andruis-2015Born December 31, 2000
Down syndrome

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2014!   From one of our adoptive families who visited with him:  “The institution he is living in has undergone a lot of changes in the last year after a new director was appointed. The building has been remodeled so that the children now live in family style groups with multiple bedrooms for two children each, a living room, small kitchen, dining room, two bathrooms, laundry room and a visiting area. During free time the children move around between the rooms as they please and we have seen the children in Andruis’ group helping with some of the daily living tasks – clearing dishes, vacuuming, assisting children who cannot feed themselves and so on.  Andruis is in a group with seven other children of varying ages and special needs. He is a very quiet, peaceful, gentle boy. He prefers to play with dolls and stuffed animals and he generally keeps his distance from the loudest and most active children. We watched him sit with a much smaller, weaker child who crawled on Andruis and stroked his hair for a solid half an hour and Andruis was not at all defensive or rough with the littler boy. His caregivers say that he does not speak, but hears and understands what is said to him. He can dress and use the bathroom with minimal assistance. He has had trouble with his teeth since being transferred to the institution and eats only soft foods, but he feeds himself neatly and clears his own dishes when he is finished. He is shy and new people in his environment cause him to withdraw a bit, but I saw him snuggle up to and smile at a familiar caregiver and he interacts appropriately with the other children in the group.   He attends a nearby school for children with special needs and participates in many therapies and activities. If he is not adopted he will remain at the same institution for the rest of his life, moving from the children’s to the adult’s wing when he turns 21. The director is very interested in seeing children adopted, but a bit incredulous that anyone would want them. Our daughter is the first child ever to be adopted, domestically or internationally, from this institution. It would be wonderful if Andruis could be the second!”  

Thank God for a new photo and updated info about Andruis!    He is a New Year’s Eve baby, so he brings the promise of great things in every new year!   Andruis has some hearing loss and wears hearing aids. He continuously receives speech and music therapy.  As you can see from his photo, he is doing well, but desperately needs a family as he has been living at the institution since 2007.   Andruis attends the 5th grade at the special needs school.    He is able to walk/run and is active.  He smiles and is affectionate, but shy around people he doesn’t know.   He does not have much speech at all, but so much of this is due to his poor hearing.   Imagine how is world could open up with improved hearing aids!     His entire world, everything he processes, is delayed due to hearing impairment….signing may be the key to opening his whole world.  He is able to eat on his own.  He needs help with self-care/hygiene.   Andruis has SO much potential in a loving family.  He’s been waiting SO long and has lost so much time when he should have been at home!

From his medical records:  born premature at 35 weeks, 4th pregnancy.  Down syndrome, cognitively delayed, cochlear neuritis – hearing impairment. Atopic dermatitis. Hypermetropia on both eyes.   FULL MEDICAL RECORDS available upfront.

This is a GREAT country program, with excellent health and social care, and full medical records available upfront.    Andruis has been listed with us for many years, it’s his turn to find a family!   Interested families should be home study approved (or close to it)  to adopt an older institutionalized child and should not have very young children in the home.

Experienced adoptive families may be the best fit for Andruis.   Please inquire!   He is running out of time.

  • Married couples only (married at least 2 1/2 years)
  • Parents must be 18 years older than child; no more than 50 years old
  • Two unrelated children can be adopted together
  • Two trips are required

EmmalineGirl, born June 2002

PRC
Down syndrome

 

Emmaline is well behaved, lovely and cute. Sometimes when she feels injustice from other children, she would act as a spoiled child in the cuddle of a teacher. As she grows up everyday, we feel happy yet we worry about her, because she is very sensitive and is able to understand what the teachers tell her. Sometimes she could do something out of predict. She has a good friend and they are called “golden partners” just because they are always together whatsoever playing or eating. They share things well and they even do things together such as cleaning floors.

We remember that once she found one shoe on the air conditioning, and she wanted to get it down, however, she was not tall enough and she babbled telling her friend.  The friend took a chair, Emmaline stepped on the chair in order to get the shoe, and finally, she made it.  She really surprised us at that time. She is really amazing. She could think of using a chair to help to get the shoe to finish her goal.

Unfortunately, she seldom speaks, which is the thing that we worry about her the most. Only give her more stimulate of language skills such as doing some oral gym to help her learn simple words, could she incorporate herself into this society well.

DOB: 2001

Diagnosis: Down syndrome

Ryan is 12 years old. He has been in an institutionHis gross motor skills are well developed. He walks, runs, climbs and prefers physical activities. He exhibits some stereotypical movements. He plays with toys and attempts to manipulate them correctly. He requires 1:1 assistance for academic tasks. He is currently being instructed in how to trace letters, though he still requires assistance with this task. He tries to fit shapes into puzzles. He can arrange blocks and builds towers with them. He likes to arrange the chairs in stacks. He eats independently, though he’s still working on hygiene in related to table skills. He does put away his own dishes once he’s done eating. He can dress himself, but he does not undress himself independently. His personal hygiene skills are not built up at this time. During art class, he requires assistance with coloring and art projects. He can glue items onto paper if the items are pre-cut for him. His emotions and attention are unstable. He is hyperactive and doesn’t always follow the rules. He exhibits difficult behaviors when he doesn’t get his way or doesn’t want to do something. He is sometimes aggressive with objects and with his peers. He enjoys dancing and prefers to participate in activities and play that involve a ball and interacting with children who are more physical.

Additional information: Ryan has been visited by an experienced adoptive family and members from an adoption team well experienced in observing children with special needs. During the visits, he exhibited aggression toward the adults and staff members from the institution. He had difficulty following basic instructions from the staff and often didn’t respond to his name. He did seem to enjoy interacting in small amounts with the adults, though he wanted those interactions on his terms. He did not respond well to restrictions or being made to do things that he did not want to do. He will need a family willing to provide a lot of structure, routine and consistency in behavior management.

Additional photos and videos of Ryan from October 2012 are available.

Boy, born November 2000

Down syndrome, neurodystrophy, psychological and motor development disorder, alalia

So glad to have a new photo of Duane!  He’s making silly faces for you.

From a volunteer who visited with him in July 2014:  ” Duane is a wonderful boy, but he doesn’t get the attention he deserves. It is getting harder to interact with him. He responds less and less when you try to interact with him. Even when you are interacting with him, he loses interest and he will lay on the floor again.

 

He is best friends with Isolde, but she has been put in a different group now. Nobody ever puts them together, so that’s what we did this summer. The nurses first wouldn’t let us, but we explained that they are best friends and then it was okay. They hugged for minutes, until he was getting weaker (his legs aren’t really strong) and he lay down on the floor again. Isolde tried to get him to hug some more or to play a game through the bars from the playpen, but he didn’t react anymore. I’m afraid that next year he’ll be worse again. He needs to get out. Duane has some language, but is mainly non-verbal. He shows no aggressive behaviors, but as said, he is getting weaker, he is showing less and less behaviors at all. Someone needs to go and get him out of there.”

From someone who met Duane in 2012:  Sweet little Duane is the huggiest boy I’ve ever met! He is a determined, strong willed little guy and is up walking and chasing after balls despite some mild CP on his left side that causes his left knee to extend backwards in a painful looking manner. He has an amazing laugh, though it is sometimes a mischievous laugh. He sometimes feels the need to push boundaries, such as throwing balls at the other children, but he is a boy with a lot of love to give, both to the adults and the other kids in his group. He also sometimes gives massages. I feel he would especially thrive in a house where he is the youngest, or at least the smallest child in the home.

Significant features of FAS, shared as a cautionary disclosure for families considering his needs.

Duane’s best friend is Isolde; they could be adopted together.  Elinor, Devora, Isolde, Julia,  Sullivan, Artemur, Duane, Abner and Irina may all be in the same region.

ALIVE and WAITING!

A question was raised about whether Kiersten had passed away, but this photo was taken March 14, 2012 😉 She still needs a family!

Isn’t Kiersten beautiful? She is 15 years old but is still very much a toddler. She is not able to walk on her own. There is nothing in her medical records to indicate why she is so delayed, and she does not show obvious facial features of FAS…her needs are quite unknown.

From her medical records: significant mental delay, congenital hypothyroidism

As with all children living in these difficult conditions, this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger. It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child. These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.

loss of vision in one eye / some hearing loss (wears hearing aids)

Toni is a beautiful girl who recently turned 13 years old. She has less than one year to find a new family, after which time she will be ineligible for adoption. She came into care as an abandoned child when she was about 2 years old. They discovered she had vision loss in one eye. They thought at that time she was totally deaf. She was placed with a foster family, who taught her to use some basic signs. After a while, the foster mother realized Toni could hear louder sounds and voices. Toni has attended a school for the deaf since last year, where she receives speech therapy. She is now wearing hearing aids, which have enhanced her hearing. Toni is learning to speak. She is able to hear well enough to follow spoken directions. Toni can do addition to 100, and she can write her name. She has excellent self care abilities, and can also help out in caring for the younger children. Toni sets the table, and folds her own laundry. She is very polite. Toni’s caregiver has been encouraging her to be more out going and enthusiastic. She loves to play outdoors with her friends, and is very active. Toni enjoys drawing and making handicrafts, and in her quiet time, watches cartoons and other TV shows. In her videos, you can see how serious Toni appears. She realizes her time to find a family is short, and she is concerned. Toni needs a family who will help her learn all she has missed educationally, and help her blossom.

Girl, born 2001

Down syndrome

Update May 2012:
Dawn lived in an orphanage until she was three, when they moved her to an institution.

She just started walking a couple of months ago. She enjoys interacting with adults and playing with toys. Her favorite activities and toys revolve around music. She understands what is said to her but does not have any meaningful speech at this time. She reacts very positively to attention, smiles and cheers when adults interact with her. She attends a class at the institution, but does not go to school outside of the institution. She has not had the opportunity to experience many of the ordinary activities that other children her age are naturally exposed to due to the length of time she’s been institutionalized. She doesn’t have any medical or behavioral concerns. She just needs a family willing to look past her age to see her potential!

In Asia, many people believe it’s important to welcome the new year with new clothes. Eight-year-old Winnie is so proud of her new coat and is ready to bring in the Year of the Rabbit!

Winnie is a very sweet girl.  She is always smiling and is very outgoing. The nannies love her because she is an excellent helper! Cleaning the table, mopping the floor, making beds, folding clothes and feeding babies are all fun and games for Winnie. She has a little humpback (a frontward curving of the spine that causes a bowing of the back), but it is said to not be too serious. Winnie walks very well, although occasionally she is a little unsteady. She expresses herself well but has difficulty articulating some of her words.

Amos 2015 (3)Amos-1Boy, born December 1999
Rough mental delay, hydrocephalic syndrome

 

Please help find his family before he ages out (at 16)!

 

Update May 2015: I was only with him for a couple minutes, but he seemed very polite and obedient. I gave him a little hug and he seemed to enjoy the attention. He seemed quiet but not overly shy. Nice boy.

Amos 2015 (1)

From someone who met him in 2012:   Amos is a wonderful sweet boy! He will do anything you’ll ask. In the summer the children will play outside and the more disabled children are sitting in a big box. Everyday he carries out the carpet to put in the box and he will carry out the benches and chairs to sit on as well. When the ‘outside-time’ is over, he would carry it all back in again. He doesn’t really talk, but I’m pretty sure he would be able to. He does make sounds and he loves to ‘sing’. While singing he makes sounds that could almost be words, but as long as he’s lacking of stimulation, I think he will not talk. He likes to dance around to.

He is a big help for the nurses. When a child has to go to the shower or potty he brings them, when a child falls down, he picks the child up, even without somebody telling him to do that. He is a really social butterfly. He cares about the children around him and I’m sure that he would be an awesome big brother, because that’s what he is for the children in his group.

When we met him in late June, he was all smiles, especially when playing with our iPad. He counted, demonstrated that he walks and runs without issue, and was friendly and happy to meet us.

It’s not easy to find a home when you’re a 12 year old boy. Maybe you could be the parents that Gavin needs to reach his full potential?

Kennedy CollageGirl, born 2002
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

13 year old Kennedy doesn’t have much time left! She will age out and forever lose the chance to have a family if a family doesn’t see her and get to China before her 14th birthday in April.

Kennedy spent 12 years of her life living in a family in the foster village on the orphanage grounds. Last year she moved with a family outside the orphanage grounds. She attends a public school and is in 3rd grade. Her favorite subject is math. She can add double digit numbers, multiply, and she can read fluently. She can write her name and her language is clear and fluent. She is learning a little English there as well. She understands adoption, but is a little scared. She walks independently, but has a noticeably different gait. Her CP affects her control- her movements are a bit jerky. Kennedy can go up and down stairs independently. She received PT when she was younger, but no longer receives that since she is doing everything independently. She has good fine motor skills and she understand everything and answers questions well. Her mental ability is normal. She has no issues with continence and she has normal hearing and vision. She is independent in her self-care- dressing and eating. She uses a spoon and chopsticks to eat, but prefers a spoon.

Kennedy’s best friend is Millie, who is also on the agency’s waiting child list. Her favorite foods are fruit- especially bananas. She likes toys that are special/unique and meaningful- not little kid toys. Her favorite animal is a puppy and her favorite color is pink. She hopes to be a teacher when she grows up! She is very mild and sweet. The orphanage staff described her as playful, extroverted, very friendly, helpful when asked, a follower, and obedient. They said she is only shy/quiet in front of strangers. Kennedy really enjoys painting.

The agency has several videos of Kennedy!

There is a $4,000 agency grant for Kennedy’s adoption with her current agency.

Charles (2)Boy, born June 2002
PRC
Congenital ichthyosis

12.5 year old Charles has waited far too long for a family of his own and the number one reason he has likely waited as long as he has is because he was born a boy. Charles is diagnosed with a mild form of congenital ichthyosis, a skin condition that can be easily managed. Charles will be celebrating his 13th birthday in June and then will only have one year left to find a family or he will age out at 14. There is no reason this child should age out. His needs are manageable and he deserves to be loved by a forever family of his own!Charles (1)

Charles’ file is very outdated. Charles is described as active and smart. He is independent with is personal care and he is good at answering questions. He enjoys singing and can also recite rhymes. Charles gets along well with the nannies, teachers, and other kids. He is able to express his needs and talks clearly and politely. Charles has good manners and is positive when greeting his teachers and friends. He loves to help the teachers sweep and mop the floor, wipe the desks, etc. Charles likes playing on the sliding board, swings, and trampolines. He is also fond of watching tv, taking pictures, and looking at pictures. Maybe Charles could be a photographer in the future, but first we need to find Charles a forever family!

Barry (2)

Barry (1)Boy, born December 2002
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Sweet Barry is now 12.5 years old and waiting for his forever family to see him. He was abandoned at a week old and was found by a stranger with a birth note. That person took him in and raised him until he was about 4.5 and then he was turned over to the local orphanage. It was determined when Barry came into care that he had cerebral palsy, but that he was very smart. He did need to use a walker when walking. Barry started receiving rehabilitation therapy once he came into the care of the orphanage. Barry wears orthotics on his legs in addition to using the walker for support. He is very determined and persistent and now insists on practicing standing with the support of the wall for 1-2 hours each day. Barry is a fighter and is very optimistic. He respects his elders and loves the younger children. He helps the nannies with what he can and helps take care of the other children. He practiced for two years so he could perform at the Chinese New Year celebration. He sang a popular song and his optimism affected everyone in attendance. Barry deserves to know the love of a forever family and sounds like a boy who would do so well in a family where he is able to receive the therapies he needs. Do you have room in your hear and home for Barry?

MilosBoy, born March 2002
PRC
post-op hernia, post-op sensitive special need, lesion/hairy patch on his spine

Meet 13 year old Milos! An agency in-country facilitator recently met Milos at a Journey of Hope camp. Those camps are typically for children who have been waiting around a long time for a family to choose them. This is an URGENT situation for Milos because he will turn 14 years old in March, 2016 and at that time he will forever lose the opportunity to be part of a forever family. Milos needs someone to see him as their son SOON and work hard to bring him home. His adoption could be expedited because he has less than a year before he will age out. Milos is diagnosed as having a repaired hernia, a repaired sensitive special need, and a lesion/hairy patch on his spine. According to the agencies in country facilitator, he has had surgeries and most of his physical issues were fixed. He is in good health now. Milos is in 6th grade at a nearby elementary school. He does not do very well at school in academics, but he is well behaved and obedient. He likes playing cooking and wants to be a chef. Milos likes helping his caretakers. He likes playing chess and playing with toy cars and airplanes. Milos is a good kid- he just doesn’t like to study. There are no mental concerns, he just does not do that well in school. He has a best friend at the orphanage whose paperwork is being submitted.

Milos wants to be adopted, but is very disappointed because he has been to many Journey of Hope camps. He feels hopeless and doesn’t feel like a family will come for him. The agency is heartbroken to read that and hopes that they can find him a family and that eventually that wonderful news could be shared with him and his hope will be renewed! Please help us spread the word about Milos. We know there is a family out there for every child- we just need you help in finding them!

LeroyBoy, born February 2001
cerebral palsy, cognitive delays, spastic diplegia, inborn hydrocephalus, secondary cardiopathy

Leroy is one of the cleverest kids there, and he speaks a lot – he is rather impudent 😉

He gets sad, when other children get presents and he doesn’t.  He understands much and likes ice-cream.

From someone who met him in 2012:
I thought he was wonderful…again one of the lucky 9 boys to be in the small group home, picked because he is so very able. He is clever and could achieve much. He was full of smiles and laughter when I met him. He was very polite and enjoyed the excitement of a visit. He really would thrive in a home environment.
From a family who met him, summer 2014:
Leroy is a very high functioning boy and definitely more mature than the other kids in his home. At first he wasn’t sure if he wanted a family, but after seeing so many of his friends leave with new parents he has changed his mind. He is very determined and has recently started to walk after years of being unable to move except by dragging his legs. He has a really good sense of humor and definitely understands everything going on around him. He was never inappropriate with us but had no trouble cracking jokes.

Mild to moderate mental delays

Soleil comes very highly recommended from the orphanage director. She has shown great progress since she entered the orphanage.

She is running out of time — a family must be found for her before she turns 16!

Update June 2013:
Soliel really stands out.  She is a helper. She was helping the younger children stand up and dance and they were watching her to mimic what to do. She seems to be one of children that helps the orphanage staff as she is able to follow directions. She can read and speaks very clearly when asked questions. It is unclear why she is in this specific orphanage and they pointed her out specifically as needing a family! She is a very sweet girl who said she has dreamed about having a family but isn’t sure if she will ever have one- it just about broke my heart. There is also video available with her in it!

Girl, born August 2000

Polly is a 12-year-old girl with a mild mental delay who has a developmental disorder of speech and language. She is in need of dental care due to some issues with her teeth.

Polly is relatively well-developed physically when compared to the age norms.  The lack of parental care, a mother’s caress and physical and emotional contact in early infancy has affected the child’s psychological development negatively by lowering the quality of her behavioral activity.

There are no significant irregularities as regards Polly’s psychomotor development. She demonstrates satisfactory verbal, non-verbal and eye contact. Her strength is correspondent to her bodily development. The child has normal mobility and well-coordinated movements. She would benefit from active physical activities and sports.   The girl has adapted well to her classmates at school. Her attention is unsteady during the classes; she has limited attention span and low stability of concentration and can easily be distracted.

Additional medical information available.

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.

Mild dysgnosia

Her paperwork is old, from 2009 and it states:
For her better growth, we sent her into foster family. During this period, she become more outgoing, and will not afraid of people, and can call people. In kindergarten, nannies teach her dance, she study seriously, nannies and children all liked her very much.  She is a beautiful girl.
From a volunteer who met her:
Joy is getting better and better since coming [here]. With enough teaching and training we hope Joy will be able to live independently eventually. Joy was hit when she was little. We only spent several hours with her, but she wasn’t aggressive when we were there. She actually was quite caring. She can cook and do everything for herself. School is very hard for her and when she can’t do her school work it makes her very sad. Joy only lived with [the volunteer]for a few months, but she had improved greatly in that time. Her behavior was much better. She isn’t sure about her being able to live independently.

JimmyBoy, born July 2002
PRC
Blind

Jimmy is blind. Jimmy lived with his grandmother when he was little, but when she died he moved to his local orphanage. When he came to the specila foster home for the visually impaired, he was very sad. The first time he smiled was when he received training on how to use his cane. He was so excited to be able to walk by himself! No one had ever shown him that he could be independent. Jimmy has now run twice in the (mini) marathon and he often goes to the park to run 3-5km. Jimmy has progressed enough in his studies to be able to attend the School of the Blind. He has already been studying at this school for 2 years. He has piano lessons and he is very good, he loves being able to express himself through music. His caretakers are so proud of the way his personality and character have developed. Jimmy has worked hard at his piano lessons for the past few years and they have seen his confidence grow as he is impacted by the music he plays. He is very talented! When asked he said that he loves to draw for fun and his favorite food is noodles. For his favorite studies in school he likes anything that has to do with calculators and math. His favorite song is Edelweiss from the Sound of music. When asked what he wants to be when he grows up he adamantly answered a pianist! this talented boy is waiting for a family who can help him further his studies on both academics and music. Are you that music loving family?

Victoria CollageGirl, born December 2002
PRC
Severe scoiosis, listed as CP but family should be open to other possibilities

Beautiful Victoria recently turned 13 years old. She’s SO special. Victoria is warmhearted and she has a gift for painting and drawing. She attends school in the orphanage and her favorite subject is painting. The staff told us that she can read and write well and that her mental abilities are totally normal. Victoria is a vegetarian and her favorite food is a tomato. She can eat independently and uses a spoon. Her favorite toys are Barbies and her best friend is a sweet girl who sleeps next to her. She loves the color pink and her favorite animal is a cat. She loves to sing, color, and draw and hopes one day to be a painter/artist. She is left handed. Victoria also loves to recite poems and tell stories. All of the other children in the orphanage love to listen to her stories!

Victoria understood what it meant to be adopted and when agency staff asked her if she wanted to be adopted, she got a big smile on her beautiful face. She is a very smart girl who came into care at the approximate age of two. She has lived in the orphanage ever since. The staff described her as quiet, shy, obedient, kind, creative, friendly, and smiley. She has good manners and is very polite. It was more than clear to us that she is a very special little girl with a bright smile and a light in her eyes!

As for her special needs, her file lists post-op cerebral palsy. The orphanage stated that when she was little she could move a lot, but now she doesn’t like to because her arms are not strong enough. She does have feeling in her legs and can move them. She can also sit up on her bed, with support. It seemed to our untrained eye that she had severe scoliosis and will need some extensive surgeries and that it very well could be a matter of life and death for her. It also appeared that she had unrepaired club feet and she also had a scar on her back- possibly spina bifida. She is toilet trained and can tell the nanny when she has to go to the bathroom, but she does need some help. If she doesn’t go to the bathroom quickly, she will have to go to the hospital and get a catheter. Her and her caretakers now know that when she feels the need to go, she needs to go right away. Victoria’s hearing and vision are normal and she is receiving therapy and special exercise 3-4 times a day. Her nanny loves her very much and it was clear she did everything she could to take care of her the best she could, but it is not enough. They said she was unable to have surgery in country.

Victoria will need a family to move forward and be in China for her before her 14th birthday, in December 2016.

Elijah (4) Elijah (3)Boy, born June 2003
PRC
Cerebral Palsy

Elijah was found abandoned at the orphanage gate at five years old. On admission to the institute it was found that he suffered from cerebral palsy, was tested to have normal intelligence and was found to have weakened lower limbs. Although he tried, he could not walk, and he was given a wheelchair. He showed his strong will, and integrated into the group life in the institute. At the age of 7 years, he liked to play games with peers and share the toys with other children. He is polite to others, and always smiles at strangers who visit the orphanage.

He has received physical therapy at the institute, and after great diligence and perseverance on Elijah’s part, he can now walk slowly while holding onto handrails. In the institute, he is an obedient and sensible boy, and he is adored by the caretakers and medical staffs. The nannies and orphanage directors hope a family will chose him as he will make a wonderful addition to any family.

lazarus2lazarusBoy, born 2000
Down syndrome

He needs out NOW!! Please let’s find him a family!!

A Family must file the I600a before July 2016!

From a family that met him 3/14:
I love him. Quite simply, I really truly love him, and I hope someone goes and gets him immediately! If you could meet him, you would never want to let him go!!! He was in the bed next to another child I was talking to, and he fluttered his hand to me, and then grinned the cutest, most precious little smile I’ve ever seen! I turned and spoke to him and he turned on the full charm- he is very good at eye contact and a total flirt! His facial expressions are hilarious- and although I didn’t hear him speak, he is VERY good at communicating his needs/wants! He has so much personality. He pushed his covers off, and I noticed his tights had slid down almost to his knees, but before I could fix them, he gave me a sheepish grin and tried to reach for them, to cover himself up. I pulled them up for him, and he grinned a huge thank you, but then started wiggling his foot and pointing to it and frowning and sighing. The nanny came to adjust it, and they shared that he likes his tights fixed “just so” lol. The staff is quite worried about him, his belly is very distended and although he eats very much and well, he is not growing. (They pulled his shirt up to show me their concerns and he politely pulled it back down lol). His legs are very thin, but this is a great orphanage and they definitely feed the kids very well, so I would guess he has some type of digestive issues, maybe Celiac that keeps him from absorbing the nutrients very well and could cause that type of bloating in the abdomen. He can pull to sitting and stand and tried to take steps even, and is quite eager to do so- but his stomach weighs him down and his legs are just very thin to bear his weight very long. This sweet, wonderful, charming little guy needs a family FAST to get his medical needs straightened out so he can enjoy his life. He has the most adorable little face and his smile will steal your heart. He has so much eagerness for life, and his receptive language seemed to be good, but I hate seeing him without the medical care that is so easily available in the USA. Definitely one of my favorite kids ever- he totally stole my heart!

Girl, Born June 2001
From her medical records: congenital microcephaly, autism

Justine is a pretty girl with dark hair and eyes. She is fully mobile and active. Her face bears features of FAS, but this is not documented and is only a cautionary disclosure.

As with all children living in these difficult conditions, this child’s cognitive development has regressed significantly since he/she was younger. It is of crucial importance that any family considering the adoption of an older child from the mental institution setting be well prepared for what to expect with regards to how the neglect and lack of adequate medical care and nourishment has affected this child. These children all have TREMENDOUS potential for improvement, and deserve to have a life outside these four walls.

Aurora (1)

Aurora (2)Girl, born May 2003
PRC
Brain Damage

At the orphanage Aurora likes to lead the younger girls. She will hold their hands and take them to play on the slide. When the children want to play on the trampoline, they will always call their “big sister,” and she will happily lift them up to play.

She has a strong ability to be self-sufficient. She likes to wash her own socks. When she speaks, the sound is not very clear, but each time after she finishes washing her things, she will run to the nanny and say, “Nanny, I am done washing, are they clean?” The nanny will pat her cheek and tell her how great she is, and she will happily hang the things out to dry.

The orphanage sent Aurora to a special education school to attend class. When she first went to the school, she was not very used to it and she didn’t talk much with the other children. With the teacher’s help, she started to slowly try to talk to her classmates. Because her pronunciation was unclear, she would use gestures when she spoke to help explain. It wasn’t long before she started to like going to school. She learned with her classmates and always participated actively in their games. She worked very hard and always earned the teachers’ praise. After class, she would take the initiative to set out the tables and chairs, and she would neatly put her school supplies in her schoolbag. She is a little girl who loves cleanliness. Each morning she makes her own bed and cleans up her area.

Now Aurora has grown even prettier and she is especially polite. When she sees a nanny, she will say “Hello, Nanny!” on her own initiative. She particularly likes to wear pretty skirts and twirl around, and she will always praise herself, saying, “Nanny, I am so pretty!” She is a hard-working girl, and although the clarity of her speech isn’t very good, she is very diligent. Each morning when she wakes up, she will read her lessons aloud, and if there is a part she doesn’t understand, she will ask the teacher. At school if she earns rewards of red flowers, beaded necklaces, or pencils, she will share with the other children on her own initiative.

Handsome Fritz is already 13 years old.   He has blonde hair and hazel eyes.  Fritz is blessed to live in a nice orphanage, but he needs a family of his own.  He is considered lower functioning, and really needs a family who is experienced with adopting older children.

Fritz may struggle with some sensory or ASD challenges….he is very responsive but needs a lot of self-help and guidance from parents/caregivers.   He would probably do best in a family where he can get lots of attention from his parents and older typical siblings….be the focus of the family!

Wonderful program, outstanding agency partner…older parents, large families, and single moms welcome.   More photos and medical info available.

Adam 2014_2DOB: 2001
Down syndrome, autistic traits

YAY!!!!!!  A new photo of Adam!

 

Adam has lived in a mental institution since shortly after his 4th birthday. Visitors to the institution have described it as very nice and more like a nice hotel than a mental institution. The children are well cared for and have many opportunities to experience things. Yet Adam is still missing the love and attention that comes with having a family of his own.

Adam is 10 years old. He walks and his gross motor skills are well developed. He does not talk at this time but does follow verbal directions. He feeds himself with a spoon but still requires some assistance with dressing. He plays with toys and enjoys music time, but prefers to play alone instead of with the other children. He is not aggressive toward himself nor others and is described as “a calm child”. He does the stereotypical rocking back and forth when sitting, which is a common “orphanage behavior”. He attends school in the local village. He’s in a special education class. He is not interested in most school activities, though he does enjoy music time.

UPDATE DEC 2014:
Adam is currently living in a group home. He walks independently and goes up and down stairs, but is very careful and always seeks support before acting. He electively carries out orders and doesn’t react to his name. He plays for a short time and doesn’t seek contact with the children from the group. He has preferences for certain toys but doesn’t use them according to their purpose. He is apt to seclusion and avoids group activities. He is a calm child, reacts to emotional stimuli and differentiates different tones of the voice. During celebrations and musical activities he moves away to play on his own. He requires assistance for tasks such as dressing and toileting.

Photos and videos from December 2014 are available through the agency.

The child considerably lags behind for his age in his physical development. His motions are uncoordinated. The fine motor skills are not mastered. The child walks independently and climbs up stairs with support.  His attention is difficult to attract and to keep. His memory is with limited volume and the memorization is primarily mechanic, with accumulation.  The child reacts with increased anxiety and cry to unfamiliar environments. He participates in group activities with the other children and actively contacts them. He cheers up when contacted by an adult and reacts by uttering sounds of cheer and watching the adult in the eyes. Chad is oriented in the space in the different parts of the day.  He demonstrates bond, cheer, anxiety, and guilt. He calmly observes the children playing. He would play with them and is happy from their contacts. He carries out elementary instructions: “come”, “sit down”, “give me your hand”. The child doesn’t have developed skills for self-help and needs constant support. He can eat independently. He can’t dress or undress but cooperates when changed. He reacts to his name. He is oriented in the daily routine

He understands the speech of the others when it is simple. He pronounces single sounds by imitation. He is interactive, seeks contact, and demonstrates selectivity and preferences in his interactions with the other children and the personnel. He has expressive facial mimics that he shows his emotions with. He likes to listen to songs, laughs out loud and claps with his hands. He moves in tune with the music and is very mobile and energetic. He attracts the attention of the adults by pulling them or patting them with his hands because he can’t speak. He pronounces separate syllables – “ma”, “ba”, “da”, as well as words with repetitive syllables – “mama”, “baba”.

Tanner 2014Boy, Born July 2001

Down syndrome, deafness, strabismus

Tanner was transferred to a group home in 2014. He is very small for his age and has delays in all aspects of his development. While he has an official diagnosis of deafness, he does respond to some sounds, so it is thought that he has some degree of hearing loss, but that he is not completely deaf. He does not have any speech, but he does respond to some basic commands and also to hand gestures. It is possible that many of his delays could be compensated for once his hearing issues are addressed.

Tanner attends a school for children with special needs. He doesn’t have problems following the rules in class and at school. He is calm and usually smiling. He is the favorite of the children at school. He is not aggressive and doesn’t get irritated by the other children. His expressive speech is not developed. He carries out simple commands – “stop”, “sit down”, “give me”, and “take”. He knows his place in the classroom – he has a favorite spot in each classroom. He is oriented in the rooms and partially in the school building. He opens and closes the closets. He can lock and unlock the doors of the closets if the key is put in. He tries to put in the key (rarely manages) and is happy if he succeeds. He likes to look at books with pictures. He has a favorite book in each classroom, picks it up and manipulates with it. He observes the other children while they work. He shows interest in pictures of animals. He works with desire in the classes for physical education.

Photos and videos from December 2014 are available through the agency.
