didn’t say no (Lol) so she called and set up a homestudy for the beginning of August.  Rowen joined their family from Serbia on January 30, 2014!  Rowen has that extra special 47th chromosome and everyone fell instantly in love with him so they quickly decided that Eight Was Not Enough and they are heading to China to bring home Silvie as soon as possible!  Any help with fundraising is greatly appreciated since they so recently completed Rowen’s adoption.

JANIE for the Long family — NC

 photo fwbutton150.pngJanie Photo 2 - April 2014The story of redemption is powerful. One that speaks to the heart of all men and begs the question, “why me?” Yet in the life and very death of Jesus Christ – we see the act of redemption, reaching out to the poor and desperate, seeking those who needed to be found, healing those who were sick, sinful, and hopelessly lost. Ultimately Christ gave the ultimate gift, His very life, to redeem all people from sin and He continues to give the gift of eternal life to all who believe.

The theme of redemption echoes in our very souls, moving us forward to show the love of God to others – just as Jesus did for us. In Hebrews we are commanded, “And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” Hebrews 13:16.

It is with this in mind, that Matt and Katie have begun a new journey that God has laid before them. It will be a long road, with possible disappointment and frustration, but overflowing with blessing beyond measure and the fulfillment that comes when obedient to God’s leading. Adoption.

A little girl has been calling to their hearts, “come, take me home.” She is an orphan. She has been waiting her entire life for her very own family. She has Down syndrome and cataracts and needs a family who will love her, support her, and help her reach her full potential.

God has uniquely equipped them to understand the needs of children with Down syndrome, by giving them a son with Down syndrome. They are surrounded by an amazing network of family, friends, church members, doctors and educators who share the same passion for helping those in need. They have been uniquely prepared to welcome another child into their home, because they have 5 children of their own and have experienced a myriad of trials and tribulations .

Matt and Katie are anxious to meet their new daughter and covet your prayers, words of encouragement and partnership with them on this new journey.

Sally #25-55

Sally (1) Sally (2)Girl, born 2011
Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. Agenesis of right kidney.

 

Motor Development – she turns independently and many times from back to stomach and vice verse. She makes attempts to sit up on her own and when the upper part of the body is lying down on the slightly raised support, she is able to sit up without any help. She is happy from everything that she achieved alone and is looking for a suitable place to lie down and exercise alone the sitting. She moves in space by moving herself in seated position. She actively uses the opportunities for movement. The child shows desire for walking and held by an adult by the armpits, she walks with diligence, but she has no stable support in her legs, sank/drops herself, and holds her legs bent at the knees and wide apart, often raises her legs in the air and does not touch the floor. When climbing stairs when held by adult, she steps steadily on her feet and rotates them consecutively, stepping on the next step. When placed in a walker she moves by pushing herself with her chest. When placed reclining in front of adult, she exercise pressure with her foot on a cylinder module.

Habits – developmental age – 12 months. She drinks from a cup with adult’s help, feeds with a spoon given by adult, bites off but does not chew the food, she just sucks it putting it on her palate. She alone takes a piece of bread put on the table, with her lips. She shows desire for independent feeding and enjoys when the spoon is put in her hand. She reluctantly accepts when placed on pot, but more often performs her physiological needs in it.

Pictorial activity – 15 months. She alone leaves traces on a paper, holding the pencil with lips. She is happy of joint drawing with adult, with a pencil placed between her fingers.

Emotional-social development – developmental age – 24 months – with positive attitude, feisty. She shows initiative and independence. The child reacts with joy of close to her adult’s approval and with displeasure to ban, she is radiant, calm, and actively spends the awake time. She enters in interaction with the other children in the group.

Speech – developmental age – 21 months. She understands adult’s the speech, pronounces 10-12 words – sentences. She tries to connect two words in a sentence. More often expresses her reluctance for something, in verbal way. She makes transfer of her vision, received from the perception of real object, in the perception of the relevant image on the picture and identifies them – she names 5 images in pictures – ball, phone, cup, shoes, baby.

Update July 2014.
Yesterday we visited the little girl 2555. We are amazed by this little girl – she is one of the sweetest girls I have ever seen and at the same time she is fighter who doesn’t want to give up on the smallest of things! She is so full of energy and life! She is very smart and intellectually preserved, and mentally developing very well! Her potential is huge! I am honestly in love with this little girl! She made me laugh as she is really funny, smile with tenderness, and at the same time, I had tears in my eyes knowing that she still does not have a family to help her and love her through the difficulties she is going through. The orphanage staff helps her a lot and takes the best possible care for her but they can never be compared to what mommy and daddy can give. I truly hope that the family forever for little girl will find her very soon!
