PRC
osteochondrodysplasia (dwarfism)

A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E five year old Emerson is diagnosed with osteochondrodysplasia (dwarfism). At 5 years old, after a period of acupuncture and moxibustion, Emery could change positions from lying on his stomach to sitting. He could stand with support and could walk with one hand being held. He could walk forward by pushing a small cart. He is still receiving acupuncture and moxibustion therapy. He knows his gender, understands big and small, in and out, and he can take off simple unlined clothes. He can wash his hands without help and he can help people do things he is capable of doing. Emery is docile and adorable. He gets along well with other, likes to be held, teased and accompanied. He will smile when he is happy and he likes to listen to music. Emery will dance along with the music. Emerson is a beautiful little boy! Who will be blessed to be his lucky family?

MANY videos available from the agency.

Aniah_April 2016Age: 13
Diagnosis: dwarfism

 

Aniah walks, plays with toys, enjoys music class and playing hide and seek. She is not talking at this time, but responds to her name and basic commands.

Photos and videos from April 2016 are available through the agency.

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

Janelle taggie 2 Janelle 3Guardian AngelGirl, Born June 2007

Isn’t Janelle pretty? She was born with CP and struggles some with epilepsy. She is not able to walk on her own, but would such a blessing to any family.

She will remain bed/chair-ridden for life if she is not adopted. More photos available.

From her medical records: microcephaly. Spastic tetraparesis (CP), steady movement
violation. Episyndrome J 80-83, Q 02, J 40.6. Strabismus. ZPMR.

This region typically waives the 10 day waiting period for children with special needs.

Update March 2014:
Janelle is very frail, very tiny. She is about the size of a 6-9 month old, and very pale. She has beautiful reddish light brown hair and eyes that are about the same color. She appears very weak, and doesn’t interact much. They are very concerned about why she is not growing and have her on a special diet. She is clearly a favorite of one of the nannies, who was carrying her the entire time (which is wonderful in terms of mental and emotional health and sensory input, and to decrease issues of psychosocial dwarfism). She does not interact much, but this may be due to her weakened state. She is alert and watches what is happening. She needs a loving mama and daddy to get her the medical care she so desperately needs- and fast.

Aimey_Nov 2015 Aimey2_Nov 2015Age: 13
Diagnosis: Osteochondrodysplasia (dwarfism)

Aimey has reduced fees through the agency.

After birth, Aimey was placed in an orphanage for children with brain damage and then transferred at age 4 to a notorious mental institution. She has lived her entire life in settings where she had no chance to develop her cognitive skills or any true life experiences simply because they looked at her medical diagnosis and assumed that she could not learn. The mental institution where she lived for over 10 years was recently closed and she is now living in a group home where she has the chance to attend school and learn life skills. As a result of all of the years of living in an inappropriate environment, Aimey is considered moderately delayed, though it is believed that the cognitive impairments are all a result of her environment. She now has a limited time to find a family before she will “age out” and be sent to an adult institution to live out the rest of her life.

Aimey moves around independently and walks on her own. She goes up and down stairs while holding on to the rails. She is not confident when throwing and catching a ball. The fine motor skills are developed, though they don’t correspond to the norms for the age. She aligns several blocks one next to the other. She tries to fit in figures by imitation. Her favorite toy is a form for sand. She memorizes after many repetitions and for a short time. Her thinking is specific and visual. Her notions and concepts are in the process of forming. She doesn’t recognize her colors and shapes. The emotional tone of the child is positive. She is well adapted in the group of children. She plays with the children and doesn’t seclude. She participates in group activities. She loves going to school. When she wants to establish a contact with an adult, she looks at them and persistently watches them for a long time, laughs, waives for “hello” and “bye”. She eats independently with a spoon and is not picky. She drinks from a cup on her own. She can undress independently but needs help for dressing. She is interactive and seeks attention from the adults.

Photos and videos from November 2015 are available through the agency.

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